and dramatist who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923. He always acknowledged
the inspiration he drew from his beloved
Sligo landscape across five decades of his writing.

his talented family. Our doors are always
open to those who love the arts and who are keen to continue celebrating the Yeats family and those poets, artists and writers who have drawn inspiration from them.
