Croagh Patrick Cave and West Summit Trek from Westport Area
"In the early 19th century a man who came to be known as ‘Bob of the Reek’ made his home near the summit of the mountain. He spent the next fourteen years assisting pilgrims in their quest to reach the peak. Winter months were spent in the company of friends at the foot of Croagh if one is to believe that the structure known as ‘Bob of the Reek’s Cave’ was his home. This ‘cave’ which is actually more reminiscent of a medieval holy well faces due north and is very high on the mountain. There is also some controversy as to the true identity of Bob of the Reek. Locals in Lecanvey Village on the northwest side claim him as Robert Geraghty

Yeats Memorial Tips (3)

Drumcliff church - Yeats grave

Fondest memory the churchyard in Drumcliff is the site of the final resting place of W B Yeats. No pilgramge to Sligo would be complete without traveling up N15 to visit this churchyard, the 11th century high cross, and the grave of Yeats.

Yeats Statue

Favorite thing Besides being a good base to tour the surrounding area it's a nice walkable city. If you stay in a hotel near Stephen Street you can walk to transportation, the Abbey, the Mall and the Tourist office located on Temple Street and The Lungy. The Yeats statue is located on Stephen Street (where it turns into Low Knox St) and Markievicz Road (is that an Irish name?).
The post office is down Low Knox Street less than a block away. from the statue.

Just pick up a map at the Tourist Office.

Fondest memory They have traditional entertainment which is hard to find in other cities. I found the locals fun and friendly.

the final resting place of W.B.Yeats

Favorite thing This land takes justifiable pride in its writers. Yeats volumes are a glimpse into the soul of the country! In this quiet little churchyard is his understated memorial.
