The Game of Thrones Tour with the Dark Hedges Experience takes you deep into GoT country to explore some of its most emblematic locations. Northern Ireland, and especially County Antrim, was the main filming base for all eight seasons of Game of Thrones, giving you the chance to relive your favourite scenes from the series as you visit these familiar sites.
- Discover some of the key locations where GoT was filmed and the places which inspired the series
- Hear the myths and legends that surround the Dark Hedges from your guide
- Visit the Cushendum Caves where Melisandre's shadow baby was born
- Explore the Giant’s Causeway, a landscape formed by volcanic activity over 50 million years ago
- Enjoy the fascinating Dark Hedges experience: beware of the Grey Lady who haunts The King's Road
- Take photos at Carrickfergus Castle and be transported to the medieval-inspired kingdom of Westeros
Stop to take photos of Carrickfergus Castle, an imposing Norman castle, built on the shore of Belfast Lough. It’s easy to imagine lordly power being wielded from here in medieval Ulster. See where Arya Stark was stabbed and fell into the water at Carnlough harbour, better known to GoT fans as Braavos. Tread carefully in the atmospheric Cushendun Caves where Melisandre gave birth to her shadow baby. And visit Dunluce Castle, inspiration and outside shooting location for House Greyjoy’s Pyke Castle. This incredible cliff-top castle is built on a promontory high over the crashing waves of the sea below. You really will believe you’re in Westeros!
Your GoT pilgrimage will also take you to one of the series most memorable settings, the King's Road. In reality, this incredible avenue of gnarled, twisted beech trees is known as the Dark Hedges and you’ll take part in the Dark Hedges Experience, a brilliant new tour in the company of local guides, who will tell you dark, mysterious tales. Beware of the spirit called the Grey Lady who is said to haunt the road. Plus, you’ll get to see the seventh Door of Thrones in nearby Gracehill House, carved from actual Dark Hedges beech.
Head for the legendary Giant’s Causeway, one of Britain’s most unique places, considered by many to be the 8th wonder of the world. This geological marvel features some 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of volcanic activity some 50 million years ago. According to legend, it was built by the Irish giant Finn MacCool to take him to Scotland so he could fight Benandonner, a rival Scottish giant.
