About
PLEASE NOTE THE QUOTED PRICE IS PER PERSON AND NOT PER VEHICLE. THIS BOOKING IS SUITED TO 2 or 3 TRAVELLERS. Follow in the footsteps of the legendary Irish poet and Nobel Prize winner Seamus Heaney on this private 8-hour tour from Belfast. Discover the work of the great Irish writer as you explore his home county of South Derry, Northern Ireland; visit locations made famous in his poetry; tour the newly opened Seamus Heaney HomePlace museum, and visit Heaney’s resting place in Bellaghy Graveyard. Whether you’re a Seamus Heaney novice or a scholar of his body of work, this tour will be intimate, moving and arresting in equal measure, delivered with the characteristic humour, knowledge and subtlety of a fellow Bellaghy native.

After passing key locations associated with Seamus Heaney and his poetry, arrive at the day’s star attraction – the Seamus Heaney HomePlace. The brand-new multi-million pound attraction is devoted to telling the story of Heaney’s life and works, and features interactive displays, timelines, videos, photographs and personal items. Before heading back to Belfast, you’ll also have chance to visit Heaney’s grave at the Bellaghy Graveyard.
