Maxol opens its latest Service Station at Adamstown, Co. Dublin
Maxol, Ireland’s leading family-owned oil company has unveiled its new state-of-the-art service station on the Newcastle Road at Adamstown in Lucan. The new Adamstown Service Station represents an investment of over €1.6 million by Maxol in the full redevelopment of this former independently owned site and creates 20 new jobs in the area.

This is the first development of its type by Maxol in the Republic of Ireland and the revolutionary forecourt boasts a 150 square metre Mace convenience store within a strikingly modern glass fronted and curved roofed building. Being detached from the convenience store gives the Maxol forecourt a distinctive identity, at the centre of which is the Maxwash branded car wash centre and external cash machine. The new Mace store provides an extensive hot and cold food offering including a fresh pizza counter and full delicatessen in addition to a new Bewley’s hot beverages station. The new store contains a new seated area for those looking to enjoy anything from a hot lunch to a cup of coffee.
Outside, the extensive forecourt boasts ample parking for those who wish to spend extended time shopping in the Mace store.
Commenting at the opening Tom Noonan, Chief Executive of The Maxol Group, stated: “Despite the gloomy economic outlook we have remained confident in proceeding with the development of this new addition to our company-owned network. The service station here at Adamstown is the first of its kind in the Republic of Ireland which incorporates our new forecourt building design that will be used in all future Maxol service stations developments around the country".
Noonan also believes that the location of the new service station will help it to prosper and allow it to play an important part in the growth of Adamstown: “This new Maxol Service Station on the Newcastle Road at Adamstown will service the growing population within this new commuter town so we would expect it to perform very well in the future.
Whilst development has slowed in the local area hopefully the investment behind our new service station will generate renewed confidence and contribute to developing a sustainable urban community at Adamstown.”
Speaking about the opening, Willie O’Byrne, Managing Director, Mace said "The Adamstown development represents the next phase in the exclusive forecourt retail partnership between Maxol and Mace – now into its twelfth year. The partnership brings together two great Irish-owned brands and with the opening of Adamstown there are now 44 Mace convenience stores on Maxol company-owned forecourts in addition to the many Maxol Mace brand partnerships within the independent petrol retail sector. The Maxol investment at Adamstown confirms the increasingly significant part forecourt retailing is playing in the convenience sector and puts in place another important facility for both the new town and the wider community of Lucan South.”
