I had never visited Westport prior to Monday, so this walking tour was a fantastic way to learn the layout of the town, learn some history of the town in an entertaining manner, and figure out which pubs to visit for music that evening.

What a joy! I live locally but did not know any of the history that was told to me by the very informative guide. Anyone visiting Westport or living close by should definitely do this tour. The tour guide was friendly, interesting, patient and funny.
