Thoor Ballylee Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

This 16C fortified house, used by William Butler Yeats for eleven years as a summer residence, is a common symbol in his poetic works, to which an inscription on the wall across the road bears witness. He spent most of the summer months converting the four floors of the tower, before being forced to abandon it in 1928. In 1964, the Kiltartan Society undertook restoration work on the building, together with the adjoining miller's cottage and the mill wheel.
