The seaport of Sligo in the northwest of Ireland is somewhere that will always be associated with the poet W. It’s no mystery why Sligo is often called “Yeats Country” as so many local places appear in his works, like the extraordinary Benbulben mountain or Lough Gill lake. His mother was from the town, and Yeats himself was a regular visitor in his childhood.St Columba’s Church of Ireland Church is the final resting place W. Yeats (1865-1939), and you can locate his grave outside.His gravestone is inscribed with the last three lines from his poem “Under Ben Bulben”, reading “Cast a cold eye/ On life, on death/ Horseman pass by”.
This will carry you along green cliff-tops and behind sweeping beaches.
On the south shore you can get out of the car for a wander through Slish Wood, which has patches of old-growth oak forest dating back 250 years.
The wood appears in Yeats’ poem “The Stolen Child”, while Dooney Rock, an abrupt limestone hill on the southwest shore inspired another poem, “The Fiddler of Dooney”.
The cairn is ten metres tall and has never been excavated.
Although this is easily the largest megalithic monument on Knocknarea, it’s by no means the only example, as the east side of the peak is the site of a Stone Age village and there are more, smaller cairns on the slopes.For more information there’s a visitor centre in an old farmhouse next to the site, also providing guided tours of the complex from March to October.
