Coast and castles
The highlight of your visit is the Game of Thrones Tour, a daylong (approximate duration nine hours) tour by air-conditioned coach.
Guided by the same people who transport the cast and crew of the show, this is where cult TV meets Northern Ireland’s gorgeous natural scenery.
Times: Daily at 9am.
Departing from central Belfast, you’ll take a short stop at a location from series six (no spoilers) before heading off to the caves where Melisandre of Asshai gave birth to her ‘shadow assassin’.
Lunch at Ballycastle: This is the hometown of Conleth Hill (who plays Varys) and Michelle Fairley (who plays Catelyn Stark). The tour will stop at a venue which serves hot and cold dishes. You are welcome to bring your own supplies.
Renly’s encampment and Lordsport: Visit the camp of Renly Baratheon of Storm’s End and cross the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. The next location is Lordsport, the port town on the island of Pyke, in the Iron Islands, home of the Greyjoys.
The Giants Causeway: Not a GoT location, but an unmissable UNESCO site, with 90 minutes to explore.
The House of Greyjoy: You’ll have time for a quick photo stop at Dunluce Castle, the 17th century ruin that was used as the exterior of the House of Greyjoy on the show.
Photo stop on the Kings’ Road: The journey back to Belfast includes one final stop, the Dark Hedges, with their natural archway of intertwined trees. The road is one of Northern Ireland’s most photographed locations and is the place where Arya Stark dressed as a boy to escape from King’s Landing.
Today’s Big Deal from OMGhotels.com offers an unmissable invitation for Game of Thrones fans to soak up the spectacular scenery of Northern Ireland and witness where some of the show’s most dramatic scenes were shot.
With plentiful photo-opportunities, it’s a great chance to get a little closer to the fantastic world of Westeros.
