Game of Thrones Full-Day Tour with Giant’s Causeway
Traverse the Seven Kingdoms on the Game of Thrones Full-Day Tour with Giant's Causeway. Get up-close and personal with the spectacular settings that have brought Westeros to life on-screen.
On this comprehensive full-day tour you will get the chance to visit some of the most iconic filming locations from the epic TV series. Explore the natural scenery and learn the local history and stories that make these areas so special.
Leaving Belfast in the morning, this tour s jam-packed with sites that any GOT fan is sure to recognise.
First on the list is a visit to the Dark Hedges. Beech trees, planted in the 1700s, line the sides of this road, creating a naturally occurring canopy above. The striking effect of this sight made this location the perfect place to represent Westeros’ King’s Road. It can be seen most prominently in Season 2, when Arya Stark escapes Kings Landing disguised as a boy.
Moving on from here you will get the opportunity to take some fun holiday snaps outside Dunluce Castle. This 13th-century ruin on a cliff’s edge was featured as House Greyjoy. Then it’s off to one of the most famous parts of Northern Ireland: Giant’s Causeway. This UNESCO World Heritage Site draws in thousands of visitors every year. While it doesn’t feature in GOT, its natural beauty really shouldn’t be missed.
With a quick stop for more photos outside of Dunseverick Castle, it’s then on to Ballintoy Harbour. This small fishing port helped to create Lordsport, part of Theon Greyjoy’s island home, Pyke. The rough landscape around the area made for the perfect scenery to represent the Iron Islands.
The next stop on the Game of Thrones Full-Day Tour with Giant’s Causeway is Larrybane.
This disused chalk quarry made the perfect location to hold Renly Baratheon’s tourney. Here is where we meet Brienne of Tarth for the first time, as she defeats Loras Tyrell. Larrybane is also the access point to the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. Suspended over the roaring sea, crossing this bridge is not for the faint of heart. If you do make the journey, just try not to end up like Balon Greyjoy.
The final stop on this tour is the Cushendon Caves. These beautiful sea caves helped to create the ominous setting of one of the TV show’s most mystical and frightening scenes. Here, with Davos Seaworth watching in horror, Melisandre gives birth to the shadow baby that eventually kills Renly Baratheon.
Northern Ireland is peppered with now iconic sites from the GOT series. The Game of Thrones Full-Day Tour with Giant’s Causeway lets you experience them all by taking in their beauty and wonder in person.
We can stop for lunch (at your own expense) in a nice Irish pub to sample our good food and maybe a cheeky pint of Guinness. Or if you want to keep it simple, then a nice portion of fish and chips and not forgetting mushy peas, from one of the local chip shops.
