We were driving from Sligo to Derry and noticed a sign pointing out the grave of WB Yeats. The grave is well kept. Yeats loved Sligo. If you like Yeats' poetry, it's worth a sentimental journey.

A picturesque cemetery and cathedral in Drumcliffe is the final resting place of one of the world's finest poets. The grounds and cathedral is a short hop from Sligo. A must-see for writers, poets, and those who love great poetry.
