Seamus Heaney HomePlace

Step into Seamus Heaney HomePlace and begin your journey through the life and literature of the poet and Nobel Laureate.

Standing at the heart of the place and a people which so inspired him, HomePlace includes a stunning exhibition which interprets Seamus Heaney’s work.

The entire space over two floors is filled with personal stories and artefacts, dozens of family photographs, video recordings from friends, neighbours and cultural figures, and the voice of the poet himself reading his own words.
