COMPANY PROFILE

 

Formerly Dorgans Mini Coaches which was founded in 1961, the business is now run by the second generation of family members: Stephen Millar and Brenda Mackin.  The name of the company was changed at the end of 2004 to accurately reflect our speciality within the industry i.e. small to medium group transport throughout the greater Dublin area.  While the company name changed, the colour of our vehicles, our staff and our reliable service remained the same. Whether a trip is business or pleasure, our uniformed drivers will collect and drive to the destination in style on time any where anytime.

Some words of wisdom from the late Tommy Dorgan R.I.P

In 1961, shortly after the firm's establishment when travelling by mini coach was still in many ways "an adventure", the founder, Tommy Dorgan used to say that the key to the success of a good mini coach hire/rental business was not it's vehicles, but in the drivers who drove them. 

 

Other sayings by Tommy include:

 

A good driver is the best guarantee for the passengers.
