Drumcliff Things to Do
St Columba's church Drumcliffe
This is a lovely little church. While Yeats's grave would be the main attraction for some, the church itself is well worth a visit.
Also on site are the round tower and the Droim Chailbh cross. Both are historical relics.

Founded for Dominicans by Maurice Fitzgerald in 1252,
