See the beautiful landscape that featured in some of WB Yeats’ best known works, including the Lake Isle of Inishfree and The Stolen Child. Sligo was Yeats’s ‘Land of Heart’s Desire as he spent a lot of his childhood summers here, including annual holidays at Rosses Point. This landscape was the inspiration for much of his poetry and ultimately where he was laid to rest.
