Compare Mortgage Rates in Ireland

Comparison of Mortgage Interest Rates in Ireland

We regularly do a comparison of the mortgage rates on offer to new customers from the major Irish lenders.

Listed below are links to our pages showing the current lowest mortgage rates on offer for you to make comparisons.  We compare variable interest rate mortgages as well as a selection of fixed-rate mortgages.

Fixed rates are currently lower than variable-rate mortgages in Ireland .

Mortgage rates were at low levels for a few years now – but ECB rate increases resulted in mortgage rate rises in 2023. Mortgage rates may start to decrease in 2024.

The current lowest variable mortgage rate available (May 2024) for first-time buyers who have only a 10% deposit is from Haven , EBS or AIB at – 4.15 % .

The lowest fixed rate for a 90% LTV is a 4-year fixed rate of 3.45% (If the house has a BER better than C1) Haven .
Avant Money has a 3-year fixed rate of 4.05% with no BER conditions.

For an LTV under 60% the lowest fixed mortgage rate without any BER requirements, is currently available from PTSB at 3.8% (Fixed for 4 years).
You can get 3.45% fixed for 4 years on houses with a BER of B3 or better from Haven.
Both of these mortgages are only available through brokers.

Whilst we strive to maintain the various charges and rates and update them when changes occur – customers should double-check with the financial institutions or companies for confirmation of current rates or prices.

Switching Mortgage

If you have had a mortgage for a few years – you will owe less on it and the value of your house will have increased. For example – if you took out a €300,000 mortgage on a €330,000 house 5 years ago with a rate of 3.7% – you will now owe €260,000. House prices have risen about 40% in the past 5 years – so it is probably worth around €460,00. This works out at an LTV (Loan to Value) of just 57% – which will allow you to get a much lower mortgage interest rate. See some examples of Mortgage Switching Calculations .

Fixed Rate or Variable – Which is Best ?

The most important thing to remember is with a fixed rate, you have the safety of knowing exactly what your mortgage repayments will be for a certain period. You will not be affected by sudden increases (or decreases).  With interest rates at their lowest for many years – it is likely that variable rates will increase during the next few years.

Over the past several years it was usually the case that variable mortgage rates were often lower than fixed rates –  but right now some of the fixed rate deals are lower than variable rates.
