“Now you too can stand on the spot where Lannisters schemed, stroll in the footsteps of Starks, and gaze on grasslands crossed by the Dothraki horde.”
HBO’s award-winning television series Game Of Thrones combines the cut and thrust of medieval warfare with murder, mysticism, and intrigue. The battle for control of The Iron Throne, which rules over the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros has captured the imagination of fans all over the world that revel in every twist and turn of the storyline.
Just as Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings used various locations across New Zealand, so too the makers of Game of Thrones chose Northern Ireland, with extensive filming along the stunning Causeway Coast and Glens to represent everything from Winterfell to the King’s Road, The Iron Islands to Stormlands. Now you too can stand on the spot where Lannisters schemed, stroll in the footsteps of Starks, and gaze on grasslands crossed by the Dothraki horde.
Northern Ireland remains popular for HBO film locations and fans who wish to visit many of these famous locations. Filming is underway for season 7 so you never know who you might see!!
