Speire - Website& AI Software Developers

// Why are we called “Speire”

We get asked this alot!

There are many facets to the meaning of Spéire. The ethos behind Spéire is an admiration of the Irish way of doing business. We believe Ireland is a great place to do business particularly with the benefit of building close relationships with customers and suppliers alike. We believe that relationships are the most important element of conducting business. 

Spéire is a multifaceted combination of two Irish words and an Irish phrase. “Spéir” is the Irish word for sky and “Eire” means Ireland in our native tongue. Spéire is also part of the phrase “Bun na Spéire” which has a literal translation of beneath the sky, which would be most commonly known as horizon or skyline. 

Spéire believes the sky is the limit in relation to what can be achieved. We celebrate innovation and in particular, the level of creativity among many businesses nationwide.

Spéire’s business process was straightforward and they were a pleasure to deal with at all times. Prior to starting our website rebuild and rebrand, they developed a thorough understanding of our organisation which was clearly visible throughout the project through an impressive level of intuition and creative input relevant to our services. At what was an incredibly busy time for us, it was reassuring to be able to trust in their ability to deliver the project to a high standard that catered for our wide range of services, and service users. Their professionalism and efficiency was remarkable throughout and we would highly recommend.
