Heaney Country

Heaney Homeplace

This is a special place. A moving place. An inspirational place.

Seamus Heaney HomePlace takes you on an inspiring journey through the life and work of one of Ireland’s greatest writers.

Situated between Heaney’s two childhood homes at Mossbawn and The Wood, and only a few hundred yards from St Mary’s Church, Bellaghy, which he chose as his final resting place, HomePlace is at the heart of the area that inspired so much of the poet’s work.

It’s a place where you can sense the warmth of Heaney’s relationships with local people and landscapes; where you can immerse yourself in the Nobel Laureate’s literature.
