Discover W.B.Yeats Country Day Tour

Ireland is the land of saints and scholars. A nation that holds artists in particular veneration. We have four Nobel Prize winners in literature and hundreds of other gifted authors. At the head of this pantheon of greats, head and shoulders above any contemporary sits William Butler Yeats. If any one figure could be said to have recreated a nation, it would be Yeats. The very images most people think of when they imagine Ireland, originated in the pages of his poetry.<br><br>On this tour we will journey from noisy Dublin to the spiritual home of Yeats, Sligo. We will visit his childhood home at Lisadell House, the Lake Isle of Innisfree, the countryside around Benbulben and his grave at Drumcliffe cemetery. Along the way we will read the poetry of the bard together, enjoy a lunch in Sligo town and watch a documentary about his life. Once we return to Dublin, we will finish the day by the Abbey Theatre, our national theatre, founded by Yeats in 1904.

Beautiful pub and beer garden but very strange experience of totally being ignored at the bar despite only another 3 people (men) sitting there. Bar man refused to look at me while it was extremely obvious I was waiting to be served at this small bar area and continued to talk to the men at the bar to an embarrassing point where I had no option but to leave. Felt like it was a men only bar won't be back any time soon

Lovely pub, what stands out a mile about this place is the lovely beer garden on the Shannon. Literally the only place to be on a sunny day in Carrick. The bar itself is nice, plenty of seating and well lit up with the big windows at the back leaving a nice view of the Shannon. The only downside like nearly every pub in Carrick, you’ll get stags and hen parties in abundance and not the classiest in a lot of cases, really the only downside to drinking in Carrick, for some reason tends to attract the lowest of the low in stag parties. The staff were great in the pub and dealt with what I’m sure they’ll tell you is the usually guy on a stag wanting to be the centre or attention, was throwing pint glasses into the river and just being a general idiot. All that aside it’s a great pub, one of the best in Carrick. Worth a visit if you’re in town.

myself and my new husband chose this venue for a bbq the day after our wedding for it's beautiful surroundings. Unfortunately we were let down. We organised a bbq with the proprietor 6 months before our chosen date. On the day our guests expecting a bbq as promised received finger food. We were hit with a bill for €1400 - which didn't feed half of our guests. When we questioned this we were horrified with the attitude by the proprietor(im assuming) this put a bad taste in our mouth and damped what was a great weekend. The caterer hired contacted us as she heard we were unhappy - her fee was €300 so we were scammed. I only advise future brides/grooms to avoid this as i wish i had of known. All this aside the other staff worked hard and were pleasant. It is a pity that the front man to this opperation has no tact or professionalism and all trust and confidence was lost after our experience.
