The Boston Irish Tourism Association is offering guided tours of the Boston Irish Heritage Trail.

The 75-90 minute walk led by an experienced tour guide takes you on 300 fascinating years of Boston’s unique Irish history and heritage.  

You’ll discover the Irish role in the Revolutionary War, learn about the 19th century Famine generation and the Irish part in the Civil War.  And you’ll discover famous and infamous politicians - from Curley and White to Collins and the Kennedys - who put their indelible stamp on the history of the city and the nation.
