Cheapest Gas Prices in Ireland

Gas Prices in Ireland Compared  (For New customers only).
Checked April 2nd 2020

Bord Gais Energy (who are owned by UK based firm Centrica) now have 7 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 cheapest switching deals from each supplier 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 €129 over the first year on their gas bill by switching to Electric Ireland or Flogas

 Figures include VAT, standing charges and carbon tax. Rounded to the nearest Euro. Carbon tax is currently €46.19 inc VAT on usage of 11000KwH
Prices for new customers paying by direct debit.

in Year


Electric Ireland (€75 cashback)
Panda Power €673 €92 €1034.755
Bord Gais Std Rate€7640€1016.02


You will usually 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 .

  1. Thanks for the question Jacob .Carbon Tax is the missing amount. On Average usage, it is currently €40.70 annually plus VAT for all gas suppliers.

  2. 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)
