As Irish people, we feel that Gerardine and Eugene are doing a great service to Seamus Heaney's birthplace in co. Derry by promoting his work and that of the Irish poets in the way they have represented the individual bedrooms. The house dates from the late 1800 's and is beautifully maintained yet with modern comforts. We enjoyed a leisurely Ulster breakfast with the best of food and service. The fresh fruit salad was particularly good. Gerardine and Eugene gave us a great welcome and were endlessly helpful.
