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.

    Excellent throughout. From the online booking, safety briefing, structure, route, pace and content, I can’t think of a single improvement to suggest. We are a nation of storytellers and the stories of our local history were so well chosen - the geography and history was told through its people, including villains and heroes / heroines and everything in between. Declan’s depth of knowledge and wit made it such a good investment of a Saturday morning. I highly recommend this tour.

  • ★★★★★5 Enjoyable and educational afternoon.

    Very pleasant friendly guide, very informative, very professional and great atmosphere on the walk. Personally, we would have welcomed even more information on some of the other "big houses" in the area. However, we thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone. Lovely way to spend a Saturday morning.

    Excellent well-guafed tour. Declan covered all the H & S aspects immediately before commencement. The content was extremely informative and interesting with light humour thrown in. Sensibly paced to suit all and not at all intense. Would certainly recommend to others and look forward to other tours.
