Good Hotel Guide Review
A rich collection of the late poet-playwright Seamus Heaney’s books and memorabilia is displayed at Eugene and Gerardine Kielt’s elegant town-centre B&B in the heart of Heaney country. Follow the poetry trail in the large garden, or enjoy tours of the area by Eugene Kielt, a Blue Badge guide. Return for the hostess’s home-baked treats at afternoon tea. Each bedroom is named after one of the great Ulster poets, and decorated with pictures, paintings and poems. Breakfast well on fresh fruit salad and an Ulster fry-up in the panelled dining room. The Kielts have a large collection of local genealogical and historical materials; their ancestry-tracing service helps guests to trace their Northern Irish roots. Arts and literary centre Seamus Heaney HomePlace, which opened in September 2016, is an easy ten-minute drive away.
