Inisfree, Ireland

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f8/The_Lake_Isle_of_Innisfree_-_geograph.org.uk_-_826444.jpg

I will arise and go now,
And go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there,
Of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there,
A hive for the honey bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there,
For peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning
To where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer,
And noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now,
For always night and day
I hear lake water lapping
With low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway
Or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.

WB Yeats.

although I guess Inisfree isn't a city or town! Confused

What about Inishmore instead?

@Dutchy,
That's true, Dutchy - a magic spot. I still remember the feeling - and I was last there almost 20 yeas ago.

@margo,
Have you been there? I have fond memories of the then only open albergo in town owner (mighty miser of montalcino). When we requested more towels, we got some with more holes. The other albergo was remodelling.

Of course in memory I think there might have been a good reason past avarice.
