Boston Irish Tourism group releases winter Travel & Culture Guide

(Boston) - The Boston Irish Tourism Association (BITA) released its Travel & Culture Guide (2016-17 winter issue) of cultural activities in Massachusetts and Ireland.

The 28-page color magazine details upcoming holiday concerts, dances and theatre in Massachusetts and the New England region from November 2016 to March 2017. It lists selected Irish pubs, gift shops and cultural groups in the Bay State plus hotels and travel agencies for visitors from out-of-town.

Among the features in this issue are profiles of Ray Flynn, who was honored recently by the City of Boston for his distinguished career, and Séamus Connolly, whose much awaited collection of Irish music was posted at Boston College.

Also featured: details on celebrating Christmas and New Year’s in Dublin, Ireland, and a preview of new direct air routes from New England to Ireland in 2017.

The Guide is available for free at tourism centers across the state and at museums, hotels and cultural venues. See distribution centers.

The Boston Irish Tourism Association was formed in 2000 to promote cultural tourism year round. It publishes three travel and culture guides each year, and created an Irish Heritage Trail highlighting Irish landmarks in Boston and around the state.
