Visit Sligo County Museum


Discover the rich history of our county and people. Sligo County Museum houses a range of collections including artefacts from stone age life right up to a firkin of 100-year-old bog butter.

As the home town of W.B. Yeats, you won’t be surprised to learn that Sligo County Museum houses a permanent exhibition dedicated room to his talents. The Yeats Room displays letters, manuscripts and photographs of the well-known poet and a replica of his Nobel Prize medal and a complete collection of his poems. If you’re a fan of his work, the museum is well worth the visit.

Sligo County Museum also contains some interesting artefacts owned by Countess Markievicz. There are also some remarkable paintings from famous Irish painters including Jack B Yeats (brother to W.B. Yeats), George Russel and Sean Keating.

Admission is free and the museum is open from Tuesday until Saturday from 10.00am until 4.30pm. It is easily accessible from Clayton Hotel Sligo, just a short 5-minute drive or pleasant 20 minute stroll into the heart of Sligo Town.

If you’re interested in history and the arts, then Sligo County Museum is a must visit for anyone visiting the charming county of Sligo.
