In the heart of Newport’s best known Irish-American neighborhood, visitors will learn about Irish immigration to Newport County from the 1600s to the present and of the many contributions made to our community by individuals of Irish descent. The Museum’s Interpretive Center is operated seasonally and by appointment at other times. Please visit website for schedule and details. Also visit the historic Irish cemetery at Barney and Mt. Vernon Streets, the final resting place for Newport’s earliest Irish immigrants.
