The ultimate route for fans of the worldwide TV sensation ‘Game of Thrones’, this tour will allow you to discover some of the show’s spectacular filming locations at your own pace. Northern Ireland’s rugged coast lines, historic castles and breathtaking scenery have provided the backdrop for countless memorable scenes in this popular series.
Visit the famous Dark Hedges in Antrim which is featured as the ‘Kings Road’, Carnlough Harbour (Bravos Canal) where Arya Stark was attacked by the Waif, and the distinctive Ballintoy Harbour which has been used as the location for numerous memorable scenes on the ‘Iron Islands’, amongst much more. One of the most exciting of all the Game of Thrones filming locations is Castle Ward, a 16th-century tower that sits on 820 walled acres of gardens and woodland that is the original location of Winterfell.
A trip to the north coast to see some of these enchanting filming locations wouldn’t be complete without a visit to two of Northern Ireland’s most popular tourist destinations – The Giant’s Causeway and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. Suspended almost 100ft above the sea, the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge has linked tiny Carrick Island and the County Antrim mainland for around 350 years, and a walk across this famous bridge will be a thrill that will live long in the memory. The Giant’s Causeway needs little introduction, and a visit to this geological wonderland will be the perfect way to round off a thrilling day along the spectacular north coast.
