In the trunk of the coach we have Northern cloaks, metal swords and hand-painted Stark banners. The is the only coach tour from Dublin that visits these locations, away from the tourist crowds. Don’t miss this chance to explore the real Westeros in Northern Ireland!
My sons and I really enjoyed this trip. I highly recommend this to any big fan of the show. It was also a great way to see more of this beautiful country.
