Local tradition holds that Guinness was born at the Read household, where his mother returned to her childhood home, in the tradition of the time, to give birth. Three prospective birth sites have been identified, imost likely at Oughterard 53°16′35″N 6°33′41″W.[4], but also possibly at Read homesteads the adjoining townlands of Boston 53°15′58″N 6°30′21″W.[4], Castlewarden 53°15′56″N 6°32′41″W.[4] and Huttonread53°17′03″N 6°33′41″W.[4] which takes its name form the Read family. , all within Oughterard parish.
