The Sperrin Mountains is one of the largest and most unspoilt mountain ranges in Ireland, and this 8-hour guided tour from Belfast gives you an opportunity admire this beautiful natural landscape. Stretching from the shores of Lough Neagh in the south to the Atlantic Ocean in the North, this unique and distinctive landscape is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Sperrins Mountains is steeped in history and culture and is a haven for things to see and do! From Neolithic monuments and restored mills to National Trust properties and forest parks. Not forgetting the heather-clad Sperrin Mountains that provide a sense of space, peace and solitude. Beautiful landscapes and historic towns provide the backdrop to the friendliest welcome, the most convivial company and the best ‘craic’ you will encounter anywhere during your trip.

You will be picked up from your hotel or point of arrival in Belfast. Your tour will begin in the busy market town of Magherafelt, where you can grab a cup of coffee at one of its many unique cafes. Magherafelt itself dates from the Plantation of Ulster in the 1600s and although it has lost all of the features of the original town, it still dominates the landscape for miles around with its hilltop location and the distinctive array of its three church spires.

The Sperrins cover a vast area, so you will use this full-day tour to visit many of its most compelling attractions: Jump to the sound of the ghost at Springhill House; Marvel at megalithic wonder of the Beaghmore Stone Circles; Look out over a vast mountain wilderness; Immerse yourself in the linen tradition at Wellbrook Beetling Mill; Enjoy the splendour of historic Lissan House.

Welcome to the definitive walking tour of Seamus Heaney’s Bellaghy. Having known and worked with Seamus Heaney over many years and having grown up in the same fields and lanes and knowing the same people in his native Bellaghy, your guide Fergal Kearney is uniquely placed to follow in the footsteps of the great man and to share the poet’s home place through his own eyes. This is no stranger’s view of the poet in his place, but that of a generation that has been powerfully influenced by Seamus Heaney and known him personally over many years.

The tour itinerary is the same whether or not you take optional extras.

Your tour starts at the Turf Man Sculpture at Bellaghy Bawn where you will hear the enchanting tale of how this bend in the road changed Seamus Heaney’s life forever. Next will be to the Wolfe Tone’s Gaelic Athletic Association Club where you get to understand the powerful influence of gaelic games on the life of the community and how the local GAA celebrated Seamus Heaney’s winning of the Nobel Prize for literature.

A short walk will take you back to Castle Street where you will learn of the long history of this roadway that dates from 1612 and one of the most tumultous times in Irish history. You will also hear from Seamus Heaney himself through the poetry where he recalls the cattle market here.

Your next stop will be at the sculpture in William Street, the outcome of a Bellaghy Women’s Group project to celebrate the working life of women in the area over the years. You’ll also hear the frightful tale of the strange goings-on in the old shirt factory across the way!

You will then make your way up the ‘stair head’ – one of Bellaghy’s oldest features – on your way down William Street towards St Mary’s Church and graveyard, where Seamus Heaney lies at rest. On the way you’ll hear about some of the characters from Bellaghy’s history and the old rectory, sadly now lying empty on the villages edge.

On arrival at St Mary’s, you will hear the history of this 19th century Roman Catholic Church and how it has played a pivotal role in the long and sometimes troubled history of Bellaghy. You can sign the visitors book in Seamus Heaney’s memory here, before making your way to the poet’s final resting place ‘in the elbow to the stone wall and the oak tree’.

After walking back up through Bellaghy, you will hear the history of St Taoide’s Church of Ireland, the Manor House and Police Station before finishing with a tour of the Seamus Heaney HomePlace (you can alternatively start your trip with a HomePlace visit).
