Seamus Heaney Centre

Welcome to The Seamus Heaney Centre

This centre is more than just a building; it is a tribute to one of Ireland’s greatest poets, and a beacon for artistic exploration, celebrating our cultural heritage, drawing as many people as possible into a world of creativity, and inspiring a new generation of poets, writers, and artists

His words captured the essence of the human experience, bringing the landscapes and spirit of Ireland to readers across the globe. This landmark, state-of-the-art venue will provide an inspiring environment for our students, staff, writers, and the wider community to engage in the study and creation of writing.
