We stopped here on a tour to see the grave of WB Yeats. The burial ground is old and well cared for, as is the beautiful church next to it.

St. Columba's Church of Ireland is a lovely and peaceful retreat. It's cemetery is the final resting place for Irish playwright and poet William Butler Yeats.
