Boston's Irish Heritage Trail Details 300 years of History in the Capital of Irish America

This St. Patrick's Day, take a walk on the Boston Irish Heritage Trail, a three-mile, self-guided trip through 300 years of Irish-American history and heritage.

The Trail was created by the Boston Irish Tourism Association, a group formed in 2000 to celebrate the city's rich Irish legacy and to promote Irish cultural activities throughout Massachusetts.

A free copy of the Irish Heritage Trail map is available at the visitor information centers on Boston Common, the Prudential Center, the National Park Service on State Street, and at various hotels, pubs and museums in the Boston area. You can also order a copy to be mailed to you for $4.95 for postage/handling.
