Blink and you'll miss it - that's Drumcliff, Co. Sligo. Only be sure you don't blink before you pull into the carpark at the Church of Ireland and have a look around. You won't be sorry that you did.
Here is the resting place of the iconic William Butler Yeats, though it is widely believed that he is in actual fact, interred somewhere in the North of France. Who knows? Have your photo taken with him anyway.
An interesting point that should be mentioned is that the two beautiful bronze swans which adorn the main door of the church were a gift from the Yeats Society of Western Australia. The Celtic Cross in the churchyard dates back to the eighth century.
Address: Drumcliff, Co. Sligo
