Donate to Yeats Society Sligo

The future of Yeats Society Sligo is under threat. We need to raise €100,000 by August to be able to remain open. Please donate to save Yeats’ legacy now.

Welcome to Yeats Society Sligo

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

The Yeats Building in the heart of Sligo is a hub for literary culture and the arts. We have a permanent Yeats exhibition and the Hyde Bridge Gallery on the first floor offers a range of contemporary exhibitions. In 2022, we will offer the 63rd Yeats International Summer School – the longest-running literary summer school in the world.

The Yeats exhibition and tour and The Hyde Bridge Gallery are closed, in response to current health advice regarding Covid-19 (Coronavirus).

Twenty-and-eight the phases of the moon,
The full and the moon’s dark and all the crescents,
Twenty-and-eight, and yet but six-and-twenty
The cradles that a man must needs be rocked in:
For there’s no human life at the full or the dark.
