The 5 Best Car Parts Stores in Galway

We drive our cars so often that we sometimes overlook their daily maintenance. It can mean a world of a difference to have your car checked out for faulty and worn out parts.

In the following article, we checked out some of the best car parts stores in Galway to help owners in the area know the available resources.

How much do car parts cost?

There are three primary categories of car parts to choose from, OEM, aftermarket and used. OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer which is where car parts that exactly match your car’s model come from.

OEM is the most expensive out of the three but has the highest quality. Aftermarket and used car parts offer a cheaper alternative that owners can even use to modify the car’s interior and performance.

Many places offer car servicing packages with basic packages targeting interim maintenance such as oil change, and advanced packages providing full inspections.

We’ve compiled some of the average estimated prices of car parts in Galway for your reference in the table below:

Car PartPrice
Car Bulbs€ 2 to € 9
Car Battery€ 110 to € 250
Wipers€ 10 to € 25
Suspension Fluid€ 14 to € 29
Air Filter€ 35 to € 48

Halfords casts a wide net in terms of the services and products they offer, having a great selection both for motorists and cyclists.

In terms of its motoring products, we found there to be a relatively good selection for smaller parts. They have car batteries, air conditioning tools, spark plugs, bulbs and accessories to name a few.

It’s a great one-stop-shop if you’re also looking for tools and tool kits for your car. Their return policy is very flexible allowing for returns within 28 days of purchase, in-store as well as by post and courier.

They have great complementary services that focus on car maintenance. From installing wiper blades, to bulbs, and even air conditioning, we were very impressed by the range as well as how affordable these services are.

They do also offer a 5 and a 10-point car check, which you can conveniently look at the availability online. You can see on their site the specifics of their checklist which includes condition examinations and top ups depending on the package.

Additional services available at Halfords include a great range for bike parts as well as bike maintenance. If you’re looking to buy and install any roof bars, boxes, bike and car related products, Halfords is the perfect place for drivers and cyclists alike.

We do recommend checking the site or calling ahead to see which car parts they have available per car part type, as their selection is limited to less complex car parts.

Euro Car Parts probably carries the widest selection of auto parts, accommodating any customer looking for quality products.

We appreciate that they offer different formats for shopping namely delivery, click-and-collect, and ordering in-store. It’s great if you’re looking for a convenient service you can access from home or a more hands-on chat with one of their trained staff.

Their selection of car parts online carries brands such as Honda, Audi, Mitsubishi, Seat, and Skoda to name a few. We like how easy it is to navigate between specific car models and then input the corresponding number plate. 

We also found it very convenient that they carry other accessories and cart tools for an all-in-one experience. From mechanic’s tools to body shop tools, it would be a great place for first-time car owners to pick up all that they need.

Uniquely, they also have a dedicated section to performance parts for owners looking to upgrade their car. Examples of items they carry include performance clutches and suspension kits.

In terms of their refund policy, they are very flexible, offering a window of 60 days for online purchases and an arrangement of a free pick-up service for faulty items.

There are, however, specific conditions and limitations for their standard deliveries, depending on the item size and delivery area. Make sure to look over the information table regarding this on their website.

No fuss, no question of saying “we close sharp” on the button. Waited till we flew over from Clifden as shop closed at 3pm that Saturday. Highly recommended and exemplary service from Euro Car Parts. Would use again without question. – Barry Murphy

If you’re looking for a substantial supply of used car parts, we recommend checking Headford Road Car Dismantlers. Established in 1987, they source their vehicles not just from the nearby area, but from everywhere around Ireland.

This makes the parts and car models they carry very diverse, with around 1500 on-sitevehicles and new stocks arriving daily. They make sure to collect, clean and evaluate parts that they can use for sale. 

We like that their process allows for a smooth update of inventory on their website. They carry used parts from air conditioning compressors, ABS valves, alternators, door lock parts and power steering motors to name a few.

Moreover, their latest vehicles up for dismantling are listed conveniently at the bottom of their website.

These parts correspond to a variety of brands like Citroen, Ford, Mercedes, Renault, Opel at affordable prices. If you’re looking to save on cost for buying car parts, Headford is a good place to check out.

As they are a car dismantling site, they offer distinct services you won’t find at other auto parts stores. If you’re also looking to sell your car as well, they do have a relatively straightforward process.

Be aware, however, that stocks of certain car parts from specific brands are highly variable, so it would be best to check the site or call ahead.

Car Parts Warehouse is a great store that provides not only a great selection of auto parts but a pleasant customer service experience.

They carry air filters, alternators, washes and waxes, motor oil, batteries, Gorilla adhesives, wipers, pads, seat covers and bulbs amongst many others. With brands like Castrol, Delphi, Bosch, Denso and Monroe, we were very impressed by the quality of their options.

We also appreciate that they attend to requests for auto parts they don’t have in-store, so customers can ask for items beyond their selection. 

They do offer monthly deals alongside specific products and parts such as free kits and additional items. This is a great place to visit if you’re looking for affordable deals and sets.

What is probably the greatest strength of the store however, is it’s efficient and helpful customer service. They’ve developed a system for call monitoring which has reduced waiting times and queues significantly in the store.

Customer feedback for this store has been overwhelming in terms of the positive turnover of purchase experience. They are able to accommodate car problems from bulb replacements to battery changes quickly and efficiently.

It’s a great choice especially if you’re needing urgent service or an expert opinion on auto parts.

The only limitation we recognize is that all of their selection is limited to in-store purchases, so you would need to visit them in order to see the products they have.


  • Knowledgeable and friendly staff
  • Short waiting times
  • Quality selection of products
  • Offers monthly deals and sets


  • Closed on Sunday
  • Limited to in-store purchases

From purchasing to servicing to finding car parts, Windsor is a great option for those looking for a top to bottom car store.

Windsor is a leading approved dealer for Renault, Nissan, Mazda, Dacia, Citroen, Opel, and Peugeot. Consequently, they offer quality and authentic car parts for these brands.

We like that they provide an option for in-store pickup or delivery, which is applicable nationwide and usually takes two working days to fulfill. For car parts that they do not have in stock, Windsor can arrange for an order to be placed.

We also like that this is fully supported by their knowledgeable team in-store, so if you do choose to go there directly they can answer any questions you may have.

Aside from this, they offer aftercare services that perfectly complement any auto part you have purchased. They have three main types of servicing in which they examine your car and replace or change any part that needs attention.

It would be best to check their website for information on their packages as some packages include different checks and updates. They also conveniently have a Pre NCT health check for newer vehicles

We like that you can go directly from buying the car parts to having your car fully serviced.

It is important to note that the car parts they have are limited to the brands carried. They can be pricier especially since most are new and authentic parts.
