Sligo is a city dedicated to the poet W. B. Yeats, who comes from this area and spent much of his time here. What’s more, it was his birthday yesterday and there were some celebration that they now seem to be cleaning up after. We did catch the last couple of minutes of some Irish dancing, pity we didn’t see more of that it was really quite good. We strolled around ...

We completed our first stay in an Irish B&B - very different to the only other B&B we've ever stayed in, the Belvedere in Winton. The Irish B&Bs seem almost like a motel.
