Gort, is a market town situated half way between Galway and Ennis, and ideally located to explore the Burren and South Galway/North Clare. Nearby are the famous Coole Park (Nature Reserve and Heritage Centre) formally the home of Lady Gregory and cradleof the Irish literary revival; Thoor Ballylee (Formally the home of the poet W B Yeats ) and a small museum at Kiltartan Old School, the Gregory Museum. The town of Kinvara is only 15 km away, with its sea-angling and the Burren is easily accessible to the west. The town of Gort has been designated a heritage town, and its street-plan and shop-fronts (some of the finest examples of traditional shop-fronts in Ireland) are the reason for this.
