The Tower closes for the winter on October 15; that evening the Yeats Thoor Ballylee Society host a Poetry Slam in the home of W.B. Yeats. Details can be found at https://yeatsthoorballylee.org/
Both of these iconic locations are likely candidates for an 'unscheduled f-stop' on the drive up from Shannon to Westport on Tuesday.
