Is Bord Gáis a Free Phone Number? Except for the Minicom, 850 number, all Bord Gáis Energy phone numbers are free of any extra charge. Depending on your phone plan, some operators may charge you for calls to a landline.

Below, we elaborate in detail on the assistance you can expect when you contact Bord Gáis at the corresponding departmental phone number.

What Is the Bord Gáis Contact Number?


The company being so large, we have divided the Bord Gáis Energy contact numbers into the following categories:

What's the Bord Gáis Contact Number for Existing Residential Customers?

If you are currently a Bord Gáis customer and have a query regarding your gas or electricity account, contact the main customer care number. We recommend having a recent bill at hand as you may need information on it to confirm details with the Bord Gáis customer service agent.

As their customer care number is not a 1800, 1850, or 1890 number, you should also be able to contact them from abroad without any issues.

Reasons you may need to contact Bord Gáis customer service could be:

  • You wish to close your Bord Gáis account
  • You have an issue with a recent bill
  • Other general queries

To contact customer service you can call 01 611 0101 Monday to Friday from 8 am to 8 pm, or Saturday from 9 am to 5:30 pm

What's the Bord Gáis Contact Number for New Customers?

If you are a new customer or are thinking of becoming one, you will want to use the Bord Gáis sales contact number for any of the following products:

  • Electricity contract
  • Gas contract
  • Dual Fuel contract

As it can be somewhat confusing to do the necessary mental arithmetic when discussing tariffs over the phone, we recommend you check out our information on Bord Gáis’ tariffs first. It is presented in a handy table format to make it easier to compare electricity and gas prices in Ireland.

It can also help to have a flexible idea of what you’re looking for, so be sure to do your homework. Bord Gáis has several tariffs with add-ons, such as the Hive smart thermostat, plus boiler care packages. It can therefore get quite confusing on the phone quite quickly.

To contact Bord Gáis Sales, call 01 611 0151 from Monday to Friday 8 am to 8 pm, and Saturday from 9 am to 5:30 pm.

What's the Bord Gáis Phone Number for Moving Home?

If you're moving home and are currently a Bord Gáis customer, contact the company on 01 611 01 60 from Monday to Friday: 8 am-8 pm, and Saturday: 9 am-5.30 pm.

Many customers are unsure of what they need to do when moving in or out of a property when it comes to their energy bills. With a dedicated moving department, you can breathe a sigh of relief and won’t have to worry about being double-billed when moving into a new place, or losing any current discount you already have with Bord Gáis.

Once you've got yourself organised don't forget to create your online account so you can manage all your bills easily in one place and track your rewards.

Be sure to have the following information at hand when you contact Bord Gáis:

  • Your account details (available on a copy of a recent bill).
  • The MPRN and GPRN numbers for your new home.
  • Contact details for your new landlord if you are moving into a rented property.
  • Meter readings (for your previous property and the new one once you've settled in).

Note that not all Irish energy providers request photos of meter readings with a newspaper in them. It is still good practice to do so as you can easily prove the date you took the meter reading.

How Do I Change My Phone Number with Bord Gáis?

If you have moved to a new rental property or bought an existing property, remember to change the energy contract to your name and provide your contact phone number. If you do not do so, the meter will be registered in someone else’s name.

Failure to do so may put you in one of the following situations, particularly in the case of Pay As You Go meters;

  • You may be paying a higher rate as part of a debt-repayment agreement.
  • You may be actively paying off the previous resident’s debt.
  • Contributing to your own debt if you haven’t budgeted for the sudden increase in your electricity and gas bills.
  • You won’t be able to benefit from any of the discounts on standard rates for new Bord Gáis customers.
  • It’s quite probable that you will default to the more expensive standard rates.

The easiest way to save money on your energy bills is by switching every 12 months, moving into a new property is the perfect occasion to do just that. Check out our detailed information on Bord Gáis’s current rates and tariffs before deciding to switch.

What Is the Bord Gáis Contact Number for Businesses?

Bord Gáis don't only supply domestic properties but also are the supplier for a great number of large to smaller business in Ireland.

If you are a Bord Gáis business customer, the phone number you will need to call is 01 611 01 33 available Mon-Fri from 8.30am to 6.30pm.

How Do I Cancel a Direct Debit with Bord Gáis?

If you're moving house, you might be tempted to just cancel your Bord Gáis direct debit or standing order so you can set up a new account at the next property. However, it's extremely important to call Bord Gáis to let them know you're moving since if you just cancel the direct debit and not inform them, your account will remain open and you will still be charged for the energy. Just cancelling your direct debit can also lead to legal problems if you do owe money so you just have to let them know.
