The tables contain examples of some of the cheapest alcohol products for sale in supermarkets (Five major multiples : Aldi, Dunnes Stores, Lidl, Tesco and Spar; 19 July, 2017) during a price survey carried out in Dublin city centre by Alcohol Action Ireland in July 2017.

As well as the retail price, AAI show the price per standard drink (10 grams of alcohol) contained in the product, to illustrate how much it costs for a woman and man to reach their respective recommended low-risk limits if purchasing the cheapest alcohol products for sale in the off-trade.

For adults, the weekly recommended low-risk limits for alcohol consumption are
• Men: 17 standard drinks (168 grams of pure alcohol) or less, spread out over the course of a week, with at least two to three alcohol-free days.
• Women: 11 standard drinks (112 grams of pure alcohol) or less, spread out over the course of a week, with at least two to three alcohol-free
