Itinerary

Dark Hedges/ Ayra's escape - around 20 minutes

At the Dark Hedges you'll have around 20 minutes to stroll beneath the dramatic arched trees, snap photos of the natural wonder, and hear from your guide why it was chosen for the scene of Arya's nail-biting escape from King's Landing. 

Dunluce Castle - around 10 minutes

Enjoy a photo stop at the beautiful Dunluce Castle. This 13 century castle ruin is known as the nicest photo opportunity of all castles in Ireland and will make any amateur photographer look like a professional photographer. 

Please note the tour will include this stop only from 11th of April 2019 until the 1st of September 2019

Giant's Causeway - around 1.5 hours

Spend around 1.5 hours admiring the spectacular landscapes, made up of some 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed by ancient volcanic eruptions. The “stepping stones” leading from the cliff foot disappear under the sea. They reappear in the Island of Straffe in Scotland, hence the legend that this was a road built by the Irish giant Finn McCool to enable him to cross over to Scotland. Truly an amazing wonder of the world! 

Ballintoy Harbour/ Theon's return - around 1 hour

Hear how Ballintoy Harbour served as the location for Theon Greyjoy's return to the Iron Islands, as well as scenes, such as Theon's baptism, Euron's crowning, and the burial of Balon Greyjoy. Our guide will also tell you what happened behind the scene and how the locals reacted. 

Larrybane Quarry - about 20 minutes

Larrybane Quarry is the site of Renly Baratheon’s Camp of course before he got killed by the Shadow Prince but there Margaery and Renly watch Brienne of Tarth fight Ser Loras Tyrell. Larrybane is one of the most sheltered locations along the north coast.

Belfast - around 60 minutes

To finish the day of we will drop you in central Belfast, where you'll have around one hour of free time to admire the city sights, stretch your legs, or grab some snacks.

GOT fans united

Absolutely AWESOME tour. I was looking forward to this tour and it absolutely did not disappoint. Not only did I get to see Ireland’s breathtaking scenery like the Giant’s Causeway, Dunluce castle and Belfast, but I also got to see the scenery from my favorite tv series. Really excited seeing the Dark Hedges in the context of Arya’s escape. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour to any Game of Thrones fan. You won’t regret it.
