Oil Prices in Ireland
Cheapest Oil Ireland has been comparing heating oil prices and offering advice and price trends for over 15 years. Nothing gets added (prices are commission free) and we don’t charge suppliers to list their prices. We are funded purely from adverts that appear on the website.
In Ireland, the further an oil distributor has to travel both to collect and to deliver your heating oil means it is going to cost more. If they are delivering a smaller quantity then the burden of that delivery cost is going to be shared across fewer litres of heating oil.
Our advice is to try to order in larger quantities of heating oil if possible as that means you will be incurring fewer delivery costs. Check that every radiator has a TRV (Thermostatic Radiator Valve) installed and is used accordingly – switching off radiators in rooms less used.
Consider replacing an old and inefficient boiler. Our energy report can show you how much you can save and how much oil you use compared to others with a similar sized home.
Demand will affect prices with distributors reducing their margins to attract more heating oil orders when they are less busy however this represents a very small percentage of the cost of heating oil and fluctuations because of this will be small. We’ve seen some of the most expensive prices in summer.
The largest factors for the cost of heating oil in Ireland are taxation including carbon tax, stock market oil prices as well as exchange rates since heating oil on the stock market is priced in dollars.

How Cheapest Oil Works
Cheapest Oil Ireland are completely independent and impartial. We have no affiliation with any oil distributor – not now, not ever.
Many prices are updated every 15 minutes. Other prices are updated by oil distributors the moment they change. If a price has not been updated in a few days, it just means it most likely has not changed in that time.
