Richard Burrows, governor of the bank told shareholders that no bids on the table from potential purchasers.
According to Reuturs, he said: "As of today, standing here in front of you, we have no approaches from any companies with respect to anything that could lead to a takeover of Bank of Ireland."
However, Mr Burrows refused to answer further questions from shareholders about potential takeovers in a bid to avoid speculation.
The Bank of Ireland has said that the current economic slowdown is having a negative impact on its earnings.
"The slowdown in the overall level of activity and volume growth is most pronounced in our retail businesses in Ireland,'' it said in a statement.
