Visit Us

Pilgrims and Visitors have been visiting Drumcliffe for over 1500 years. Many come to see the final resting place of W.B. Yeats, but usually leave with a love for the place and its history.

Admission to the church and churchyard is FREE! You are very welcome to come and be inspired by the peace and tranquillity of this place. We would ask that you are respectful of those attending graves or partaking in services.

We hope to have our information kiosk and audio guides available for Summer 2022. 

The church building has thankfully reopened and we are delighted to be receiving visitors from all over the world once again. 

We do accept tour bookings and we hope to have a new booking system in place in June 2022. If you would like to bring your group and get an audio tour or an inperson guided tour please contact us.

Please note any guides wishing to give their own explanatory talks within the church building must be licenced by the Select Vestry. Applications can be made via our contact us page.
