Lannister, Stark or Targaryen? It doesn't matter which you prefer, with this excursion from Dublin you'll discover the real places in Northern Ireland where Game of Thrones was shot.
Game of Thrones Location Tour Itinerary
Leaving from the centre of Dublin towards Northern Ireland, our first stop will be The Dark Hedges, an avenue of beech trees planted 350 years ago. Since then their boughs have intertwined like grasping fingers, forming a menacing, haunting tunnel. That's why it was chosen by HBO for the scene where Ayra Stark, Gendry and Hot Pie escaped on their way being transported to Castle Black, and it's the perfect location to take some eerie photographs to take home with you.
The world famous Giant's Causeway is our next stop: a sight unique in the world, made up of 40,000 interlocking hexagonal columns of stone, each one springing from the water at a different height. Today it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and has been called the '8th wonder of the world' - a symbol of Ireland and an absolute must see for any visitor to the Emerald Isle.
Next onwards to Ballintoy Harbour, one of the most beautiful harbours in the country, and one which the Game of Thrones crew left almost entirely untouched as it became the fictional location of Pyke Harbour. You might remember it as Theon Greyjoy’s point of return, as well as where Theon was baptised, and the location that they use in season 6 for the scene “the drowning and crowning of the new king”.
Now on our way back to Dublin, we take the coastal route through the Glens of Antrim, offering spectacular views, before heading to Belfast for a flying visit, seeing sights such as the Belfast City Hall, and the Titanic Memorial Gardens, before hitting the road back to Dublin, where we'll arrive between 7:30 and 8:30 pm.
