  • this is on the Freedom Trail. Its well worth a few moments. A moving tribute to the movement of Irish migrants  more »
  • This is a good place to stop by while you are in Boston, just to put your own life in perspective. It is a little depressing but quite an eye-opener. Not a destination spot but a good one to catch...  more »

  • It's a great historic place along the freedom trail. Tours can be taken from Faneuil Hall for free which go by this memorial.
  • Nice place to sit and rest especially when you visiting Boston and you do lots of walking. I think there is always a bit of shade so you can cool down a little bit. The Irish Famine Memorial is a nice piece of art with I teresting history and a good subject for street photography. The only bad thing we experienced was couple agresive drunk people that yelled at each other and leave a mess.
