Let’s start with the name – Anam Croí Tours – a combination of two Irish words – Anam (meaning soul) and Croí (heart).
Our values and ethos for AnamCroí Ireland Tours, is simple – we put our heart and soul into bringing you the heart and soul of Ireland. Our name was conceived from that philosophy.
This is also reflected in our logo, comprised of a heart surrounding a Celtic knot – its continuity of meaning carried forward through the centuries from our Celtic ancestors to today.
We are a small 100% Irish based, owned and operated company – passionate about bringing the best of Ireland to you through our small-group scheduled and private Ireland tours. With a maximum of 14 guests on our scheduled tours of 6 day Sojourn of South West Ireland or 7 day Northern Ireland and the Best of the West, and 12 on our 7 day Ireland Wellness Tour, our personal attention to detail is guaranteed. We also specialise in Private Customised Tours, on which we can take up to 16 people. Why not reach out to us to find out more?

An Irish Tour Company’s Beginnings
Founder and owner, Larry Coady, was previously general manager of Vagabond Tours of Ireland. He has vast experience in all aspects of Ireland tourism, creating tours, guiding, customer service, supplier management, logistics and transport. A qualified transport manager and holder of a Professional Certificate in Sustainable Tourism, he studied tourism management, and has a honours degree in Irish law.
Clare is the one who keeps the books (and Larry) balanced. When not doing that, her passion is education in the healthcare sphere. A registered nurse, she holds an honours degree in psychology (which helps to keep her balanced when dealing with Larry) and a Higher Diploma in Education. Oh, she also has tons of experience in retail management.
When not creating and delvering top class tours of Ireland, this pair will normally be found hiking somewhere in the hills of Ireland.
We hope these excerpts give you a grasp of our pledge to our customers, outlined in our philosophy of putting our heart and soul into helping you discover the heart and soul of Ireland.
