Good Hotel Guide Review

Standing in deepest Seamus Heaney country, Eugene and Gerardine Kielt’s elegant B&B is a haven for fans of the late Nobel prize-winning poet and playwright. Behind the villa’s bright red door, guests find an intriguing collection of his books and memorabilia; in the grounds, a trail reveals his works’ place alongside plants. Eugene Kielt, a Blue Badge guide, gives award-winning literary tours of the area. Bedrooms, each named after a great Ulster poet, including Longley and Kavanagh, display framed works and portraits of the writers. Breakfast (fresh scones, fruit salad, a full Ulster) is served in the wood-panelled dining room, beneath Heaney poems on scrolls. A large collection of genealogical and historic materials can help guests trace their Northern Irish heritage.
