why is the CURLOPT_POST there?
there isn't any data to POST.
Should be a GET.

The code is working, but the URL you quers does not return anything or has a protection against script usage.

If you use:
$ch = curl_init("http://www.example.com/");
$ch = curl_init("http://www.mortgages.ie/mortgages/rates.cfm");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; de; rv:1.8.1.14) Gecko/20080410 SUSE/2.0.0.14-2.3 Firefox/2.0.0.14');
$output = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);
echo $output;


it works
