Declan Boyle - Humour and lots of laughter are guaranteed.
Whiteabbey Walking Tour

I am Declan Boyle, a level 3 accredited tour guide and fully insured for all guiding activities within Northern Ireland and have also completed the “World Host” training programme.

I was born, educated, and have lived and worked in the greater Belfast area for almost 60 years. I have a particular interest and expertise in all things maritime, especially the port, the shipyard and anything that floats!

I come from 3 generations of master mariners and shipping professionals which may explain my interest!!

I am immensely proud of my city and would love to share my passion, personal experiences and history of the city and the surrounding area from an industrial powerhouse through a troubled conflict to hopefully a brighter future.

I can promise you an interesting, informative and fun tour. Humour and lots of laughter are guaranteed.

Walking, Coach, Cycling and Boat tours within the greater Belfast area would be offered however I am flexible and responsive to the needs of my guests.

I also provide voluntary tour guiding to the Belfast International Youth Hostel and Sustrans.

Looking forward to guiding you in the near future.

    The subject is very well researched, and includes with a wealth of interesting facts and tales from the 12 th Century to the present day. Although well known to me as an area, the tour was packed with surprises on the extensive history of Whiteabbey. Old buildings, estates and long passed people all brought back to life through Declan’s detailed and humorous delivery. I would definitely recommend this Walking Tour.

    This was a most informative tour by Declan lasting approximately two and half hours. It began with the infamous killing of Patrica Curran in the fifties and included talks on many of the interesting and famous characters that had connections over two centuries with the Whiteabbey area. The walk was very enjoyable as much of it was along the costal path from Whiteabbey to whitehouse. Declan used a wireless guide system to assist him in his delivery and help maintain social distancing. His delivery was clear,precise and professional. Altogether a very pleasant spring morning

    Took part in Declan’s tour of Whiteabbey and found it extremely interesting and insightful. Although I have passed through Whiteabbey many times I never realised it was so historic. Declan has obviously done a great deal of research and is very knowledgeable about the features, buildings and history of the area as well the interesting characters who have lived here. However he relates all of this in a very amusing way making the tour very enjoyable and entertaining. The walk is mostly on level ground with good views over Belfast Lough and at just over 2 hours was of the right length to be worthwhile but not over tiring. Would thoroughly recommend it.

    Great tour, obviously well researched. I thought the distance and time taken was just right. A lot of very interesting information most of which was new to me even though I know the area. Overall an excellent tour which I would be happy to recommend .
