We always try to keep potential homebuyers or mortgage switchers up to date on the lowest mortgage rates in Ireland. Doing a comparison of Irish mortgage interest rates is easier in 2017 than it was a few years ago – because there are fewer lenders operating in Ireland and a lot less mortgage products.
See our full list of the Lowest Mortgage Rates here.
Currently the best looking deal for first time buyers or switcher on a 3 year fixed rate is
3% from Bank of Ireland – with a maximum LTV of 80% – BOI are offering upto 3% cashback too for new mortgage customers which will come in handy.
(You can get 2.99% at KBC or Ulster – but you have to have a current account with them )
If you only have a 10% deposit – then 3.2% is the lowest “no strings”three year fixed rate in the country at the moment from Bank of Ireland (Also with upto 3% cashback)
One of the best variable mortgage rates for new customers is from AIB at 3.3% with a maximum LTV of 80%. (3.2% is available at KBC if you open a current account)
If you can only manage a deposit of 10% – the current lowest variable rate is from AIB, Haven or KBC at 3.5%.
If you are thinking of switching your mortgage to get a lower rate – you should take account of the fact there will be legal costs and valuation fees involved (around €1,300 in total) But many lenders are offering cashback to new customers to help with switching costs.
