  • Restrictions in place from 10pm to 6am for next three nights

Uisce Éireann Statement: 

Overnight restrictions are necessary for Uisce Éireann customers in Bantry and Kealkill over the coming nights to maintain a daytime supply for the community. 

The restrictions will be in place from 10pm to 6am tonight, Saturday 30 March; tomorrow night, Sunday 31 March; and Monday night 1 April to allow local reservoir levels to recharge. 

Customers in the following areas may experience outages or reduced pressure: Bantry and Kealkill and surrounding areas.

We understand the inconvenience that restrictions cause but they are necessary to ensure we have a daytime supply for all our customers. We will continue to monitor the reservoir levels each day and will provide an update if further restrictions are needed on Tuesday. We thank customers for their patience.

The majority of customers should have adequate storage in their attic tanks to provide for essential uses such as flushing toilets for the duration of this restriction. However, customers can help conserve water by not running taps needlessly, taking showers instead of baths and postponing using dishwashers and washing machines, where possible. Customers can find useful water saving tips on our website

The Uisce Éireann customer care helpline is open 24/7 on 1800 278 278 and customers can also contact us on X @IWCare with any queries. For updates on local water supply issues, please visit the Water Supply Updates section of
