About us
Smyths Toys was established in 1987 in Galway, West of Ireland. We are a rapidly expanding retail company, one of the 200 biggest companies in Ireland and the largest Toy Retailer in Europe with a €1 billion turnover annually. We execute a multi-million-euro annual buying portfolio, use cutting-edge IT systems and employ almost 5,000 people at peak – more... trading times.
We also have big and exciting expansion ambitions. In 2018 we acquired Toys R Us in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, adding a further 90 stores across central European. This brings our total number of stores across Ireland, the UK and Europe to over 200.


With over 150 employees at our Galway Headquarters, we all work together across a relatively flat organisational structure. Right from the get-go, you’ll work around senior, experienced people, up to and including our Managing Directors. We have a great informal work environment.


There’s never been a better or more exciting time to join Smyths Toys.

Written by Sales Assistant (Former Employee) from Childers Road Limerick. on 7 July 2019
My time in Smyths was brief as I was Christmas staff but I found the staff/management very helpful with any of my own queries as regards to the work, great sense of team work within the staff to get the work done.
Pros
Taxi home provided for staff that work the night pack the morning after.
Cons
Can't think of any to be fair.
