This road was used as 'the King's Road' on Game of Thrones and as such has become even more popular than before. We travelled inland from Bushmills about 10 miles on country roads and found the Dark Hedges without too much difficulty. There is a hotel at the end of the road, so an infrastructure is developing. At the moment... More

Opportunity to take some wonderful photos. Strangely beautiful and will look completely different at different times of the year.

The Dark Hedges were very cool and are absolutely worth a visit. They are on the way to plenty of other attractions on the North Coast and only take 10 minutes of your time. I walked down the road and took it all in - luckily there weren't many cars passing through so you could walk in the middle and... More

yes this place is wellworth the trip any time of the year, these trees are over 200 years old and planted by the Stuart family to impress vistors coming to their house, which was Gracehill, well after all this time their still making a huge impression. Then pop into the restaurant down the road for a spot of lunch, lovely

The 'dark hedges' are well worth a visit if in Northern Ireland. Our GPS was totally baffled by the location so we were able to visit much of the nearby countryside (beautiful by itself) before finding this spectacular, but short, country road lined with giant trees. Very cool.

For non Game of Thrones fans ( and possibly including some fans), this is simply a road with interesting trees. I'm a massive GoT fan so I was happy we just happened to be staying nearby. I think even if you aren't a fan of the show it's still a visually amazing spot to see - perfectly creepy in winter... More

Even if you are not a fan of the TV series "Game of Thrones", this wonderful alley is worth a visit. The name is a bit misleading because the hedges are actually an alley of really huge trees. I only knew about it from some GoT-online forums that said a scene of the show was filmed here and I got... More
