This is a purpose-built visitor center to celebrate the life and contribution to Irish literature of Seamus Heaney, who grew up nearby, and who is buried in the churchyard just up the road.
The HomePlace itself is a very simple, open, elegant building, right in the center of town.

We saw this center when we stayed here in July what a guy passionate about his birds some of them which he has reared from chicks stunning collection of Eagles, Owls, Vultures i have ever seen.
For the size and price of the center I wasn't expecting much but both myself and partner were amazed by how many birds were there.
On friday april 28 we had a tour, a tasting of different ales and a meal in the visitor center.
Shepherd and Neame visitor center is not just a brewery tour, it is an educational visit to the brewery with one of the best tour guides I have ever listened to!
