Yeats Trail Rosses Point
Special Yeats Experience
Option 1: Relax while in Sligo, take in the sights and join is on this special experience. We start our day at the scenic village of Rosses Point, just 15 mins drive from Sligo town and where William, Jack, Lilly and Lolly spent their childhood. They were fond of this seaside village. We pass by the old house where their uncle used to live and stop by relics and interesting features along a coastal path. Soak up stunning scenery, views of islands and light houses and breathe in fresh Atlantic air. Jack Yeats painted many beautiful scenes from here which we will show you while strolling around. This is an easy walk and very enjoyable. 25pp
