Whilst the hugely popular Game of Thrones TV series, adapted from George Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, is filmed all over Europe, many of the key locations are based in Northern Ireland. Highly recommended on Trip Advisor, the Game of Thrones Tour in Belfast will give you the chance to see iconic sites from Series 1 to 6 from your very own Maester, as well as other gems of Northern Ireland including Carrick-a-Rede and the Giant’s Causeway.
Your local guide, fan of both the books & TV series, the Maester will discuss information from the Game of Thrones series, recall incredible tales of legend and local history that could come right out of the books.
Departing from central Belfast, you’ll head to the location where Ned Stark beheads a Member of the Night’s Watch from Series 1. As part of the tour, you’ll even have a chance to pose with a costume and sword to fully immerse yourself in the experience. From here, you will head to Carnlough, where a scene from the forthcoming Series 6 has taken place. Be brave when you walk into the caves where Melisandre of Asshai gave birth to her ‘shadow assassin’, who then went on to slay Renly Baratheon. The night is dark and full of terrors.
Lunch will be taken in the small coastal town of Ballycastle, hometown of actor Conleth Hill (who plays Varys) and Michelle Fairley (who played Catelyn Stark).
Your journey continues with a visit to the Camp of Renly Baratheon of Storm’s End and gives you the chance to cross the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. The next destination is Lordsport, to witness where Theon Greyjoy would return to his family and betray those who raised him.
A crucial part of any trip to Northern Ireland is to see the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway. Although it hasn’t been featured in Game of Thrones, the spectacular site is a must see where you will have approx 1 ½ hours to explore.
The journey back to Belfast, includes one final stop at the Dark Hedge, with its natural archway of intertwined trees. The road is one of Northern Ireland’s most photographed locations and the place where Arya Stark dressed as a boy to escape from King’s Landing. Pose for pictures,… …then return to Belfast, where you will be dropped back in the centre of the city.
As there is walking as part of the tour it may not be suitable for those with mobility problems.
