A Sea of Information

The majestic W.B. Yeats follows the Irish Ferries tradition of honouring
great Irish literary figures. Having joined our fleet in 2019, it offers an
enviable cruise-style travel experience.
W.B. Yeats was born in Dublin in 1865, and studied poetry from an early
age. At 24, he met Maud Gonne, an English heiress and Irish nationalist,
and so began a famous affair of obsessive infatuation and unrequited
love. During his career he founded the famous Abbey Theatre with Lady
Gregory and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He died in 1939.
Yeats’ life and career is celebrated throughout this ship, with his work
featured on the décor and downloadable extracts from his catalogue
providing the backdrop to a unique walking tour. Guests are also invited
to enjoy the ‘Lady Gregory Restaurant’ and the ‘Maud Gonne Bar &
Lounge’, as well as ‘The Abbey’ and ‘The Peacock’ cinemas.
