Visiting Artists

Since opening in 2016 The Helicon has welcomed some of the very best local and international talent, from literature, music, theatre and more.

Milena Simovic
"I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding hospitality and care I received from literally everyone in the past several days. These things are priceless, particularly to someone who travels so much, every detail looked after makes the world of difference. Thank you. I am deeply honoured that I have been a small part of such an incredible event. It is humbling the say the least, and I miss all of it already."

Maria McManus
“HomePlace staff and the place itself are top drawer and one of the most professional places I’ve gotten to work with”

Red Grape Music
"I want to say a huge THANK YOU to you for such a lovely evening at Seamus Heaney HomePlace last week.  It was a real pleasure to do the show and everything went so smoothly it can only be as a result of your superb organisation and professionalism." 

Tara Gandhi Bhattacharjee
"Seamus Heaney HomePlace is like an Ashram. It also has the sanctity of a temple of prayer, meditation and inspiration."
