Luain Tours Ireland was set up in 2018 by the vision and experience of its founder Paul Dooley.

With over 25 years’ experience in the hospitality and tourism business Paul’s vision is to share the magnificent historic, scenic and unique experience that is Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands with overseas visitors to Ireland. Hailing from Athlone (Atha Luain) Paul has gathered a gifted team of tourism professionals to ensure guests receive a true Cead Mile failte and experience a tour of some of Ireland’s most historic and scenic sites whilst encompassing the warmth and humour that is contemporary modern Ireland.

Guests will stay in Ireland’s first purposely built echo friendly Hotel; with his strong hotel management experience Paul’s commitment to exceptional customer service and his never ending commitment to his customers ensure that Luain Tours will always put the guest’s needs first.

Staying at Coosan cottage Echo hotels allows guests to sample Irish food of the highest standard; it affords guests the opportunity to spend time with many of the great characters’ and locals that frequent the establishment on a regular basis. You will meet Authors and Poets, fishermen, builders and teachers, indeed the great thing is you don’t know who will call in for a pint and a chat. The conversation covers all topics and no subject is sacred or discounted, music and song, stories true and made up but never boring.

Our commitment to you and your experience of Ireland is our fundamental mission statement and we always deliver on our promise.
