What makes this tour special

Explore the dramatic, rugged splendour of the north Antrim coastline, known to us as Westeros, to see where so many iconic scenes from Game of Thrones were filmed on this private full-day tour from Belfast, with entrance tickets to the craggy ruins of Dunluce Castle – or Castle Greyjoy, among many other locations. 

On your private tour, you will: 

Walk in the footsteps of the feuding dynasties of Westeros: the houses of Stark, Arryn, Baratheon, Tully, Greyjoy, Lannister, Tyrell, Martell and Targaryen, as well as your favourite Game of Thrones characters, such as Arya Stark, Melisandre, Danaerys Targaryen and Jon Snow on this adventurous day-long tour of filming locations around the stunningly dramatic and craggy Antrim coastline, just an hour from Belfast. 

Your private day excursion takes you to many Game of Thrones locations and includes entry to the atmospheric 500-year-old Dunluce Castle, perched precariously on a cliff edge, which serves as Castle Greyjoy in the series. 

Stop at the pretty seaside harbour village of Carnlough – more famously known as Braavos in Game of Thrones, where Arya successfully escapes the Waif in Season 6. Further up the coast, you’ll see Cairncastle (from the outside) where Ned Stark beheads Will, the Night’s Watch deserter in episode 1, series 1, before driving to the Cushenden Caves. 

The Cushenden Caves have formed 400 million years ago and were built between 1912-1925 by Lord Cushenden. They became the Stormlands in Game of Thrones and where you can see the birthplace of Melisandre’s demon baby beneath Renly’s Camp. You can also relive the fight between Jamie and Euron in Season 8, which was filmed here.

Staying in Cushenden, have lunch at Mary McBride’s Bar (not included) the smallest pub in Ireland, and examine one of the Games of Thrones Doors, made from the storm-damaged trees of the Dark Hedges, carved with scenes set in Braavos.

Visit Fair Head and walk the crag to explore the mighty Dragonstone Cliffs, where Jon Snow encounters Daenerys and her dragon. A short distance from the cliffs takes you to Larrybane Quarry, a great filming location for the Stormlands. This old chalk quarry became Renly Baratheon’s Camp and was transformed into a tournament arena in season 2, where Brienne of Tarth triumphs in her duel. It is also famous for the death-defying, iconic Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge.

Next, visit picturesque Ballintoy Harbour close by, which is where Theon arrives in Lordsport on the Iron Islands. Nearby, Ballintoy Beach is where Euron is drowned to become king of the Iron Islands.

Drive along the grand Kings Road, to see the twisted trunks of the Dark Hedges. A mysterious and beautiful avenue of old beech trees was planted in 1775. At the end of the Dark Hedges lies Gracehill House – where you will see another of the Game of Thrones Doors, this time commemorating Bran's transformation into the Three-Eyed Raven. 

Return to Belfast through the rugged landscape of the Antrim plateau, and back to your hotel.
