The Carphone Warehouse PLC was founded in 1989 by Charles Dunstone with savings of £6,000 and an idea of creating the future of mobile communications. A true entrepreneur, Charles realised the potential in the mobile communications industry and set about creating a unique market position by expanding the range of products and services to meet the demands of a changing market.
Growing from humble beginnings Carphone Warehouse's aim from the start has been to offer our customers simple, impartial advice while also offering outstanding value. Carphone Warehouse is now the largest independent retailer of mobile services, including mobile phones, tablets, home/mobile broadband and TV in Ireland and across Europe.
In Ireland, the first Carphone Warehouse began trading on Dublin’s Grafton Street, since then over 90 stores have opened nationwide. Carphone boasts a presence in every major town and city and are proud to employ over 500 people in Ireland. The Irish business is led by MD Peter Scott.
