(Boston) — The Boston Irish Tourism Association (BITA) has issued its annual Travel & Culture Guide, featuring a round-up of festivals, concerts and cultural activities taking place in Massachusetts and the region, as well as travel information to Ireland and Northern Ireland.

You can pick up a free copy of the Travel & Culture Guide at these locations, or read the summer 2014 issue online.

The 28-page color magazine, distributed free at visitor kiosks and cultural venues throughout Massachusetts, gives details on Celtic festivals and concerts taking place from June through September, plus traveler information on hotels and travel agencies, pubs and restaurants, gift shops and retail shops, museums and cultural associations. 

This issue profiles Stephen Johnston, General Manager of the Boston Harbor Hotel, and James Rooney, head of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority.  It details two of Tourism Ireland’s 2014 travel promotions, the Wild Atlantic West in Ireland, and the Causeway Coastal Road tour in Northern Ireland.

BITA was formed in 2000 to promote cultural tourism year round.  It publishes three issues of Travel & Culture Guide in March, June and October.  BITA is the creator of  Boston’s Irish Heritage Trail, which highlights Irish landmarks throughout Boston and around the state.
