Irish Heritage Trail

Walk in the footsteps of Irish immigrants and their descendants along Boston’s Irish Heritage Trail, comprised of 20 landmarks.  Learn about Irish-American sculptors, poets, veterans and politicians - such as John F. Kennedy and James Michael Curley - as you explore Boston from the Fens to Faneuil Hall. 

Self-guided trail maps can be obtained at the Boston Common Visitor Information Center at 139 Tremont Street, Boston.
