  • The church itself and the graveyard stand out, most people come here to see WB Yeats' grave. It's a very simple grave however, though very well looked after. Good spacious car park.
  • A major tourist attraction. Lots of bus travellers stopping here. It was cool to see Yeats' grave as well as those of his neighbors in the hereafter. Cute little coffee-tea-and-gifts shop.
  • Lovely views and home made food. A good range of food and snacks. Lovely lunches and takes group bookings.
  • It's Yeats' final resting place. I was honored to have been able to visit the grave of my most favorite and beloved poet. The whole Sligo area is absolutely beautiful.
  • Comfortable cafe very good coffee and fantastic homemade apple tart
