Game of Thrones 1-Day Private Tour from Belfast
Embark on a journey with us through Westeros as we explore some of the most memorable GOT film locations on the Game of Thrones 1-Day Private Tour from Belfast.
This tour takes fans on a Northern Ireland experience to enjoy some of the Seven Kingdoms’ most iconic scenery. Guests will witness eerily haunted forests, Fabled castles, and an experience that truly brings the television show to life.
Our tours depart in small groups to ensure guests have a much more personal experience, and you can expect to have a knowledgeable tour guide to answer any GOT questions you might have.
The Game of Thrones 1-Day Private Tour from Belfast begins with a visit to the world-famous Paint Hall Studio, which is the central hub where the productions for the show took place. Aside from being the location of the Iron Throne, the studio was also home to the shipyard featured in the Titanic. Kings Landing was rebuilt for the release of Season 8, and you can see this as one of the most expensive film sets ever constructed.
For the next part of the tour, we’ll venture to the 11km long Downhill Beach to explore Mussenden Temple. The temple stands on top of a cliff, providing fantastic views which made the location perfect for representing the GOT Dragonstone exterior. This location is where Stannis draws the flaming sword, in addition to where we see the old gods burn on the beach.
We continue to witness the location of Ballintoy Bay which represented Lordsport in the Iron Islands. Theon Greyjoy returns to the Port of Pyke and faces problems with his crew. We then visit the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge which sits 30m above sea level, and should you be daring enough you can cross the bridge to arrive on Rocky Island. Assuming you’re brave enough, looking down from Rocky Island, you’ll see the location from GOT Season 2 depicting Renly Baratheon’s camp.
Moving onto Murlough Bay located in a North-Eastern direction we visit the Season 3 location representing the Iron Islands, the same spot we see Yara and Theon Grayjoy riding on horseback. It’s also the same place we see following the Battle of Blackwater Bay when Ser Davos is shipwrecked.
Next up we visit the spot where Melisandre gives birth to the shadow baby in the caves of Cushendun, these caves have experienced extreme weather conditions over 400 million years which made it the ideal location for these scenes.
We’ll explore Northern Ireland’s tallest cliff called Fairhead which claimed fame after appearing in GOT season 7, namely during episode 3; The Queen’s Justice. The cliff face provided the backdrop for most of the episode, capturing the moment Jon first met Daenerys and when Jon is reunited with Tyrion.
Our next exploration takes us to the Dark Hedges, an avenue of beech trees planted in the 18th century. Here fans will recognise the location as representing Kingsroad, in Northern Kings Landing. It was this area that Arya is disguised as a boy, and flees the city with a group of prisoners who are set to join the Night’s Watch.
Witness the spot where Ned Stark beheads the Night’s Watch deserter at the beginning of series one, as we travel to Glenarm. Here you’ll have an opportunity to stop for afternoon tea (at an additional charge), and you might also like to see some of the jewelled artefacts from the series at the Steensons Workshop (own cost).
The final stop of our tour is a visit to Binevenagh mountain, capturing the moment Daenerys and her wounded Dragon land on a clifftop during season 5 episode 10, before Dothraki surrounds them
