The massively popular Game of Thrones TV series has become nothing short of a television sensation. The show which was adapted from author George Martin’s books A Song of Ice and Fire. One of the key elements of the shows success is attributed to the shows many exquisite locations, many of which are based right here in Northern Ireland. The Glenara Elite Travel's Game of Thrones Tour gives you the chance to see many of these showcased sites from each series of the show, as well as other diamonds of Northern Ireland's North Coast including Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the Giant’s Causeway, all from our luxury coach in a single day.

See all our tour locations below.

Mussenden Temple and Downhill Beach (Dragonstone Beach)
Mussenden Temple overlooks one of the North Coasts most beautiful beaches, Downhill Beach. Stretching for over 11km this beach provides the perfect location for Mussenden Temple. This Classical round temple was built to be a summer library, while today it stands dramatically on top of a cliff, with views of the Northern Irish and Donegal coast. Both the Mussenden Temple and Downhill Beach were used in Game of Thrones as the location for the Dragonstone exterior. Remember the burning of the old gods by Melisandre on the beach? Well, that was here. And also where Stannis Baratheon draws a flaming sword from the flames, 'Lightbringer'.
Time at location: 60mins



Dunluce Castle (Not a Game of Thrones location, but not to be missed)
Dunluce Castle is a medieval castle, originally built in 1500. When you visit this iconic monument perched on the North Antrim coastline, you will discover the dramatic history of Dunluce. Ask about the story of the kitchens falling into the sea! Oh, and how Dunluce has a potato named after it!
Time at location: 60mins

Giant’s Causeway
The Giant’s Causeway is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland. It was created 60 million years ago and it is renowned for its polygonal columns of layered basalt. Anything else? Yes! The Giant’s Causeway is also steeped in myth and legend. People say that the rocks were carved by a giant called Finn McCool! The Giant’s Causeway is not to be missed!
Time at location: 120mins



Ballintoy Harbour (Lordsport)
Ballintoy Bay is the real-world location of Lordsport (the port of Pyke in the Iron Islands). This picturesque little fishing village and its harbour are one of the most beautiful parts of the coast of Antrim. The production team of the series chose this wonderful place to be the port of Pyke, where Theon Greyjoy sets foot back on the Iron Islands, admires his ship and has some trouble with his crew.
Time at location: 15mins

Carrick-N-Rede Rope Bridge(Larrybane)
Suspended almost 100 ft (30 m) above sea level, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge was first erected by salmon fishermen 350 years ago. Today it is a popular tourist destination, attracting thousands of thrill-seekers (and birdwatchers!) to the North Coast every year. If you are bold enough to cross the 65 ft (20 m) bridge, stretching from the mainland to 'Rocky Island', you will be rewarded with fantastic views of Rathlin Island, Scotland and the Causeway Coast. Get a bird's eye view of the clear, green water flowing around the ancient caves and caverns far below - if you dare to look down.
Larrybane was the dramatic spot chosen for Renly Baratheon’s camp in Season 2.

The Dark Hedges (The Road from King's Landing)
The Dark Hedges might possibly be the most beautiful avenue of beech trees in the world. Planted by the Stuart family in the 18th century to impress their visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion (Gracehill House) and it does the job very well. It is one of the most photographed sites in the country. Back in Westeros, the Dark Hedges are the Kingsroad, north of King's Landing. Disguised as a boy, Arya escapes from the city with Yoren, Gendry, Hot Pie and all the other people who are to join the Night's Watch.
