Game of Thrones Dragon Tour
See the sights of the Seven Kingdoms on the Game of Thrones Dragon Tour. Visit the iconic regions from throughout Westeros.
In comparison to other countries around the world, Ireland is by no means a big place. However, when it comes to its relationship with Game of Thrones, this small island has been pivotal in creating a large fantasy world. From the moment the TV series arrived on our screens in 2011, Northern Ireland has been a prominent feature. Its lush landscapes and coastal views have featured as the backdrops for many regions in the Seven Kingdoms.
Now you have the chance to see them for yourself!
The Game of Thrones Dragon Tour is the perfect opportunity to get up-close and personal with the scenery from the TV series. This fully guided coach trip features many of the iconic filming locations from all 8 seasons. It is a fully immersive experience too, providing you with costumes and props so that you can recreate your favourite scenes.
Starting in the morning in Belfast City Centre, you will first travel out to the countryside, stopping at the Dark Hedges. This rural stretch of road, with its distinctive canopy of trees, features on Game of Thrones as the Kings Road. This is the path that Arya Stark took when she was fleeing from King’s Landing.
Next, you’ll travel out to the coast. First, you’ll stop at Ballintoy Harbour. The rocky shoreline here featured as Pyke, the island home of Theon Greyjoy. Then it’s off to Larrybane, the quarry where Renly Baratheon held his tourney. And that’s all before you grab lunch in Ballycastle. This scenic seaside town is the home of actors Conleth Hill (Lord Varys) and Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark).
After lunch, the Game of Thrones Dragon Tour stays along the coast.
Your first stop will be to Fairhead. The coastal cliffs here helped to create the dramatic landscape of Dragonstone. Also a feature of the Targaryen homeland are the Cushendun Caves. This is where Ser Davos witnesses Mellisandre giving birth to the Shadow Assassin.
Finally, before returning to Belfast, you’ll make a stop at Carnlough. This peaceful seaside town featured as Braavos in one of the TV series’ most dramatic scenes. This is where Arya was attacked by the Waif, only escaping by jumping into the water. You can even recreate some of this scene at the stone harbour steps, where Arya dragged herself to safety.
