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 a Vodafone prepay customer as much as €13.50 See this link: Cost 0f 1890 Calls
We were hoping that the government departments and state owned companies such as Irish Water would stop using these 1890 numbers or the phone companies would include them in the inclusive call bundles – but it doesn’t seem to have happened.
Irish Water so there will probably be tens of 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 some or all calls to landlines – the call will be included in the bundle.
