Notary service

Doyle & Company offers comprehensive Notary Services to meet your legal documentation needs. We provide efficient and reliable notary services with two experienced notaries, Finnian Doyle and Caolán Doyle, operating from our convenient locations at 123 Cabra Road, Dublin 7, and Main Street, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15.

Our Notary Services encompass a wide range of requirements. We can assist with attesting signatures on various documents for court or commercial use abroad, witnessing the power of attorneys for property transactions overseas, certifying copy documents for international use, attesting copy foreign documents, and arranging for documents to obtain an Apostille from the Department of Justice.

As Notary Public officers appointed by the Chief Justice of Ireland, our role is to authorise documents for use outside of the country. When you engage our Notary Services, we will open a file, conduct Anti-Money Laundering (AML) checks on your transaction, and assess your status as a politically exposed person.
The Notary will then perform a Notarial Act, which may involve certifying the execution of a deed, contract, or other document or attesting that a copy document is an original or authentic copy of the original. We will also maintain a record of your transaction to comply with AML, Know Your Customer (KYC), and politically exposed person (PEP) checks.

Trust Doyle & Company to provide professional and thorough assistance when you require Notary Services. We prioritise accuracy, efficiency, and adherence to legal requirements to ensure your documents are correctly authorised for international use.
