If you're a fan of hit TV show Game of Thrones, this tour of the show's filming locations in Northern Ireland is for you. These sites are spread out and not often indicated on a map, so traveling with a guided tour is the best way to find and learn about them. Listen to your guide talk about behind-the-scenes facts and insider filming stories, little known to the general public, while comparing the on-screen and real-life locations. Plus, a stop at the UNESCO-listed Giant's Causeway lets you tick off one of Ireland's top attractions.
Meet your guide and fellow Game of Thrones fans at a central Belfast location to board your tour vehicle.
Settle into your seat on the tour bus and set out for Carrickfergus Castle, where you'll compare real-life history with onscreen representations. Next up is Camlough Harbor, which you may recognize from season six.
Take in the scenery along the Antrim Coast, while your driver takes care of navigation, and listen to your guide's behind-the-scenes commentary on the creepy scene filmed in the Cushendun Caves. At the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, you can opt to walk it (own expense) or snap photos of the famous crossing, also used in the sixth season.
Travel to Larrybane, where one of Brienne of Tarth's most important scenes was filmed, and then to the Giant's Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your guide will fill you in on the geological formation of these unusual basalt columns and the legends it inspired.
The day's last two stops are Dunlace Castle, used as House Greyjoy, and Dark Hedges, styled in the show as the King's Road.
Return to Belfast for drop-off, relaxing and enjoying the scenery on the way back.
