Know More about this tour

The first stop will be Carncastle (Nights Watch Beheading). It was here on the windswept Antrim Plateau that Game of Thrones kicked off in dramatic fashion with Ned Stark beheading the Night’s Watch deserter, witnessed by Jon Snow, Theon Greyjoy, and the Stark brothers Robb and Bran; and where Catelyn captures Tyrion Lannister whom she suspects of trying to kill her son. When Bran, Rickon, Osha, and Hodor head north to The Wall it is also from the land above Cairncastle that they take a last look back at Winterfell.

The second stop will be Cushendun Caves (birth to the shadow baby). The Caves at Cushendun were formed over a period of 400 million years and extreme weather conditions in Ireland. They are found just beyond the beautiful coastal village of Cushendun and we access them by foot next to the Bay Hotel and Cave House.

There will then be a comfort break at Carnlough.

The tour will then go to Larrybane, Carrick-a-Rede (Storm’s End). Located along the stunning North Coast close to Carrick-Rede Rope Bridge, this area is exceptional in is natural beauty. Larrybane headland, which once stretched out towards Sheep Island and had a promontory fort on the top dating to 800AD, had large caves underneath which once served as home to boat builders and a safe resting place from winter storms. Despite having been quarried in the 1950′s this quarry is still worth a visit for its exceptional views. Fans will recognize this location as Storm’s End.

The next stop will be Ballintoy Harbour (The Iron Islands). As you come over the Knocksoghey Brae from Ballycastle or in from Whitepark Bay you are greeted by spectacular views, each one featuring Ballintoy Church. This stunning seaside location has been used for exterior Pyke shots and as the Iron Islands.

After Ballintoy Harbour the tour will make its way to the Giant's Causeway. The 'Game of Thrones' itinerary is a great way to discover some key filming locations of the show along the stunning Causeway Coast of Northern Ireland. Plotting a path through the scenic splendor of the Seven Kingdoms, it takes you to where so many of the pivotal scenes were shot. The Game of Thrones itinerary not only brings to life the drama of the series, but also provides a front row seat at locations steeped in local myth and legend, where ancient warriors walked long before leading men. Thus, no tour would be complete without a stop at the Giants Causeway!

The last stop for the day is The Dark Hedges. This beautiful avenue of beech trees has been used as the location for the Kingsroad in the hit show. It was planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century and intended as a compelling landscape feature to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House. Two centuries later, the Dark Hedges remain a magnificent sight and have become one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland.

  • Great way to spend a day!

  • Excellent tour! We were a group of 11 aged from 18 to 67. We all had a fabulous day with Gail our tour guide. She was knowledgable about the GoT programme and also the history of the places we visited. Not everyone in our group had watched GoT but they enjoyed the beautiful scenery and places we visited just as much as the rest of us. Would highly recommend.

  • One of the best days we had in NI. Excellent locations and places to be visited with tour as you will never be able to know the story behind it unless you are with one of these guys. They Guide and driver were really helpful and knew what a lot about the places and stories behind them. Included almost all the northern locations from belfast of GOT filmings which is what we were looking for we were really happy we chose them. Only concern was not enough time at Gian Causeway as it takes long walks both ways to get to and return to main location and you need to adjust you lunch in that. Though if you would carry your lunch or something to eat, there shouldnt be any problems and you will enjoy to the best. We will definately recommend this tour to everyone whether or not GOT fans, this has to be in the list of NI visit.

  • Beautiful

  • First off a huge shout out to Charlene the guide on this tour! Sadly the tour I was on was her last day as she was pursing another opportunity. She made the day so hilarious and was so full of life and information about Belfast, Game of Thrones and Northern Ireland as a whole. She also had nothing but great things to say about the other guides. Now I'm not usually one for guided tours but this one was the best I've ever done. First off you get so much for your money in terms of what you see and where you go. The only thing not included is the Rope bridge which will run you about 6 GBP and thats such good value for money when you see where you get to go. There was no feeling crushed or like the bus would leave without you. I was on my own but met a bunch of great people on the bus driving along the coast so it made the day that much better. Strap in for a pretty long day but 90 of the time you're off the bus exploring the locations from GOT or the national trust sights. Good walking shoes are definitely something I'd suggest as there will be a bit of walking at the causeway and the bridge. I lucked out and had the sunniest day I could have asked for. Hope you get the same!

  • Absolutely brilliant, maximum fun, gossip and stories from the show, brilliant scenery,the day flew by. Gail the guide was soooo funny and jimmy our driver was a complete star. Didn't want it to end.

  • A great day out. We were lucky to have beautiful weather and really enjoyed everywhere that we got to see in Northern Ireland as part of this tour.
    I spent a while trying to weigh up different tour options and found it hard to compare them so I hope you find this useful.
    This company have different size buses- some days they have large coaches and some days smaller buses. We were lucky to have a small bus with about 30 people which meant we could easily navigate every tour stop. We saw lots of places: drove past Castle Black walls as you're not allowed to stop, stopped briefly at Carnlough Harbour and Cushendun caves and a slightly longer stop at Ballintoy Harbour beautiful! before getting to Carrick-a-Rede. This stop was longer as you have to walk from the entrance way down to the island if you want to go across the bridge free to National Trust members by the way but 6 otherwise. Just the right amount of time to go down and back without feeling rushed or bored. Then we went on to the Giant's Causeway where we had a long stop with time for lunch and exploring. There were a couple of short stops on the way back to Belfast- just photo opportunities.
    It was a great way to see lots of the countryside and beautiful locations.
    Our guide Charlene was excellent, really knowledgeable and friendly, with a good sense of humour. She told us lots about the places we were passing as well as the Game of Thrones information. Before reaching each location an ipad was passed around showing clips of the show so you could see how the locations had been used. This was a great idea but did take a while and we missed some clips.
    All the timings were really well worked-out and were perfect for the amount of time you would want in each place.
    Really enjoyed it and would recommend.

  • Charlie was a great tour guide and had lots of funny/interesting stories to share with us which made the tour even better. Got to see a lot of great sites, unfortunately the carrick o rede bridge was closed due to high winds which was a shame, but everything else was well worth it!

  • Totally worth it! This was my second excursion to the Giants Causeway as my travel companion hadn't been. The addition of the GoT sites totally changed the day. Small group and small bus which made it so easy to connect with others on the tour. I saw so much more of Northern Ireland! The guide and driver were hysterical and really engaging with stories about the show and history of the geography. Worth it for any age range. Note that the Carrick-a-Rede excursion, through fantastic to view, is a bit of a hike. They won't push you to walk to the rope bridge and I would suggest only doing if you are fit. Otherwise, stroll until you get tired, then turn around. You'll see the same things as you do going all the way to the bridge.

  • Charlene was our guide and Michael was our driver. Both were excellent!!! She was very funny and friendly. The tour is for people who are both fans or for people who just want to see the beauty of Northern Ireland. There is a lot of walking in this tour for the those who really don't like to exercise.
