Worth a look if you are visiting Sligo. Church, round tower, gift shop and Yate's grave at site. Gift/coffee shop very good. Church was closed but interesting to walk round the outside .

We didn't realize when planning this stop on our itinerary that it was where Yeats was buried. The high crosses and roundhouse were very interesting, and finding Yeats was an unexpected bonus.

As someone who has always loved the work of WB Yeats, I had to pay homage by visiting his final resting place. It's a simple grave, almost plain in its simplicity.

Stopped in July 2013. Beautiful stonework exterior and well kept interior woodwork and mural. Stone Cross in cemetery and Yeats Grave should not be missed. Lovely stop.

We're heading to Derry this morning, but made a stop here to see the church, and visit WB Yeats' grave. It's a beautiful church and surrounding graveyard, very peaceful and with lots of history.

When to visit W.B. Yeats' grave and was more impressed with the church than the grave site. The shape of the doors and the door handles are so unique. The church interior is beautiful and peaceful in nature. The eagle podium makes a statement!

Went to this church and cemetery on a large group tour. Yates grave is here. The church is beautiful. From the back of the graveyard you get a great view of the countryside.

Gorgeous little church with tremendous history. The poet WB Yeats is buried in the adjacent graveyard, his grandfather was rector in this chapel. It is possible to purchase printed scrolls of Yeats' poems at the entrance

Beautiful old church with an air of mystery and intrigue. Just next to the grave of W.B.Yeats and well worth a look
