Details about this tour

The first stop will be Carncastle (Nights Watch Beheading). It was here on the windswept Antrim Plateau that Game of Thrones kicked off in dramatic fashion with Ned Stark beheading the Nights Watch deserter, witnessed by Jon Snow, Theon Greyjoy, and the Stark brothers Robb and Bran; and where Catelyn captures Tyrion Lannister whom she suspects of trying to kill her son. When Bran, Rickon, Osha, and Hodor head north to The Wall it is also from the land above Cairncastle that they take a last look back at Winterfell.

The second stop will be Cushendun Caves (birth to the shadow baby). The Caves at Cushendun were formed over a period of 400 million years and extreme weather conditions in Ireland. They are found just beyond the beautiful coastal village of Cushendun and we access them by foot next to the Bay Hotel and Cave House.

There will then be a comfort break at Carnlough.

The tour will then go to Larrybane, Carrick-a-Rede (Storms End). Located along the stunning North Coast close to Carrick-Rede Rope Bridge, this area is exceptional in is natural beauty. Larrybane headland, which once stretched out towards Sheep Island and had a promontory fort on the top dating to 800AD, had large caves underneath which once served as home to boat builders and a safe resting place from winter storms. Despite having been quarried in the 1950s this quarry is still worth a visit for its exceptional views. Fans will recognize this location as Storms End.

The next stop will be Ballintoy Harbour (The Iron Islands). As you come over the Knocksoghey Brae from Ballycastle or in from Whitepark Bay you are greeted by spectacular views, each one featuring Ballintoy Church. This stunning seaside location has been used for exterior Pyke shots and as the Iron Islands.

After Ballintoy Harbour the tour will make its way to the Giant's Causeway. The 'Game of Thrones' itinerary is a great way to discover some key filming locations of the show along the stunning Causeway Coast of Northern Ireland. Plotting a path through the scenic splendor of the Seven Kingdoms, it takes you to where so many of the pivotal scenes were shot. 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. Thus, no tour would be complete without a stop at the Giants Causeway!

The last stop for the day is The Dark Hedges. This beautiful avenue of beech trees has been used as the location for the Kingsroad in the hit show. It was planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century and intended as a compelling landscape feature to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House. Two centuries later, the Dark Hedges remain a magnificent sight and have become one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland.

    Great Guide Rachel and Steven as our Driver did a fantastic fantastic job. Really good value for the money. On some spots there was little time but so we've seen a lot. And there was enough time for the best parts. So highly recommend the tour.

    I and my girl friend went on this tour. A friend told us about it. I found the woman doing the tour guide rude. The van appeared old and the noise of the van didn't let s hear much about the history narrated. We skipped one of the site that was included in the tour. The distance to the bridge and the giant cause way from where the van parked was not properly communicated to us. Ended up not going on the bridge. The queue at the bridge was so long. Speakers should be installed at the middle of the van, get new touristic vans. Hand out leaflets with history of the areas and stories narrated. Makes it easy. Tour guide should be friendly to all not acting stressed.

    The tour was really good, both guide and driver were nice and friendly. They took us to many interesting places connected to GoT and told us stories from filming. We could also borrow swords and coats to take some cool photos :)

    We were picked up in a really clean and comfy minibus by a really lovely friendly gentleman. We are massive game of thrones fans and this didn't disappoint! Our guide showed us the clip of GoT which was shot at the location we were either then going to or parked at which was really handy if you hadn't seen especially the early season recently. The capes and swords was a lovely cheery on top as well! Was great that we also got to see the giants causeway as we only came for the weekend and was really handy that it was included. We visited loads and drove past some other sites which we couldn't access but are really important such as the wall. The tour guide was really knowledgeable having been part of the making of game of thrones and we would highly recommend to any game of thrones fans.

    We enjoyed the small group aspect of this tour, smaller bus. The Game of Thrones discussion was good and made the tour fun, the cave and the Dark Hedges were great. It was great to visit other locations, Carrick a Rede and Giant's Causeway and to have tickets provided. It saved waiting time. The lunch stop was fine, though we had packed a picnic. Parking instructions for the area of Belfast would have been helpful.
