John O Driscoll Motor Factors was founded on April 15th 1985 by John and Muriel O Driscoll. John had worked in the motor industry for a number of years and spotted a gap in the market for a new type of Motor Factor one that focused on both the Trade and Retail sectors.

Our premises were carefully selected allowing for ample free parking and easy access, we are conveniently located on the Castletownshend Road, just off the main Baltimore Road roundabout. We have constantly upgraded our premises and shop interior over the years to ensure an enjoyable customer experience.

A Tribute to our Founder John O'Driscoll RIP


On the 11th April 2019 our founder John O’Driscoll Snr sadly passed away. A respected businessman, a loving family man and a proud West Cork man John was held in extremely high regard in both the Motor trade and the surrounding business community.

John was a pioneer in the Motor Factor industry constantly looking at ways to improve be it through new IT infrastructure or new product ranges.

One constant feedback from people over the years is how helpful and customer focused he was and the most common word used to describe John was 'gentleman'. He is sadly missed by his loving family, staff, customers and wide circle of friends.

Our founders John and Muriel O'Driscoll sharing a joke on April 15th 2018, the day of the shop's 33rd birthday.
