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. Legend has it that the grey lady haunts the road at dusk. It is truly a mystical and magical place.
The Dark Hedges is included in the filming location in HBO's epic series Game of Thrones, representing the Kingsroad.
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
