Ever since the television series’ first hit our screens in 2011, Game of Thrones has captured the imagination of viewers the world over. As each series ends, fans are eager to quench their thirst for more of the fantasy hit. One such way is by embarking on a Game of Thrones tour, visiting locations that the series was filmed in.
Because of this, Irish tourism has seen a big boom in recent years with part of the show filmed in Northern Ireland, at locations such as Castleward in Co Down, the Mourne Mountains, Paint Hall Studios in Titanic Quarter Belfast and the Dark Hedges.
Thrones Brought to Life
One of the biggest draws for booking a Game of Thrones tour is to enter the world of fiction, stepping foot on the same ground as the Starks, Greyjoys and Lannister’s. For example, on our tours, you can walk along Kingsroad, shot in the Dark Hedges, which Arya Stark used to flee King’s Landing.
Expert tour guides immerse you into the world of Game of Thrones, detailing each character’s movement in each location, bringing the show to life. With the eighth, and final, series on its way, as well as a number of spin-off series, it is likely that fans of the show will seek out such tours for many years to come.
Behind the Scenes
When you visit each location on a Game of Thrones tour, not only do you have the opportunity to experience the setting that we saw our favourite character in on-screen, but also that of the actors and actresses off-screen. You will quickly learn why the Irish scenery makes for the perfect setting for George R. R. Martin’s fantasy, and you’ll see that there is a lot more to our self-effacing country.
From Belfast to the Giant’s Causeway and beyond, Northern Ireland has a lot to offer for Game of Thrones fans, which will be sure to fall in love with our nation.
