An annual event, the Yeat’s Summer School is among the longest established events in Ireland at more than half a century old, having started in 1958.
The programme each year consists of morning lectures, week-long seminars and drama workshops take place every afternoon. While the Summer School programme is at times quite academic, there is usually at least a lecture or two which anyone will enjoy.
There is plenty to do around Sligo thanks to the Tread Softly Festival which runs alongside and provides a varied programme of cultural events; from theatre, exhibitions, family events and film to guided walks in the Yeats county.
Details for 2017 are not yet confirmed.
