How lovely it was to find this beautiful church nestled up in the hilly countryside and to discover it was the grave site of Yeats. What a beautiful place.

Who cares whether it is really Yeats or not in there? What matters is the symbolism. Horsemen of the world, pass by!

It's wonderful that something like this has not been commercialised. Just pull off the main road and walk to the main entrance of the church. Yeats' resting place is just a little further past the main walkway. A lovely area just out of Sligo. A shout out to the Western Australian doors on the church with its black swans 🇦🇺

After visiting the church, which was stunning, there was a feeling that you were in a special place standing at WB Yeats gravesite.

The town is lovely and the graveyard very humble and non-descript. It's wonderful to walk around and take photos. The church is small and the grave yard intimate. The tea and gift shop is lovely as well.

Even in dark November the location has an air of quiet serenity - an opportunity for quiet reflection - the church was closed (Monday afternoon) so we had a brief walk in the graveyard and stopped for a moment at Yeats' resting place - the small comfy shop serves up tasty soups and some neat souvenirs. It would be too... More

A beautiful setting for the final resting place of this great man. The setting is very much in the countryside, the church not huge but very nice. The door handles in the shape of swans were very different and ornate, something to look out for. There is a plaque on the right of the church entrance that shows you the... More

Lovely church and cemetery and gives Yeat's his view from his final resting place. Also the swan door handles for the front door were donated from Perth, Australia which gave us more of a connection.

Would recommend this stop mainly for the beautiful scenery that beckons behind the church and graveyard - Benbulbin being the hidden gem in the distance. Was a lovely, sunny day on our visit, which yielded so many amazing pictures.

If you happen to be in the area, feel free to stop, but not overwhelming. Probably good for the Yeats fans, but wouldn't go out of my way to see it.
