Welcome to Yeats Society Sligo
Celebrating the life and works of WB Yeats and his talented family.
One hundred years ago, on November 14th, WB Yeats became the first Irish person to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature.
As part of a wider programme to mark the Centenary, Yeats Society Sligo is delighted to host My Numberless Dreams… My Passionate Rhyme, a three-day poetry event taking place in Sligo between November 30th and December 2nd.
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 2024, we will offer the 65th Yeats International Summer School – the longest-running literary summer school in the world.
All of our Tours & Experiences can tailored to individuals, small or large groups.
