One of our most highly-rated tours on TripAdvisor, described by Buzzfeed in August 2017 as the ‘most badass Game of Thrones® tour in the world’, this immersive experience travels around the Antrim coast taking in lots of filming locations. These include Dragonstone beach where Melisandre burned the effigies of the Seven Gods, the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, Renly’s Camp in the Stormlands, Lordport harbour in the Iron Islands, the Giant’s Causeway UNESCO World Heritage site and the mysterious Dark Hedges.

Your guide will be an extra from Game of Thrones® and will use screenshots and tablet clips throughout the day to show you how each location was used in the series.

We also provide beautifully crafted leather Iron Born cloaks, hand-painted banners and metal swords and axes so get ready to storm the beach with your fellow Iron born!

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!
