A poetic start
First off, it’s time to get literary. The Seamus Heaney HomePlace celebrates the life and work of one of the world’s greatest poets, Seamus Heaney, who grew up here in the village of Bellaghy. This is more than just a museum – it’s a fascinating collection of artefacts and memorabilia, donated by Heaney’s family as well as members of the public, which gives a very personal insight into the life of the Nobel Laureate.
If you have more time:
Learn all about the region’s food traditions during a tour that introduces visitors to the wonderful fare Lough Neagh has to offer. The tour departs from Belfast, but has a pick up at Toombrige on prescheduled dates through the season.
