Self-Guided Walking Tour Brochures

Newport Irish Walking Tours

Just in time for Spring 2022, we are excited to announce the availability of new self-guided walking tour brochures.

Three tours have been developed, each covering a different neighborhood of “Irish Newport,” and each can be walked in approximately an hour to an hour and a half.

  • Tour #1 covers 14 places of Irish interest in the “Fifth Ward.” The tour starts and ends at our Interpretive Center at 648 Thames Street.
  • Tour #2 starts at 465 Spring Street, “Old Stone House,” now O’Neill-Hayes Funeral Home, and proceeds north on Spring Street, ending at the Barney Street Cemetery.
  • Tour #3 starts at “Hilltop,” now a B&B, at 2 Kay Street, at the intersection of Bellevue Ave. and Touro St. This tour proceeds south along Bellevue Avenue, ending at “Inchiquin” at 719 Bellevue, with 12 points of interest along the way.
