This is a wonderful place to stay. Especially if you are interested in Irish poets and Seamus Heaney. Eugene and Gerardine are most gracious hosts. Eugene is also very interested in genealogy and we had numerous excellent conversations. We plan to return there in the future. The location is right in town and Magherafelt is centrally located to get to almost anywhere in Northern Ireland. There are many antiques and displays of poetry throughout the B&B.
