The North West's landscape has been remarkably unaffected by the passage of time and is a striking mixture of coastal beauty, rambling hills, mountains and lovely lakes, all which provide an extremely interesting location for any visitor. If you are interested in poetry, the North West is a must, as it contains Sligo - the birthplace of one of Ireland's greatest poets, W.B. Yeats. You can visit the Yeats building and also visit his grave at Drumcliff churchyard. There is a fabulous choice of top class accommodation and restaurants in the North West, with evening entertainment freely available in a range of high quality venues. The area boasts splendid facilities for golfing, angling, equestrian, hiking, biking, cruising and watersports to name but a few.
