One of our most popular tours this immersive Game of Thrones experience travels up and around the Antrim coast taking in scores of real life filming locations from the series. Experience mysterious caves, Iron Born beaches, storm worn harbors, rope bridges, the dark hedges and the breath taking Giant’s Causeway all in one day.
We also provide beautifully constructed Iron Borne cloaks, replica banners made by our art department along with swords and shields so get ready to storm the beach with your fellow Iron borne.
Our highly acclaimed guides provide running commentary throughout the day and provide visuals with screenshots via iPad showing how each location was used in the series.
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!
