Cushenden Caves

The Cushenden caves appeared in season two as a cove in the Stormlands – the memorable scene saw Melisandre give birth to the shadow creature. It was also the location of the fight between Euron Greyjoy and Jaime Lannister in season 8.

Ballintoy Harbour

Visit Ballintoy where Theon came ashore on Pyke Island, where Theon later rededicated his faith to the ‘Drowned God’ and where Gendry escapes Dragonstone in a rowing boat.

Giant's Causeway

Visit to the UNESCO World Heritage site, the geological marvel of 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, formed 50-60 million years ago. 8.

The Dark Hedges

See the famous Dark Hedges, a haunting avenue of magical beech trees, through which Arya and Gendry escaped for King’s Landing.

This epic full day experience visits the Glens of Antrim and the dramatic north coast. We take you to the cave where Melisandre gives birth to a dark spirit, Renly’s Camp in the Stormlands, the Iron Islands beach where Theon dedicated his faith to the Drowned God, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, the mysterious Dark Hedges and the breathtaking Giant’s Causeway.

We carry Iron Born costumes, metal swords, shields and banners in the trunk of the coach which we offer to customers when the tour arrives at the location of Lordsport on Pyke island. Our guides were all extras in Game of Thrones® – Starks, Wildlings and one Iron Born! What is dead may never die!

My husband and I are huge Game of Thrones fans and this experience was amazing. Brian, our tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and full of energy. I could not recommend this tour more!
