Crystal Valet Centre was established in 2006 by Larry and Audrey Craughwell. Audrey, with a rich background in the motor trade, hails from a successful family business that held franchises for Peugeot, Honda, Subaru, Isuzu, and Hyundai over a 30-year period. On the other hand, Larry, rooted in the Electrical Retail Industry, contributed his expertise from his family business.
Larry’s avid interest in F1 and his extensive experience of buying and selling cars surpassed that of an average dealership. Having utilized car valeting services themselves, Larry and Audrey identified certain shortcomings and decided to address them by establishing their own facility. Their first venture was at Corrib Shopping Centre in Galway, followed by The Galway Shopping Centre on The Headford Road. In 2011, Crystal Valet Centre underwent significant expansion, venturing onto the east coast. Presently, Crystal Valet Centres operate throughout North and South Dublin, providing an extended “collect-delivery” service to all parts of Dublin.
Crystal Valet has earned accolades such as managing the Q-park car park at Beaumont Hospital and securing exclusive contracts with prestigious entities like Merrion Fleet and BMW Ireland. The dedication and passion of Crystal Valet Centre extend to continuously seeking new sites, with the hope of bringing their exceptional car valeting services to a location near you in the near future.
