The WB Yeats Room
William Butler (WB) Yeats was a poet of
international reputation who also served
an Irish Senator for two terms. His
Summer home was in Gort, a short
distance from Doolin. It is Yeats who
wrote “There are no strangers here; Only
friends you haven’t yet met.” Yeats was
the Noble Prize literature winner in 1923.
The WB Yeats Room has a double and
The Oscar Wilde Room
Although Irish born, and from a staunchly
republican family, Wilde wrote very little
about Ireland. His spectacular rise and
public fall, which lead to his early death at
46, would have made a great novel if it
were not so sadly true. His writing is
famous for its sparkling humor and wit;
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us
are looking at the stars”. The Oscar Wilde
room has a double and single bed.
Our Dining Room
Good food, fine clothes ("raiment") and a
comfortable place to sleep have long been
part of Irish culture, as in this proverb:
"May you have food and raiment,
A soft pillow for your head,
May you be forty years in heaven,
Before the devil knows you're dead".
An old Irish proverb
The James Joyce Room
Joyce is one of Ireland’s eight Noble Prize
winners and amongst the most influential
writers of the 20th century. One of his best
known quotes is that “A nation is the
same people living in the same place”.
Although a Dublin Man (“When I die
Dublin will be written in my heart”) his
writing says much about the common
Irish experience. The James Joyce Room
has a double and single bed.
The Kavanagh Room
Patrick Kavanagh was a country man and
his writing is notable for its realistic
portrayal of Irish rural life. He is known for
his fiery views; “A sweeping statement is
the only statement worth listening to”.
And, rather unfairly, that “There is
something wrong with a work of art if it
can be understood by a policeman”. The
Patrick Kavanagh Room has a
double and single bed.
