Yeats International Summer School

An engaging event that integrates an academic programme of lectures and seminars with poetry readings and cultural events.

63rd Yeats International Summer School

Thursday 28th July to Friday August 5th 2022

We are proud to announce the 63rd International Yeats Summer School –  happening in person, in Sligo

(Covid-19 allowing)

To my father, Sligo was home. Sligo was his initial literary inspiration, and the real importance of the Summer School has been to intermingle its academic activities with the haunting beauty of the Sligo countryside. Only in the ‘Yeats Country’ could such a venture have been considered.

Michael Yeats August 1990
