Who are we?

TechStar is an independent, Irish owned  supplier of Technology Repair Services & Products to Our Customers. We specialise in the repair, service & sale of new & refurbished MacBooks, Laptops, Smartphones, Tablets, Gaming Products, Software & IT accessories.

Spotting a Repairs & Service Niche

The Promoters, having worked with some of the larger Nationwide PC Retailers, were convinced that there was an opportunity for a new Service based offering in the Irish market . In 2011, in the middle of a recession, TechStar is born.

Technical Knowledge & Knowhow

Our reputation has always been Our main source of new Business. We provide an effective & efficient IT service & sales advice, backed up by in house Technical Knowledge & knowhow.  In 2016 TechStar opened a purpose built Repair Hub in Limerick, offering an express service for Laptop diagnosis & repair.

Customer Focused

We opened Our first TechStar on Dock Rd., Galway, in 2011, with 2 Technicians offering a service & repair of desktop Computers & Laptops to potential Customers. The business grew rapidly through word of mouth & local advertising.

Our ethos was & still is to be Customer Focused, providing a speedy & reliable service . We are very grateful to Our Customers for the positive referrals & reviews that they pass on to their friends & colleagues.

Providing Peace of Mind

Customers who experienced Our expertise & reliability with repairs started asking Us for guidance & help when wanting to source new product. They wanted Us to purchase new Laptops, MacBooks Mobile devices, Anti-Virus Software & IT accessories for them. We soon realised that they wanted solutions , rather than products, which did the job & gave them Peace Of Mind.

Refurbished MacBooks and Smartphones

Given Our skills in repairs & upgrades, the next logical step for Us was to sell refurbished products. Our “ Good As New “ MacBooks, Laptops, Smartphone, Etc.
