The Poetic App – Yeats Country

Hear the stories as you travel around Yeats Country in the highly regarded Donegal App, Ireland’s most comprehensive smart travel guide.
One of the eight tours on the Donegal App is the Best of Donegal Bay tour. Within that tour is the Yeats Country audio guide, which brings the Sligo/Leitrim area to life by playing audio segments about certain places as you pass through them, on your GPS device.

This GPS audio guide brings you to each and every spot that William Butler Yeats is associated with in Counties Sligo and Leitrim. It tells you about his times there, what inspiration he got from the locations and, of course, we have some of his wonderful poetry narrated for you by talented actors and even the great man himself.

It’s been designed as a free two-day driving tour, working on MP3-enabled Garmin and TomTom sat nav devices, but also working on iPhones, iPads, Androids as well as Windows Mobile devices.

Day One takes in Knocknarea, Carrowmore, the Lake Isle of Inishfree and Lough Gill, Parkes Castle and Dromahair.

Day Two brings you to Glencar lake and waterfall, the mythical site where Diarmaid was betrayed under Ben Bulben, Lissadell House, Drumcliffe where Yeats is buried, Rosses Point and Sligo Town itself.

Please familiarize yourself with the numbered route in advance and ensure you read the directions given where it’s suggested you stop. All guides are subject to acceptance of our Licence Agreement. We hope you enjoy them!
