Whilst the hugely popular Game of Thrones TV series, adapted from George Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, is filmed all over Europe, many of the key locations are based in Northern Ireland. The Game of Thrones Tour in Belfast will give you the chance to see iconic sites from Season 1 to 6 from your very own local Maester, a fan of both the books & TV series who will recall incredible tales of legend and local history that could come right out of the books.
Departing from central Belfast, you’ll take a short stop at a location from Season 6, before heading off to the caves where Melisandre of Asshai gave birth to her ‘shadow assassin’, who then went on to slay Renly Baratheon. Remember that the night is dark and full of terrors.
Lunch will be taken in the small coastal town of Ballycastle, hometown of Conleth Hill, the actor playing Varys. Bring your own lunch or stop at a venue where hot and cold food is served.
Whilst the Giant's Causeway hasn’t been featured in Game of Thrones, the spectacular site is a must see and you will have approx 1 ½ hours to explore.
Stop for a photo at the House of Greyjoy and the Dark Hedge where Arya Stark dressed as a boy to escape from King’s Landing.
