    A poetic start

    Seamus Heaney HomePlace, County Londonderry

    Sheamus Heaney HomePlace, County Derry Sheamus Heaney HomePlace, County Derry

    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 in the nearby 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 on a road trip that highlights the wonderful fare Lough Neagh has to offer. The Lough Neagh Foodie Tour departs from Belfast and visits spots such as Long Meadow Farm, which makes award-winning cider and juices, and Rosehill House, a lovely thatched guesthouse in County Tyrone.

Entry is by guided tour, and tours last around 45 minutes. Head south from Hillsborough for an overnight night at the 18th century Newforge House, near the village of Magheralin.
