I feel like a real dork going here just because it was a Game of Thrones location, but it was really worth it on its own. The trees are just amazing (though I'm sad that some people think it's a good idea to carve stuff on them! Idiots!).

These beautiful trees are just gorgeous and when the sun hits them just so, they are amazing. If you love photography and/or Game of Thrones, you'll want to make the quick stop! I rate them a 4 for beauty. But just so no one gets disappointed that they drove out of the way just to realize you'll spend less than... More

Really lovely place to see, the trees are just spectacular. I'd advise going when it's a little quieter as cars/tourists tend to get in the way of nice photos.

These stunning trees are worth the drive. We came from Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge then head off to this location. I saw this on Trover and forced my husband (then boyfriend) to visit this place. I found this interesting since I am a GoT fan!!! It's quite enchanting... Thank you Stuart Family! So glad to have visited this place!!!

Great experience to see and can understand why so many people do. Plenty of other people there, but it didn't feel too crowded. A couple of coaches parked up and can't help but feel it would be better if something could be done to park a little away from the main attraction.

It shows natures beauty once again. However is it worthwhile the hassle of going to see them? I'd say not... A lot of cars and people around for trees. Don't get me wrong they are interesting to see and if in the area probably worth a minutes viewing!

One of the many great Game of Thrones attractions to visit in Northern Ireland. Seeing it in person is much better than seeing it in pictures.
