Kylemore Cars’ motto of “Select+Collect+Drive” couldn’t have better expressed their smooth and efficient process. 

They have a great team of people behind them which is why we think their car buying process runs so easily. From sales all the way to financing, they keep their customers engaged, providing advice when needed.

We really like this aspect of Kylemore Cars and this makes them a great choice to check out especially if you’re buying your very first vehicle.

In terms of their vehicle range, they offer a pretty good amount, including brands like Nissan, Mitsubishi and Toyota. Their price range for their selection of cars is also quite excellent, with a lot of options falling just beneath the € 10,000 mark.

If you’re looking for a car dealership with a good range of affordable vehicles, we highly recommend checking them out.

Although a minor detail, we also greatly appreciate that they provide on their website multiple pictures of the vehicles from different angles. It is of great help for customers who want to check their selection before visiting.

Kylemore Cars also has good finance options. Their annual percentage rates are competitive and the process is relatively quick and simple, where customers can fill up the form on their website.

However, do take note that some of their vehicle options for certain categories are more limited like manual type cars. 


  • Helpful and knowledgeable team
  • Smooth car buying process
  • Good range of cars under € 10,000
  • Competitive APRs


  • Much less options for manual type and hybrid petrol fuel type cars
  • Shorter operating hours on weekends

We recently bought our car a few weeks back. I have to say, we were amazed by the way the whole purchase was managed.

Starting from sales to finance and the final delivery, it was handled so well and the paperwork was dealt with smoothly enough.

I wanted to thank Lee especially for his patience, no pressure and excellent customer service. I am already recommending Kylemore Cars to family and friends. Regards Deirdre -Deirdre Wiley

Kearys Carstore’s categories of available vehicles, will surely satisfy customers looking for more sensible car options.

They have over 800 to choose from with their “No Hassle, No Haggle, No Pressure” approach further easing the buying process. What’s more is they have three car stores available, the other two residing in Limerick and Cork.

As their selection and facilities are quite large, we appreciate that they also have a play area for customers’ kids so that their parents can have an easier time navigating the dealership.

In terms of their car listings, we really like that each car is listed with user friendliness in mind. Customers can simply click either enquiry buttons, the reservation option or the finance calculator according to their needs.

We like this because it makes the process that much more efficient for customers looking at the selection on their website.

The range of their available cars is also quite good especially for the hatchbacks and SUVs. Customers have different options for brands like Ford and Mazda as well as different choices for car features like powerful to low mileage vehicles.

It really gives a great flexibility of options right back in the hands of the customer.

For financing, we like that Kearys Carstore is very flexible in accepting all car trade-ins and that they have no hidden fees.

However, a good amount of their listings are displayed as POA which would require interested customers to apply and go directly to the dealership to learn more about their prices and terms.


  • User friendly online listings
  • Great options for family and hatchback cars
  • No hidden fees
  • Flexible in accepting car trade-ins for financing


  • A lot of POA options
  • Limited car options for luxury and electric car types

Great Team and Great Selection

Was looking around when I found a car, I was really interested in. Myself and my mam were introduced to Michael and when I say he is a terrific sales man.

He was great fun showing us pictures doing Instagram votes with me offered tea and coffee. He really made me feel like there was no pressure. They dropped the car to my house. the quality of my car is brilliant. I’ve since passed my driving test and couldn’t have been happier with the car I chose.

A dealership that has in-store shopping, pickup and delivery, Evra Motors has an established network and line of procedures that makes them a trustworthy choice.

They have over 12 years of experience and we really like the range of passenger vehicles they have to offer. 

Some of the brands they offer include Jaguar as well as Land Rover. Among their selection, they have even older models that cost as cheap as € 4000 to € 5000.

We also appreciate that each listing goes into great detail with each of the features of the vehicles. They even have different star ratings for various categories like environmental, child and adult occupancy.

Another aspect we appreciate from Evra Motors is their assistance in financing your purchase. Their experts can provide great advice on rates for selling your car alongside a no obligation estimate.

If you’re looking for a dealership that’s very engaged with helping you finance your vehicle, we highly recommend them.

What makes Evra Motors unique from other car dealerships is that they do offer car leasing. We like that this option gives customers more flexibility in car ownership and it’s a perfect choice for those who want to own a vehicle only for a specific amount of time.

However, take note that they are closed on Sundays and they only operate for four hours on Saturdays. It does limit customers who are only available on weekends.
