If you haven’t yet heard of Game of Thrones, have you been living under a rock for the last five years? While some of you may have read the book series by George R. R. Martin, others are purely hooked on the show and there are a few avid fans who partake in both mediums.
With winter fast approaching, we can hear you all mimicking the House of Stark motto, wishing you were there, experiencing it alongside your favourite characters – that is, if they make it!
Much like the Harry Potter and Breaking Bad frenzy that came about when they were released, the hype surrounding Game of Thrones doesn’t look like it is going to end anytime soon. Breaking Bad fanatics have been asked to stop throwing pizzas on top of Walter White’s house and the hordes of fans still waiting to get their photo taken at Platform 9 ¾ in Kings Cross Station, are still not waning. Much in the same way, Game of Thrones fans are flocking to the Emerald Isle in search of Kings Landing and Winterfell.
The good news is that we have a Game of Thrones tour that you can enjoy, and even customise to visit some of the further afield spots; on your very own VIP Game of Thrones experience.
You Know Nothing
Take everything you thought you knew about Game of Thrones, and make it a reality. Taking in the breathtaking scenery throughout Northern Ireland has never been as exhilarating as it is knowing that your favourite TV show was filmed at the very same spot. Take in the iconic and majestic Dark Hedges on The King’s Road; a stunning archway of 200 year old Birch trees, and explore Larrybane, host to various scenes including Storm’s End.
Other highlights across Northern Ireland from Game of Thrones include: The glorious Downhill Beach, Londonderry – which was transformed into Dragonstone in series 2, Cushendun Caves in Antrim saw Melisandre give birth in the Stormlands, Castle Ward in County Down was transformed into the iconic location of Winterfell and Tollymore Forest Park – where the infamous opening scene of season 1 took place; in which the night watch finding dismembered bodies in the Haunted Forest, was filmed.
Our Game of Thrones tour is very flexible. You can follow the standard tour, or you can customise it to include locations of your choice. All changes to the itinerary are to be arranged in advance, and prices will reflect this, accordingly.
