History
Our History

Callinan Coaches was established in 1995 by Tommy Callinan. Tommy began driving coaches in 1988. In 1995 Tommy saw an opening in the market and began his own Coach Company, Callinan Coaches. The first job he took on was transporting passenger to the Aran Ferries in Rosaaveal. Since then, the fleet has grown in order to facilitate the volume of work we have taken on from Tours around Ireland and the United Kingdom to Ski Trips to the Alps.

Over the years we have developed great relationships with our customers, we prioritise evolving to accommodate customers’ needs and having an understanding of what they want. Today our fleet currently contains, over 80 luxurious, modern, state of the art coaches that are equipped with comfortable reclining seats, foot rests, overhead locker storage, restrooms, individual reading lights and air vents. Our coaches are fitted with Wi-Fi, DVD players, USB ports, 220V sockets and an on-board refrigerator. Our staff has also grown to over 180 staff members, in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Callinan Coaches is a family run business with many family members involved in the day to day operations of the business. Although the company has continued to grow larger and larger, each year Tommy can still be seen behind the wheel as well as in the boardroom overseeing various components of the business, ensuring the business is running efficiently. Tommy is the driving force of the company, with the passion portrayed by loyal, reliable staff and himself has led to Callinan Coaches becoming an award winning company throughout the years.

Callinan Coaches is committed to help the local communities. Callinan Coaches has and continued to sponsor local clubs, events and fundraisers on an annual basis. Tommy feels it is an important part of the business to make donations to allow Callinan Coaches to help and aid the local community growth.
