The ultimate treat for Game of Thrones fans is here! Experience Westeros in all its glory as you visit the filming locations of the beloved HBO series on the beautiful North Antrim Coast on this premium tour. But that’s not all. This memorable combo also includes admission to the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in this region, the Giant’s Causeway, as well as the entrance fee required to cross the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. With a 5-star accreditation from The Northern Ireland Tourist Board, you can rest assured that we have only the best of services stored for and an unforgettable tour, to say the least.
The medieval Carrickfergus Castle is up first - one of the grandest and most impressive in all of Westeros. Carrickfergus’ enchanting history, having witness several murders, sieges and executions, has an uncanny connect with the plotline of the iconic series.
Continuing our sojourn, we will visit the Carnlough Village which was used as a backdrop for Braavos in Season 6, the most important of which was the Waif stabbing Arya and the latter escaping by jumping into the freezing waters (near Carnlough Harbour) and swimming away. The eerie yet spellbinding Cushendun Caves is where we will be headed next, the rugged and dark grottoes of which where used to shoot the scene where Melisandre gave birth to the shadow assassin in Season 3.
A dose of thrill awaits you after this as we visit the renowned Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, a spine-chilling one hanging at a staggering 30m above a deep chasm. This is where scenes from Renly Baratheon's war camp were shot and it would only be normal to ask any fan to take a shot at crossing this swinging bridge that makes for a blood-pumping dose of adrenaline. Larrybane, one of the most frequently used Game of Thrones locations, is where we will head to next. From Brienne of Tarth defeating Ser Loras of the Flowers to Littlefinger seeking out Catelyn Stark when she arrives to negotiate with King Renly, Larrybane bears testament to some of the plot-defining scenes in the series.
Taking a short break from the riveting series, we will visit the remarkable Giant's Causeway, a group of polygonal rock formations caused by a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The place borrows its name from a typically Irish legend claiming that the columns were sculpted by a giant named Finn McCool, and makes for a truly breathtaking sight.
Our final tryst with with realm of Game of Thrones takes place at the Dunluce Castle, shot as the House of Greyjoy who was the ruler of the Iron Islands, and the illustrious Dark Hedges which we all remember as Kings Road. But hey, did you that this mysterious stand of trees with their haunting presence is linked to quite an intriguing legend link?
From history to fantasy, the beauty of nature to the ingenuity of mankind - this is a tour that leaves an indelible mark on your memories!
