Visit to Yeats country would not be complete without a visit to WB Yeats final resting place. Lovely church and location with a nice coffee shop and adjoining art gallery.

Church is nice, but nothing too special. Its located near mountains, the grounds are well tended, the sculptures are unusual. If you are on your way between Sligo and Donegal, i recommend you stop here.

Came here for another pic of Yeats grave but mostly to get a photo of majestic Ben Bulben which was covered in mist. Church is small, lovely, just another church. Worth the quick stop off though.

Lovely, quaint old church, right beside Yates's grave. It has a tranquil air about it that gives the visitor a taste of the inspiration that led to some of the English language's finest poetry.

A very enjoyable experience: understated but classy. Yeats's grave is impressive in it's simplicity and the setting is beautiful

A small but beautiful working church steeped in history as well as the the life of W.B.Yeats. The garden, cemetery and visitor's centre are all worth a visit.
