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.

Declan

      The Whiteabbey tour was well organised. Declan kept us entertained for 3 hours with stops at points of interest that we didn't know existed. Some interesting facts about Belfast and it's surrounding area also included. Despite the wind and rain, an enjoyable afternoon and a new found knowledge of the area

      Who would have known that Whiteabbey had such an interesting history?!! Declan Boyle, of course!!! My wife and, together with our 3 friends, were given a most interesting and enjoyable tour of Whiteabbey by Declan. Up to now Whiteabbey was just one of those places we had driven through, but when you spend 2 1/2 hours walking around Whiteabbey, being guided by Declan and being informed so much about its interesting past, including who has lived there and what has happened there over the years, it is a most enjoyable and interesting afternoon - to be highly recommended!! it is also to be noted that all of the Ticket proceeds are given by Declan to a very worthy cause: The Alzheimers Society.

      I thought the walk was going to be a stroll around the village, but Declan has really done his research! Learnt loads, but he also gave me a few leads I would like to explore further. Highly recommended; and the scenery wasn't too bad either !

      We spent a couple of hours circling Whiteabbey on a nice sunny day where we learnt a lot about the local area and also Northern Irish history. An enjoyable time was had by all and thought Declan was a natural guide and very informative. The tour was also well organised.
