Seamus Heaney shows you the heart of rural Northern Ireland more clearly than anyone else – or so they say around Bellaghy where he was born. They don’t just mean his Nobel Prize winning poetry, although that speaks calmly and deeply of his connections with home, family, landscape and people. Seamus Heaney himself demonstrated the values, charm and character of his home to the world.

Local people are proud of their literary giant. The beautiful visitor centre is a loving tribute to  Heaney and the perfect place to discover (or rediscover) the man and his work. Immersing yourself in Seamus Heaney HomePlace and hearing the extraordinary words read by the poet himself, in the area where they were forged, is a truly emotional experience.
