Irish in New York Walking Tour: St. Patty's Edition
A special tour for St. Patrick’s Weekend explores the former “Little Ireland” district of the Lower East Side, between City Hall and Houston Street, and examines the tremendous role of Irish immigrants in the history of New York City.
This family friendly tour explains why St. Patrick’s Day is more popular here than in Ireland. Stops could include: the founding site of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Al Smith’s home, the Five Points, the first Catholic church in the city, and sites associated with Tammany Hall, Thomas Addis Emmet, and many others.
Tour is 2 hours and no reservations required. To join, arrive at meeting point in front of St. Paul's Chapel at the address below.
