I am a game of thrones fan but had never bothered to go see the dark hedges. Thought I would go today before the last season starts in April. They are definitely worth going to see. Such an atmosphere and full of history and mystique....More

Beautiful. Not much of a reason to stop if you're not into dramatic scenery and Game of Thrones, or are otherwise stopping at the hotel. The bathroom at the hotel was disgusting and added to the expelling I was already doing from motion sickness. However,...More

Interesting if you are a fan of game of thrones. This is a popular destination thanks to the success of Game of Thrones tv series. Not much to see really other than an interesting tree lined avenue. Very picturesque and a great photo opportunity apart...More

It's a nice stop if you are on the way to the Giants Causeway maybe. Very nice pictures not often possible because of so many people are on the street ;)

I saw photos of the Dark Hedges ages ago, and decided that it was on the bucket list. I'm not a Game of Thrones watcher, so had no idea of the popularity, but our cousins live in the area, and it was also one of...More

We had a hire car & just popped in on the way to the causeway coastal route. This attraction should take less than an hour to visit
