Checked June 22nd 2020
Bord Gais Energy (who are owned by UK based firm Centrica) now have seven competitors for the supply of Natural Gas to households in Ireland. ( Flogas , SSE Airtricity , Electric Ireland, Energia , Just Energy , Iberdrola and Panda Power.)
Which supplier has the cheapest gas prices in Ireland ?
Shown below is a gas price comparison based on an annual gas usage of 11000 kwH per year. This is the typical usage for a medium-sized household using gas for heating and hot water. We have worked out the savings that could be made in the first year for someone currently on Bord Gais Energy standard rates switching to another provider. We have shown the five cheapest switching deals based on savings over 12 months.
Tip: All gas households also use electricity – and you can usually get a better overall deal if you get both your gas and electricity from the same supplier.

As you can see from the gas price comparison below – a Bord Gais Energy customer on standard rates not paying by direct debit, using 11000 kWh of gas a year would save €158 over the first year on their gas bill by switching to Iberdrola’s cashback deal . (€616 in year one)
If you are not already with Bord Gais for gas – then they have a discounted offer for switchers that works out at €613 in year one.
The next cheapest deal is to switch to Flogas. Their 34% discount works out at €624 in year one.

Be aware that Irish energy comparison sites don’t always include cashback offers when calculating the total annual charges. So, don’t always assume that the supplier they show at the top of their list will actually be the best deal for you. You need to add on any cashback offers to work out the total savings over 12 months. (We have done that for you in the table above)
Tip – 12 months after switching energy supplier you should always look at switching again to get the best deal. It only takes a few minutes .
