Beginning in Dublin City Centre, the Game of Thrones Location Tour transports you to the world created by George RR Martin in A Song of Ice and Fire. However, before you reach your first destination, your guide will regale you with Irish history and legends as you pass through the verdant countryside.

After stopping for coffee and snacks, you will be treated to some of the most iconic filming locations from the GOT TV series. Walk along the real-life Kings Road at the famous Dark Hedges.

This tour will also make a stop at one of Northern Ireland’s most beloved landmarks: Giants Causeway. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must-see for any visitor. Created by a volcanic eruption, the landscape of Giants Causeway boasts 40,000 striking, hexagonal basalt columns.

2. The Dark Hedges / The Kingsroad

The Dark Hedges / Game of Thrones Kingsroad

Known for being one of the most eye-catching naturally occurring scenes in the world, the Dark Hedges are famous for framing the scene for Arya Stark’s exciting escape to Winterfell. These arching beech trees have remained steadfast for over two centuries waiting for you – don’t let them down! This place was used as the King’s road in the Game of Thrones. When Arya was disguised as Arry the orphan boy, she became friends with Hot Pie and Robert Baratheon’s bastard son, Gendry, on her way back to Winterfell.

Duration: around 20 – 30 minutes

3. Giant's Causeway

Giant's Causeway

Hailed by Visit Belfast and Tourism Ireland, the Giants Causeway is a must-see tourist attraction as this breathtaking World Heritage Site is one of the best places to visit in Ireland. At this stop you will enjoy the dramatic scenery and green hills as well as the hexagonal, basalt stone columns that make up the causeway.

Made up of approximately 40,000 basalt columns, the Giant’s Causeway is said to have been created by a volcanic eruption. Although it technically reaches right to Scotland, it can only be seen properly from the coast of Northern Ireland.

You will also get to learn some of the local folklore – such as the tale of our namesake – Finn McCool! This Irish giant had a bone to pick with an enemy – a giant known as Benandonner. Finn tore up all of the earth from Ireland to Scotland, to create a path for him so they could have it out! Benandonner, after losing to Finn, was said to have fled back to Scotland, wrecking the earth as he went, and causing the hexagonal formations that we see today.

Duration: around 1½ – 2 hours

4. Ballintoy Harbour / Lordsport, Pyke

Ballintoy Harbour / Lordsport, Pyke

The location for Theon Greyjoy’s return to the Iron Islands, this small coastal village is one of the most pretty and picturesque on the island. Ballintoy, or “raised beach” was also used for exterior Pyke shots in the Game of Thrones TV series. In the presence of Balon and Yara Greyjoy and the other Ironborn, the baptism of Theon to reaffirm his allegiance to the God of the Sea was filmed here. Sadly for Balon, this is also the place for his burial.

Duration: around 1½ hours.

5. Glens of Antrim

We will now start heading back to Belfast, taking an off the beaten path that winds through the GLENS OF ANTRIM

No other tour company will take you on a route going over the Glens of Antrim, you will enjoy a spectacular view of Glenariff, the queen of the glens, while travelling through the valleys on the side of Glendun, this is the most scenic route of the day.

6. Belfast

As the city centre itself is very small and compact, 45 minutes is more than enough time to explore the city centre. See interesting things like Titanic Memorial Gardens next to Belfast City Hall, the shopping streets, Belfast entries and some of the modern art in the city. Note that Northern Ireland is part of the UK and uses Pound Sterling.

Duration: about 45 minutes
