Rosses Point Pointe na Rosann

The county of Sligo is also often called Yeats country, referring to William Butler Yeats, a famous Irish writer. Rosses Point, where Yeats used to spend his summer holidays, could therefore appropriately be called the heart of Yeats country.
And still today, visitors enjoy themselves walking down the beautiful promenade or the sandy beach, with a perfect view of Ben Bulben in the background, like Yeats himself did once upon a time.
Only the memorial “Waiting on shore” has not yet been here in the days of Yeats, but is still worth a visit.


Rosses Point is situated around 8 kilometres west of Sligo on the Wild Atlantic Way.
