Steve was born & raised in Westport so he was very knowledgeable about his town. He has a great sense of humor as well. His walking pace was easy to keep up. I thoroughly enjoyed the history of Westport.

Great way to connect with one of Ireland's loveliest towns. I highly recommend this to fellow tourists who enjoy history and want to admire interesting Georgian architecture and learn about local culture. All done with that wonderful and warm Irish charm.
