Teach Bán Nua is an artist run gallery and art centre located beside St Columba's churchyard, burial place of the poet W.B Yeats, in County Sligo. The gallery is set against the backdrop of Benbulben mountain.

Teach Bán art gallery is run and curated by artist Tom O’Rourke. The gallery exhibits the work of established artists and places special emphasis on cultivating emerging artists of any age. Painting, drawing, print making and sculpture form the basis of the various exhibitions in the gallery.

Teach Bán is situated near an ancient monastic site rich in history beside St Columba’s Church, Drumcliffe, County Sligo in the west of Ireland.

The gallery building is a modern extension to an old stone cottage and maintains the same exterior roof height. The pitched interior ceiling gives greater height and facilitates the northern light which streams through the large windows and glass doors at the rear of the building. Through these can be seen Ben Bulben mountain and the trees which frame the burial place of WB Yeats, the internationally famous Irish poet.
