recently we carried out a plumbing price survey. We asked some plumbers on our website to what they charge for a callout fee and what is their hourly rate. Here is a selection of the replies we got below:-
Mark from Bettystown: My own rates are e70+VAT 13.5% for call out which covers 1st hour on job.
Michael from Leixlip: e80 euro call includes first hour.. e45 an hr after that
Jamie from Drogheda: Call out e70.. Hourly e40

David from Galway: Service is available 24/7. Prices vary from €30 to €100 per hour depending on time of day and day of week.

The majority of plumbers in Dublin were quoting a fee for calling out (which included the first hour) of between €60 and €80 and an hourly rate thereafter of €35 to €45 per hour. The callout charges were similar outside of Dublin with hourly rates ranging from €30 to €40 per hour.
I hope this helps some of you who are interested in getting some plumbing done in the near future whether it’s a repair or maintenance of an existing installation or a new installation.
