Seamus Heaney Home

Encore Experience

The Exhibition at Seamus Heaney HomePlace

Let Seamus Heaney’s distinctive voice guide you through the exhibition as you get to know the people and places that inspired him. Atmospheric video projections and touchscreen displays sit alongside precious items donated by the Heaney family.

Heaney’s ink-stained wooden desk from Anahorish Primary School, a recreation of his study in Dublin and the fax machine that delivered the news when he won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1995 are among the artefacts that transport you to each momentous moment in time.

While much of Seamus Heaney’s writing is inspired by words and ways of life specific to this area, his human relationships and household objects, which we bring to the fore in our exhibition, are familiar to many. This creates a deeply personal visitor experience.
