Nora's House  Coole Park  Thoor Ballylee  Cliffs of Moher  The Burren

One of the great literary attractions around Galway is Thoor Ballylee.  The pictures below show the tower from the level  of stone bridge (1),  a view from the top onto that same bridge (2), and two side views of the cottage (3, 4).  My 2003 students line up the bridge and, at the bottom of the page, my 2004 students enjoy the view from the top after exploring the rooms and climbing the steep, winding stairs of Yeats's ivory tower.
