DARK HEDGES

This beautiful avenue of beech trees was planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century. It was intended as a compelling landscape feature to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House. Two centuries later, the trees remain a magnificent sight and have become one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland and have been used as a filming location in HBO's epic series Game of Thrones, representing the Kingsroad. The Dark Hedges is one of the most enchanting places you will ever visit and it featured several times on Game of Thrones, serving as a particularly impressive part of the King’s Road when Arya Stark was on the run, disguised as Arry. While it’s called ‘The Dark Hedges’ it’s really two long stretches of beech trees lined up, leaning into one another. There’s nowhere else like it in the world, so even people aren’t fans of Game of Thrones will want to get out and take a few photos.

This is a site that changes dramatically with our changing seasons and leads to different levels of beauty all year round. From the original 300 Beach trees that were planted here on the 2 sides of the road, there is less than 80 left so don’t miss the opportunity to see them in all their glory

 


White Park Bay Photo stop and Ballintoy Harbour (Not between 11th april and September 1st)

Ballintoy Harbour – the location for the Iron Islands in Game of Thrones (1.5 hours)

*We will not be going to Ballintoy Harbour between 12 April 2019 and 1 September 2019. Instead, you will visit the Game of Thrones™ Touring Exhibition in Belfast (entrance fee included).

Travel to Ballintoy Harbour, the real-life setting of the Iron Islands, one of the most rugged, wild parts of Game of Thrones. It is the home of House Greyjoy, to Theon and his family. If you forget the unpleasant setting in Game of Thrones, Ballintoy Harbour is actually one of the most pleasant and picturesque spots in Ireland.

Ballintoy means “raised beach” and that’s what it is. The views are stunning and even people who aren’t familiar with Game of Thrones will still enjoy themselves. We think that Ballintoy is exactly the kind of idyllic setting people want to see when they imagine visiting Ireland and we always get great feedback from our guests. We’re showing off some of the best locations in all of Ireland on this tour!


Game of Thrones Exhibition

The largest ever official Game of Thrones public display showcases costumes, authentic props and majestic settings from all seven seasons of the Game of Thrones. Being the principle filming location (both in natural settings and within Titanic Studios) of this Emmy award-winning series, there is no surprise that HBO has decided to host this unique, interactive and immersive exhibition here in Belfast. You will have the chance to see the regal settings of King’s Landing, view the iconic costumes of House Targaryen, explore the conquered city of Meereen with its garrisons of Unsullied warriors, view Castle Black, the home of the Night’s Watch etc. 

We will then make our way directly back to Dublin and drop you off at Parnell Square.
