About the Joe Duffy Group

The Joe Duffy Group has been synonymous with the Motor Industry in Ireland since 1972 when Joe Duffy acquired the first ever BMW Dealership in Ireland. Founded by Joe Duffy and Bill Thompson, Joe Duffy Motors opened its doors with just 4 staff. That same year 180 BMW's were sold in the 26 counties of Ireland, 90 were sold by Joe Duffy.

In 2005, Gavin Hydes became CEO and since then the Joe Duffy Group has grown the Group from one to 23 dealerships. The Group is now one of Ireland's largest and most successful Retail Motor Groups. The Group has a team of 610 employees and represents an extensive franchise portfolio including BMW, MINI, BMW Motorrad, BMWi, Audi, Mazda, Volkswagen, Ford, Land Rover, Jaguar, Volvo, Porsche , Lotus & Kia.

Although our company has gone from strength to strength over the past number of years we maintain the values that the business was founded on. We carry on the proud tradition of a warm, friendly and personalised service. We strive to exceed the expectation of our customers in every facet of our business dealings and our Group continues to be the fastest growing motor retail group with the most extensive range of new and used cars in Ireland.

Our core values are: Teamwork, Best People, Respect, Drive, Ambition & Fun and Enjoyment.

From its humble beginnings in 1972 through to its dynamic visionary facilities of today, the Joe Duffy Group has always put the customer experience to the forefront of its business goals -"its our people that make the difference" has always been our motto.

We are the proud recipients of both a Deloitte Best Managed Companies Platinum award and also a European Business Award Ruben d'Honneur award. In 2022, Joe Duffy Group placed 22nd on The Irish Times list of best employers in Ireland.
