Gas Prices in Ireland Compared

Gas Prices in Ireland Compared  (For New customers only) Checked  September 9th 2019

Bord Gais Energy (who are owned by UK based firm Centrica) now have 6 competitors for the supply of Natural Gas to households in Ireland. ( Flogas ,  SSE Airtricity , Electric Ireland , Energia , Just Energy 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 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 cheapest switching deals from each supplier over 12 months.

Tip: All gas users also use electricity – so you might get a better overall deal if you get both your gas and electricity from the same supplier. See our page on Dual Fuel Prices Compared

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  €154 over the first year on their gas bill by switching to Flogas or Electric Ireland.   Lower than average users of gas would be better off switching to Electric Ireland because of the €100 cashback.

Figures include VAT ,  standing charges and carbon tax. Rounded to the nearest Euro.  Prices for new customers paying by direct debit.

You might get a better overall deal if you switch both your gas and electricity to the same supplier. See our page on Dual Fuel Prices Compared

Be aware that Irish energy comparison sites don’t 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 .

    • Hi Anthony. That €112.34 might be the charge for existing customers – but the standing charge and unit rate is lower on the promotional offer for new and existing customers. (It will increase after a year)
