Located in a distinctive red-and-white townhouse building on the Douglas Hyde Bridge, this engaging little museum, art gallery, and heritage center acts as a kind of focal point for the W. B. Yeats–related attractions in County Sligo. Exhibitions focus on the life and work of the great poet, and the 19th- and 20th-century literary canon of which he was a major part. The center also has an art gallery, featuring work by contemporary artists, many of them Sligo-based, and presents courses, workshops, and lectures during the summer months. It’s also a good place to stop for a bite to eat, at Lily's & Lolly's Café.
