HBO’s award-winning television series Game Of Thrones combines the cut and thrust of medieval warfare with murder, mysticism, and intrigue. The battle for control of The Iron Throne, which rules over the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros has captured the imagination of fans all over the world that revel in every twist and turn of the storyline. Just as Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings used various locations across New Zealand, so too the makers of Game of Thrones chose Northern Ireland, with extensive filming along the stunning Causeway Coast and Glens to represent everything from Winterfell to the King’s Road, The Iron Islands to Stormlands. Now you too can stand on the spot where Lannisters’ schemed, stroll in the footsteps of Starks, and gaze on grasslands crossed by the Dothraki horde.
These Game Of Thrones itineraries are voyages of discovery that let you experience the fantasy world of author George R.R. Martin for yourself. Plotting a path through the scenic splendour of the Seven Kingdoms, it takes you to where so many of the pivotal scenes were shot.
“Northern Ireland looked amazing on film and suited Game of Thrones with the rugged, barren, and at times, wild backdrops,” said Michelle Fairley (Lady Catelyn Stark). Born and brought up in the area, it was a real homecoming for one of the show’s central characters. “Coming back to film Game Of Thrones was meant to feel like home, and it did. It’s an area I love and you can never tire of looking at the stunning scenery.”
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. So why not step on to a set like no other, where you can indulge your fascination for Game of Thrones, investigate what Northern Ireland has to offer, and still have time to enjoy the sort of hospitality for which this small corner of the globe is famed.
