GAME OF THRONES TOUR - Standard
Fabled castles, haunted forests and now a stunning, hand-woven tapestry – Game of Thrones® has become a part of Northern Ireland’s epic story.
Westeros might feel like another world, but the Seven Kingdoms are very real. The dramatic landscape of Game of Thrones® finds a home in Northern Ireland.
As one of the key filming locations for the hit television show, this is a place where fantasy comes to life. You can imagine White Walkers roaming the forests, direwolves howling in the night and dragons soaring overheard. So be brave, and take your first steps down the Kingsroad to discover the wonders of Westeros.
This is fully guided, all day tour taking in the best of the Game of Thrones filming locations on the beautiful North Antrim coast. There are seven designated stopping points, but the tour also weaves past and takes in other well-known parts of 'Westeros'. The Glens of Antrim, an area of outstanding natural beauty, will be enjoyed en route to the Giants Causeway.
This part of Northern Ireland has so many direct links to the series and they are nothing short of incredible.
See first-hand the stunning scenery featured as the backdrop in the HBO’s series when you join us for an unforgettable day.
The standard tour covers the the North Coast filming locations in Antrim with a visit to Titanic Quarter to see the Season 8 Kings Landing set - the largest and most expensive set in TV history and to see the location of the main filming studio.

Mussenden Temple and Downhill Beach (Dragonstone Beach)
Mussenden Temple overlooks one of the North Coasts most beautiful beaches, Downhill Beach. Stretching for over 11km this beach provides the perfect location for Mussenden Temple. This Classical round temple was built to be a summer library, while today it stands dramatically on top of a cliff, with views of the Northern Irish and Donegal coast. Both the Mussenden Temple and Downhill Beach were used in Game of Thrones as the location for the Dragonstone exterior. Remember the burning of the old gods by Melisandre on the beach? Well, that was here. And also where Stannis Baratheon draws a flaming sword from the flames, 'Lightbringer'.
Ballintoy Harbour (Lordsport)
Ballintoy Bay is the real-world location of Lordsport (the port of Pyke in the Iron Islands). This picturesque little fishing village and its harbour are one of the most beautiful parts of the coast of Antrim. The production team of the series chose this wonderful place to be the port of Pyke, where Theon Greyjoy sets foot back on the Iron Islands, admires his ship and has some trouble with his crew.
Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge (Larrybane)
Suspended almost 100 ft (30 m) above sea level, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge was first erected by salmon fishermen 350 years ago. Today it is a popular tourist destination, attracting thousands of thrill-seekers (and birdwatchers!) to the North Coast every year. If you are bold enough to cross the 65 ft (20 m) bridge, stretching from the mainland to 'Rocky Island', you will be rewarded with fantastic views of Rathlin Island, Scotland and the Causeway Coast. Get a bird's eye view of the clear, green water flowing around the ancient caves and caverns far below - if you dare to look down.
Larrybane was the dramatic spot chosen for Renly Baratheon’s camp in Season 2.
The Dark Hedges (The Road from King's Landing)
The Dark Hedges might possibly be the most beautiful avenue of beech trees in the world. Planted by the Stuart family in the 18th century to impress their visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion (Gracehill House) and it does the job very well. It is one of the most photographed sites in the country. Back in Westeros, the Dark Hedges are the Kingsroad, north of King's Landing. Disguised as a boy, Arya escapes from the city with Yoren, Gendry, Hot Pie and all the other people who are to join the Night's Watch.
Cushendun Caves (Melisandre)
As you creep into Antrim’s Cushendun Caves, which formed over a period of 400 million years, bear in mind that this is the same spot where Melisandre birthed the shadow assassin. She also burned the old gods on Dragonstone, otherwise known as Downhill Strand in County Londonderry, a scenic beach dominated by the elegant 18th century ruins of Mussenden Temple.
Portstewart Strand (Dorne)
Portstewart Strand boasts miles of golden sand, and this scenic spot is where Jaime and Bronn, disguised as Martell soldiers, approach the gates of the Water Gardens and where the two fight (and kill) Dornish soldiers.
