Welcome to Yeats Society Sligo

Celebrating the life and work of WB Yeats and his talented family.

We are delighted to be reopening the Yeats Building on Thursday July 2nd.
Our hours will be 11-3pm, Wednesday to Saturday.
Your safety is our priority and we will be practising social distancing for your protection.
We look forward to welcoming you and telling the ‘untold’ story of WB Yeats and his family.

However, the 61st Yeats International Summer School will not take place as planned.

We are working remotely, so please contact us via info@yeatssociety.com 

Please keep an eye on social media: Twitter – @Yeatssocirl and Facebook – @theyeatssociety for summer events

We look forward to seeing you again and making you welcome in Sligo.

The Yeats Building in Sligo, Ireland, is a hub for literary culture and the arts and in 2019 the Yeats International Summer celebrated its 60th year. Hyde Bridge Gallery supports young and emerging artists providing free access to contemporary visual arts to our visitors.


Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

from The Second Coming
