Our Story

J.J. Kavanagh & Sons, established in 1919 is 100% Irish owned and has developed from being one of the first private providers of public transport, into the largest privately owned coach company in Ireland today.

Mission Statement

The J.J. Kavanagh & Sons mission is to provide our customers with the highest levels of service, quality, comfort and safety.

How we work

With ownership spanning over four generations, we have become a internationally recognised and trusted operator. Each year, we add new coaches to our fleet, making it one of the most modern and reliable in the country. Our company is characterised by our total commitment to quality, attention to detail and with customer satisfaction at the forefront of our business ethos.

How we are organised

Over the years we have acquired compatible businesses in centers of population, which were strategically positioned around Ireland & England including:

  • Kenneallys, Waterford
  • Tooheys, Nenagh
  • Devines, Newbridge
  • Princess, Clonmel
  • Mullanys Coaches, London, UK

These acquisitions and other company developments mean that we now have depot facilities available at Urlingford, Nenagh, Waterford and Waford (UK) with backup facilities in Galway, Killarney and Sligo.
