A NEW 12,000sq/ft Volvo showroom and service centre has opened in Sandyford, South Dublin.

Spirit Motor Group is the first dealership in Ireland to launch the new global Volvo Retail Experience facility, which the dealer says focuses on space and design. New and used Volvos will be on show.


There is also a workshop, technology, service and diagnostics area where you can watch your car being taken care of.


Alan Moore, Operations Director of Spirit Motor Group said:

We are delighted to be launching our new Volvo facility after many years working with the brand. We believe this is a fitting home and destination for the exciting new range of Volvo cars. Not only that, but our new workshop facility represents the very latest in Volvo diagnostics and technology and our service customers can now have a fully immersive experience in being able to see this work being done while they wait.

At the official launch party Volvo brand ambassadors were out in force including RTE’s Room to Improve host Dermot Bannon, Leinster Rugby players Isa Nacewa, Josh Van Der Flier and Jordi Murphy and Josepha Madigan TD.
