Rosses Point is a picturesque coastal village in County Sligo. It was made famous by the poems of WB Yeats and painting of his brother Jack Yeats. In the distance you can see Knocknarea on one side and Ben Bulben on the other. It is a beautiful place and well worth a visit if you are in the area. There is a monument called “Waiting Onshore” dedicated to those lost at sea. There is also the ruins of “The Old Watchhouse” which was used by smugglers in bygone days. Rosses point is one of the most popular places in Ireland for wind surfing as they Atlantic ocean provides some of the best waves in Ireland.
Yeats Hotel and Country Spa as well as Rosses Point golf course are also located here.
