The South Shore Irish Heritage Trail is a motor trail, beginning in Weymouth and ending in Plymouth, Massachusetts. It includes stops in Weymouth, Hingham, Hull, Cohasset, Scituate, Marshfield, Duxbury, Kingston, and Plymouth. Member communities will identify their unique site to be part of the trail. Hull, for instance, might choose their town library which was once the summer home of John Boyle O’Reilly, an Irish Patriot, Poet, and Boston Pilot Editor. Cohasset is home to the Brig Saint John Memorial Celtic Cross; Scituate houses a museum celebrating the Irish Mossing industry, and the Plymouth Public Library has the only dedicated Irish collection on the South Shore.

The Trail will extend through nine towns: Weymouth, Hingham, Hull, Cohasset, Scituate, Marshfield, Duxbury, Kingston, and Plymouth. Possible future expansion may include other South Shore communities. Visitors can begin their visit at any point along the trail, follow it from its origin in Weymouth or even reverse the route and begin in Plymouth. Being located between Boston and Cape Cod makes the Trail an ideal beginning or ending to a Cape Cod vacation. Though family friendly and suitable for all ages, the trail can also be enjoyed by solo visitors or tour groups.
