Founded by Ray O Brien, a Newbridge native, in 1968, Newbridge Car and Van Rental has grown from that first Bedford van to becoming one of the countries leading motor vehicle hire, rental & leasing service providers. Back then the first rental on the books was Kildare County Council, who still to this day, is a highly valued customer.
After successfully driving right through one of the toughest financial periods the country has ever seen, the company was passed on as a generational hand-down to Rays son Colin, and the new re-branded was born.
Today we cater for individuals, state bodies, mid-size companies and globally recognized corporations, while specializing in all-in-one solutions for SME’s. Having our HQ central to County Kildare and close proximity to the M7 Motorway, at Newhall, Naas, we offer great proximity to a wide reaching variety of customers. We pride ourselves on our experience and hope that we can help our customers to make the best decisions in relation to their fleet requirements now, and long into the future.
In Dec 2015 we were accepted to membership of SIMI, cementing our credentials as a professional and capable organization, working within all guidelines set out by The Society of the Irish Motor Industry.
