Emergency Repairs

Key contact telephone numbers and what to do if you have a housing-related emergency out of Wicklow County Council's usual working hours. Please ensure you contact the relevant Municipal District in relation to repiars.

After-hours Housing repairs

If you have an emergency outside of Wicklow County Council's normal opening hours, the following telephone number may be used by Wicklow County Council tenants (ie residing in Wicklow County Council-owned houses) in the event of a serious housing repair issue in relation to:

  • Gas installation in the house (gas boilers etc)
  • Oil installation (oil boilers)
  • General Plumbing (burst water pipes, burst water storage tanks etc)
  • Electrical systems (eg major electrical fault)

(Tenants should consult their Tenants Handbook first, as the normal rules around Tenant Responsible Repairs still apply. Routine repairs should be reported during normal hours to your local Municipal District office.)


After-Hours Housing Repairs Assistance Number: (01) 291 0911

Calls will be answered by a call centre that will route the call to an appropriate contractor.

This number will only be in operation outside normal Wicklow County Council opening hours (including the Christmas and New Year period).


Housing Repairs 

If there are repairs that need to be carried out to your home, you should first check in your Tenants Handbook whether it is your responsibility to carry out the repair.  If the particular problem is the Council’s responsibility you should contact your local Municipal District Office directly during office hours 09.00 to 17.00 hours. We will attend to your request as soon as possible.
