Yeat's Tavern

Drumcliffe, Co. Sligo

This large, award winning pub in the "new" traditional style is the place to stop after you've soaked up all that Yeatsiana. If it's a bit of grub you want along with your drink there are daily specials such as Irish stew, or Dublin Coddle along with the usual bar menu. Try the garden, weather permitting, it's a refreshing one.

The bane of a small-publican's life is the loudmouthed loquacious customer who, keeping his drink in front of him for hours on end, warrants his presence in the bar by sips taken at fifteen minute intervals. The publican's admonition to such may well be the brutal but effective "Come on, pelt it down ye!" but I admire the approach of the spruce old widow, who, gazing over the rim of her glasses, rebuked the vehement with "Gentlemen, I'm afraid your conversation is curtailing your capacity." Danny Costello, "The Small-Town Pub"
