Take a Guided Tour of Boston's Irish Heritage Trail This Sunday, April 29 at Boston Common


The Boston Irish Tourism Association is offering a guided walking tour of Boston's Irish Heritage Trail on Sunday, April 29, 2012 at 12:30 p.m., leaving from 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 12 of the 20 stops on the Trail (sites 1-12 on the map).  

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.

Reserve your spot on the tour by filling out the reservation form.  Or, you can also 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.
