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.

    Bought as a Father’s Day present, both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour along a walk we have trekked multiple times. Informative, entertaining, we didn’t see the time pass at all. I will always be amazed that our wee country didn’t always have orange carrots!!! Thank you for a lovely morning.

    Immensely enjoyable afternoon. Tour guide had a deep knowledge of the economic and social history of the Whiteabbey and Whitehouse areas which he presented in an interesting and entertaining manner. I am from the general area and tour guide introduced me to a number of architectural gems which I had hitherto been unaware of. First class tour which I would recommend to anyone.
