This bus tour makes its morning pick up in Belfast’s city centre at 8.45am, seven days a week.
Here you will board the coach, and meet one of the friendly bus drivers who will guide you through the splendour of County Antrim’s north coast. Along the way, you will visit sites that you will recognize straight from GOT. These include:
Cairncastle – This is one of the first locations shown in the GOT TV series. It is used for multiple scenes, most notably in the first episode when Ned Stark has to behead the Night’s Watch deserter.
Carnlough – This small seaside village plays a big part in the story of Arya Stark. It is here that she is stabbed multiple times by the Waif. Then, after fleeing by jumping off a bridge, pulls herself out of the water.
Cushendun Caves – Within these centuries-old caves was where Melisandre gave birth to the Shadow Baby. This smoky spirit went on to kill Renly Baratheon
Ballintoy Harbour – This location provides the exterior shots of Pyke, one of the Iron Islands, and the home of Theon Greyjoy
Larrybane Quarry – It was here that the production filmed the famous tourney, in which Brienne of Tarthe bested Sir Loras Tyrell.
The Dark Hedges – No GOT tour is complete without a stop at this location. It is the site of the King’s Road, where many of the show’s adventures begin.
On top of exploring these iconic on-screen locations, you will also get the chance to explore some of Northern Ireland’s most famous historical attractions.
No trip to this part of the world would be complete without visiting Giants Causeway. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is a source of great pride for Northern Ireland and a must-see for any tourist. You will also make a stop at Carrick-a-Rede Ropebridge, located at the picturesque Larrybane headland.
As part of the adventure, the tour will also stop at Dunluce Castle. Situated on a cliff edge, this is the perfect place to grab some costumes and props and take a fun, GOT inspired photo.
A lunch stop in the seaside town of Ballycastle is also incorporated in the day’s activities. This is also the home town of Conleth Hill, who plays Lord Varys. As well as Michelle Fairley, who played Catelyn Stark.
The Stones and Thrones Tour provides you with the ultimate Game of Thrones experience.
