Deck 10 - Salley Gardens kids area

The “Salley Gardens” kids area is located on Deck 10 between “Cafe Lafayette” and “The Abbey and The Peacock”.  “Down by the Salley Gardens” is a well-known poem and folk song written by Yeats which was first published in 1889 as “An Old Song Re-sung” then again in 1895 as “Down by the Salley Gardens”.  Yeats originally named it “An Old Song Re-sung” as he had actually reconstructed it from a song he remembered an old woman signing in Ballysodare, County Sligo.  The song is also known as “The Maids of Mourne Shore” or “The Mourne Shore”.
