The Yeats Society was founded in Sligo in 1958 in order to commemorate and honour the memory of W.B. Yeats, and to promote appreciation of his poetry and other writings, and an awareness of the other members of this talented family.
 
The Society operates from the Yeats Memorial Building in the very centre of Sligo, overlooking the River Garavogue. The building is the administrative centre of the Society and houses the Yeats Photographic Exhibition , the Yeats Art Gallery, and a Café.
 
The Library provides reading and learning space for students who wish to consult its unique collection of books, and to listen to and view the DVD collection of lectures given at Yeats Summer Schools over more than forty years.
The Society seeks to contribute to the many cultural activities in Sligo, and gladly provides space for book launches, poetry readings, lectures and public meeting.
 
Highlights of the year are undoubtedly the Yeats International Summer School, held each year at the end of July and beginning of August, and the Yeats Winter School, held in January or in early February, but each year sees other specific events, and the office remains busy all year answering queries and keeping in touch with Yeatsian scholars and students from all over the world.
