Sit back and relax on a luxury coach, as you are whisked through the beautiful, rolling landscapes of Northern Ireland. As you pass through the verdant countryside, let your all-knowing guide reveal the history of the area, and it’s significance to GOT.
From £220 per group
The first stop on the tour is Downhill Beach. This 11km stretch of sand has featured in the GOT TV series more than once. It provides the setting for Dragonstone Beach, home place of the Targaryen family.
Jon Snow arrived here by boat before his first meeting with Daenerys ‘Mother of Dragons’. Of course, the location was also used while Stannis Baratheon resided in Dragonstone too. You may recognize it as the beach where Melisandre burned the effigies of the old gods.
Next, you will visit the perfect setting for a GOT inspired photo op: Dunluce Castle. Built in the 1500s, on a cliff edge overlooking a trundling sea, this castle looks like something straight out of George RR Martin’s imagination. Make sure to ask your guide about the eventful history of the site, as there are many stories to tell!
Ballintoy Bay is another stop of great significance. A peaceful fishing village, this area may initially come across as unassuming. However, this small seaside spot was actually used to recreate Pyke, the island home of Theon Greyjoy.
You’ll also get to visit the Dark Hedges (which already sounds like a location from A Song of Ice and Fire). The interlocking trees here, planted in the 18th century, provide the eerie-looking canopy over the King’s Road. Disguised as a boy, Arya Stark travelled along this route trying to escape from King’s Landing.
Finally, your tour will stop at two historic locations of great pride for the people of Northern Ireland: Giant’s Causeway and the Carrick-n-Rede rope bridge. Both are must-see sites for anybody travelling through this part of the world.
