The Thoor Ballylee, a well-preserved 14th century Norman tower which once belonged to the Nobel Prize winner W.B. Yeats, was described by Seamus Heaney as the most important building in Ireland, due to its association with fellow Nobel Laureate winner for literature, Yeats.
It is a hugely popular tourist attraction and the perfect escape while staying at the Claregalway Hotel.
