Seamus Heaney HomePlace is an arts and literary centre which opened in 2016 to celebrate the life and work of the Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney.
The Centre features a permanent exhibition about the life and literature of Seamus Heaney, arranged over two floors and filled with personal stories and artefacts, dozens of family photographs, video recordings from friends, neighbours, world leaders, cultural figures, and the voice of the poet himself reading his own words. The exhibition is interactive using the latest touch screen, video and audio technology and includes a recreation of the poet’s Dublin study.
In addition to the exhibition, the centre boasts a 189-seat performing arts space - The Helicon - education and learning spaces, a café and shop.
We've screened independent films from the UK, Ireland and around the world (The Camino Voyage), films for children (Hocus Pocus; The Snail and the Whale), and family films (Where the Wild Things Are).
