Niamh was amazing to work with. She made it so simple for me. I was so panicked about the whole thing and she made it seem like a walk in the park.

Myself and my husband dealt with Richard Westman for our life insurance policy. I'm not sure I can even give this man the justice he deserves with words. I have honestly never come across such a genuinely kind, caring, patient, non-judgemental, courteous man. He made the whole process so simple and easy, giving us all the information we needed without having to question him about anything. Richard went a step beyond to help us get the best policy at a budget we could afford. I highly recommend requesting Richard if you are ringing to look for a quote.
Colin provided outstanding support with my life insurance cover. He was knowledgeable and efficient, making the process smooth and easy. I would highly recommend Colin and LowQuotes as a provider.

Look no further than lowquotes.ie. I can’t recommend Richie Westman enough. He was incredible while working with us. Even though there was a lot of delay and back and forth from our end, he was extremely patient and accommodating. He made sure we had all the information we needed even if it meant repeating things to us a multiple times.If you’re starting your first time mortgage journey, Richie is the the guy you’d want to talk with. Well done Richie and thanks a ton!
Had an amazing experience with Richie Westman. He was patient, super accommodating, and very clear on his explanation when I had questions. I really appreciate his time and expertise, his help will certainly alleviate the some of the stress involved in securing a mortgage.
Had an outstanding experience with Low Quotes, especially with Alan, while arranging mortgage protection. Alan's professionalism and assistance made the process incredibly smooth. His proactive approach alleviated our stress, as he went the extra mile to stay in touch and ensure we had all necessary documentation to finalize our mortgage. Highly recommend Low Quotes without hesitation.
I would rather not think of any other company to deal with Life insurance and Mortgage protection. I dealt with Seamus who really helped me understand the process as I was a newbie, by providing an exceptional service and information. 100% friendly experience and a very smooth process.
I cannot speak highly enough of Bernadine Day. Our mortgage journey was not a straightforward one and I can honestly say we wouldn't have gotten through it without Bernadine's help. She pointed us in the direction of the right lender for us and guided us through the process with professionalism and empathy. Her knowledge, expertise and kindness are unparalleled. She was always available by message or by phone to answer any questions we had or to assuage any anxieties we had. She dealt with our lender on our behalf and was always prompt in relaying messages from them and in passing on any requests they had for documentation. Bernadine was so helpful too in explaining the different jargon and terminology we weren't used to. She will always have our gratitude for guiding us through the journey and into our dream home.

Your Questions Answered

Think of a financial plan as your GPS in the world of money. Whether you’re saving for a car, planning a big trip, or just wanting to manage your bills better, having a plan helps you get where you want to go without unnecessary detours.

The best time to start was yesterday, and the second-best time is now! It’s never too early or too late to get your finances in order. Starting young gives you a fantastic head start, but making a plan at any age can help improve your financial well-being.

You can definitely start on your own by setting goals and budgeting. However, chatting with one of our financial advisors can be a game-changer for more complex things like investments, retirement planning, or tax strategies. We can offer tailored advice and insights you might not have considered.


Life changes, and so should your financial plan. A good rule of thumb is to give it a once-over annually or after significant life events (think marriage, baby, new job). This way, you can adjust your plan to stay on track with your goals.

A financial plan considers the big picture. It covers income, expenses, savings, investments, debt management, insurance needs, retirement planning, and any other financial goals. Think of it as a comprehensive roadmap for your financial future.
