Details about this tour

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: The Dark Hedges, Ballymoney, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Leaving central Belfast in the morning, the first official stop is the Dark Hedges (around 20 minutes), known as the location where Arya Stark made her escape down The Kings Road. Journey down the tunnel-like avenue of intertwined beech trees, and spend a few minutes at the site where Ayra Stark dressed as a boy to escape from Kings Landing.
Duration: 20 minutes
Stop At: Giant's Causeway, Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Stop at the Giant's Causeway (around 1 hour 30 minutes). Explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site with ample time for discovery. Continue to the Giant's Causeway to enjoy around 1.5 hours exploring the 40,000 interlocking hexagonal stone columns on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Explore the place and hear the legend of Finn McCool. The Causeway consists of 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns formed during a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Stop At: Ballintoy Harbour, Ballintoy, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Onward to Ballintoy Harbour (where you will get around one hour) to enjoy one of our favourite filming locations on this tour. Experience the scene where Theon comes home for the first time. Your guide will show you where Theon was baptised in front of Balon and Yara, and where Euron was drowned and crowned to be king. The directors of Game of Thrones used this site extensively to film. Enjoy the most beautiful harbour in Ireland and take in the views and reflect on all the magic and mystery of Game of Thrones.

    Unfortunately our trip was going to be cancelled because the bus scheduled for us had broken down. Fortunately, the owner was a friend of another tour company that had room to accommodate us about a half hour later. We ended up getting a more comprehensive tour for the same price. Only problem with that was the front door of the bus opened several times while driving!! Driver even dropped us off at our cruise ship instead of downtown

    Not just for Game of Thrones fans - Take Michael Dunlop Dark Hedges for all Road Racing Fans... - Dark Hedges is stunning and glad to have arrived early before the other coach tours which enabled us to enjoy the route - The views further on the coast are stunning and we were very lucky with the weather. Arrived at The Giants Causeway with other tours, but not too busy to be able to appreciate the heritage site. If you don't bring a picnic, there is a small kiosk at the Causeway Hotel to purchase a snack. Enjoyed the tales of Finn McCool, learnt the difference between a Reel and a Jig along with a Folk song !! from our friendly and informative tour guide Derrick who helped pass the time between locations along with coach driver Peter - A great day out which passed much too quickly - Highly recommended.

    Our guide Tara was great!! She knew all the spots. Tara also had pics with her of the scenes from the show so we could take pics with them. Our driver drove quick and took us to every spot we were to go to.
    I would highly recommend you take this tour. The giant causeways is also a must.
