Description

Come and explore the dark, mystical world of Game of Thrones. The coast of County Antrim is crammed with some of the series' best-loved locations and other brilliant places that served as inspiration for the 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.
