Contact Numbers for Irish Water

We have written before about the potential high costs of ringing 1890 numbers – especially from mobile phones.  Waiting for half an hour on an 1890 line could cost an O2 prepay customer €10.50  See this link  Cost 0f 1890 Calls

We were hoping that the government and state owned companies such as Irish Water, Electric Ireland etc would stop using these 1890 numbers – but it doesn’t seem to have happened.

Irish Water will be writing to most of the country about registering for water charges -  so there will probably be thousands of call to their cutomer services line. On the Irish Water application forms the main contact numbers are 1890 numbers.

Here are the alternative numbers you can use for calling Irish Water – which are normal Dublin landline numbers . If you have an inclusive calls bundle that includes unlimited cals to landlines – the call will be free.

Energia Promotional Code

Energia  have a  promotional code that gets new customers a further 2% off their already cheap gas and electricity unit rates.
The promo code is only valid when you switch to them for dual fuel.  The latest promo code is SAVEME. (Extended to Sept 30th 2014). You can use this  code here on the Energia Online Switching Page


We have calculated that using this code will get the cheapest price for both fuels  for someone using the  national average for gas and electricity. This price is €40 a year cheaper than the latest Bord Gais Energy dual fuel offer  – details of that here

Using the average usage figures of 5300 kw/h  Electricity and 13800 kw/h Gas -  for anyone switching to Energia using the  promotional code – we have calculated that the 1st year total charge for electricity and gas  would be  €1884 .
This is the currently the best price for getting both fuels from a single supplier or for getting gas and electricity from 2 separate suppliers.

 It is a one year contract and like all the suppliers – prices are not fixed for the year. Leaving Energia before the end of the contract will incur a penalty of €50.

Gas Price Comparison

Energia only began offering gas and electricity to residential customers in Ireland in January 2014. Their introductory offer was, at the time , the lowest available price for customers who switched to them and signed up for dual fuel.  But after just a few days -  Electric Ireland responded with a better offer on Electricity for new customers.

Then we had  the One Big Switch marketing company which  organised  a €80 cashback offer for customers who switched their electricity  to Bord Gais.

The main thing to realise is – that if you are stuck on old ESB/Bord Gais standard rates you can save significant amounts by changing your supplier or even just by switching to paying by Direct Debit and getting eBills.
