Game of Thrones Doors & Food Tour

Eat your way through Westeros with the Game of Thrones Doors & Food Tour. Experience a different type of Game of Thrones tour with this culinary excursion around Northern Ireland.

In January 2016, Storm Gertrude hit the Northern Irish coast. As the winds and rain ravaged the area, the storm managed to knock down two beech trees along Antrim’s Dark Hedges. Planted in the 18th century, these trees provided the setting for the King’s Road, an iconic location from GOT. It was along here that Arya Stark, dressed as a boy, escaped from King’s Landing.

Full description

However, the people of Northern Ireland made the best of a bad situation, and from the demise came a rebirth. Ten distinct doors were made from the wood of the fallen trees. Each with a unique carved design, representing an episode from season 6 of Game of Thrones. The doors were then distributed throughout Northern Ireland. They now reside in locations connected with the TV series.

The Game of Thrones Doors & Food Tour brings you to see four of these one-of-a-kind doors.

And along the way, you’ll get to sample some of the finest local produce Northern Ireland has to offer too.

Your first stop will be Owens Bar in Limavaday. This traditional pub is situated beside Downhill Beach, the filming location for Dragonstone Beach. The door here represents the episode ‘The Door’, in which Bran Stark confronts the White Walkers. Emblazoned upon it are the Stark’s direwolf sigil and the stoic face of the Night King. At Owens Bar, you find some locally produced breads and oils.

Next, you will visit the Fullerton Arms near Ballintoy Harbour. The harbour features as the setting for Pyke, one of the Iron Islands, and the home of Theon Greyjoy. Here you can indulge in some homemade seafood chowder, the ingredients of which come fresh from the local fishermen. Here you will also find a door depicting Drogon – one of Daenerys’ dragons.

Stop number three will bring you to Gracehill House, located next to the Dark Hedges. The door here depicts the Stark sigil accompanied by the Three-Eyed Raven. This represents Bran Stark’s journey through the saga. As for local cuisine, you can tuck into a hearty meat platter.

Lastly, you will drop into Mary McBrides Bar in Cushendon, for a feast of cheese, chutney, and some locally brewed Rathlin Red Ale. The Cushendon Caves served as the backdrop for the iconic scene in which Melisandre birthed the Shadow Baby. The engraving on the door here shows scenes from Braavos, and represents Arya Stark’s experiences with the guild of assassins.

The Game of Thrones Doors & Food Tour offers an alternative and unique GOT experience!

The next stop on our journey is Gracehill House located beside the now famous Dark Hedges, one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland after being shown in Season 2 Episode 1 as the Kingsroad. Gracehill is home to door 7 featuring the Three-Eyed Raven permeate and the Stark Direwolf sigil.

In the bottom section you might spot a beech tree leaf hidden inside a crown – perhaps referencing the specific trees from the Kingsroad itself, located mere meters from door 7’s final resting place. This stunning location will provide a hearty meaty platter to satisfy any remaining hunger pangs.

Our last stop of the night is at Mary McBrides in Cushendun. The caves at Cushendun were formed over a period of 400 million of years and are a product of extreme weather conditions. They can be found just beyond this beautiful coastal village next to the Cave House and used in Season 2 Episode 4 as a cove in the Stormlands.

Here Door 8 is on view featuring the events playing out in Braavos. In the center sits the Faceless Man coin that first brought Arya to the free city. Below that rests Needle representing Arya wielding it in her final deadly confrontation with the Waif and the guild of assassins.

On this final stop guest can relax and top off the many culinary treats they have sampled with a variety of local Cheese, Chutney and a glass of Rathlin Red Ale.
