Gort was the chosen home of the renowned patron of the arts Lady Gregory and the Nobel prize winning poet W. B. Yeats. The town has long been immersed in the development and enhancement of the English language.
It is a traditional market town situated between the scenic hills of the world famous Burren and the boglands of Slieve Aughty mountain. Gort is a fast developing town with a friendly, local community catering to all your needs.
The geographical location of the town is ideal for a visitor to experience the splendour of the west of Ireland and east Galway.
This includes Coole National Park, the unique Burren landscape and the medieval grandeur of Bunratty Castle.
Married to the aesthetic beauty of this part of Ireland is the practicality of its proximity to Shannon International Airport and regular bus services from Dublin Airport to nearby Loughrea.
