Mussenden Temple overlooks one of the North Coasts most beautiful beaches, Downhill Beach. Stretching for over 11km this beach provides the perfect location for Mussenden Temple.
This Classical round temple was built to be a summer library, while today it stands dramatically on top of a cliff, with views of the Northern Irish and Donegal coast. Both the Mussenden Temple and Downhill Beach were used in Game of Thrones as the location for the Dragonstone exterior.
Remember the burning of the old gods by Melisandre on the beach? Well, that was here. And also where Stannis Baratheon draws a flaming sword from the flames, ‘Lightbringer‘.
