Guided Tour of Boston's Irish Heritage Trail on Sunday, June 16 at Boston Common


The Boston Irish Tourism Association is offering guided walking tours of the Boston Irish Heritage Trail in celebration of Bloomsday, on Sunday, June 16, 2013, starting at 2:00 p.m. at the Boston Common Visitor Center at 147 Tremont Street in Downtown Boston.

Cost of the tour is $15 per adult, $8 for children ages 6-12, and free for children under five.

The 75 minute walking tour by an experienced tour guide covers over three centuries of Boston Irish history.  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 Collin and the Kennedys - who put their indelible stamp on the history of the city and the nation.

You can purchase tickets the day of the tour at the front desk of the Boston Common Visitors Information Center.

The Irish Heritage Trail was created by BITA in 2000 as a way to celebrate and learn about Boston's unique Irish-American culture and heritage. For more information,  contact irishmassachusetts@comcast.net.
