The Northwest Sights

Sligo County Museum

Fodor's Review

The showpiece of this museum is its Yeats Hall, which houses a collection of W. B. Yeats's writings from 1889 to 1936, various editions of his plays and prose, the Nobel prize medal awarded to him in 1923, and the Irish tricolor (flag) that draped his coffin when he was buried at nearby Drumcliff. W. B. Yeats's letters to James Stephens and Oliver St. John Gogarty offer insight into Yeats's obsessive love for Sligo, the landscape of his poetic imagination.
