A long line of 200 year old trees which have grown in a spectacular formation - no wonder the makers of the Game of Thrones series chose this and other locations to depict fantastic scenery. If you are a fan of the series then this and other locations int he area are a must (get you picture taken of course!)

It was interesting to see, but not really worth going out of your way for. The drive to get there is scenic countryside.

A wonderful location for Game of Thrones fans to visit and photograph, the only thing about it is that sometimes it can be very busy, with fans traveling from all over the world to visit and take "selfies" etc. If you want to get a good photograph.....be prepared to wait

I was a bit wary of visiting dark hedges because I had read some of the reviews describing the many tour buses and people all crammed into this one little area. However, it was only minutes out of our way- so we decided to try it and thought we could always leave if it was too crowded. But we lucked... More

We visited here with friends as they are huge fans ( i haven't seen the programme myself) I have to say it was nice to see them and the way they have formed over the many many years. It was also nice to see what a huge attraction it is.

We went mid afternoon and thought the trees looked awesome but because of the coachloads of tourists it was difficult to get a good look, we were staying close by and went again in the evening. Such a change, the light was coming through the bare grey branches with an orange glow as though someone had flipped a switch in... More

We were travelling from Glenariff forest park to LondonDerry and thought this place is a good small diversion. It is also normally mentioned in group tours, so we wanted to spend some time here. We were not disappointed and trees present a magificient view for one's eyes and to take some great photos. Path to this place itself is through... More

Made famous by the 'Game of Thrones' this feature is a bit different from the other sights in the coastal area of Antrim. The trees are beautiful and it makes for good photography, but there are probably better things to do if it is not on your way to somewhere else.

Doesn't disappoint. I thought that the series might have used a lot of CGI, but not so. The trees really live up to the expection
