About Us

Donal Ryan Motor Group is one of the longest established Nissan Dealers in the country. We are a family owned, professionally managed motor dealership with almost 50 years experience.

In the early 1960’s Donal Ryan sen. began selling petrol, tyres, parts and electrical goods in Templederry, Co Tipperary. In 1966 he opened the village filling station and garage and in 1973 the garage sought the Datsun franchise. 

In Dec 82 our Thurles, Co Tipperary branch was opened and the following year a filling station had been added. 

Our body shop had been established in 1985 in Templederry and had been extended in the mid 90’s. This allowed us to give our customers an overall service package according to their needs and requirements. Business was growing rapidly thanks to our dedicated staff and our strong feeling on customer care. 

This encouraged Donal Ryan to open yet another branch in Roscrea, Co Tipperary in 1987. 

Three years later Donal Ryan Car and Van Hire Ltd had been founded which is the only car hire company based in County Tipperary to date, running a fleet of 100 cars and vans. 

In 1993 Donal Ryan’s was awarded the “Nissan Dealership of the Year”. 

During 2000 the site at Limerick Rd, Nenagh, Co Tipperary has been acquired. This purchase resulted that in 2003 our Nenagh, Co Tipperary showroom and garage was opened. With that we won the “National Dealership of the Year” Nissan Award for the 3rd time. In the same year our Thurles branch has been completely refurbished. 

In Autumn 2008 our new state of the art Showroom and Service Department with retail units opened its doors in Roscrea. 

Here at Donal Ryan Motor Group we believe that excellent customer service and aftersales care is the key to our success and tremendous repeat business. We strive to improve our services in every possible way and welcome any helpful suggestions we might receive from our customers.
