wish we were there earlier in the day so that we could have visited the mansion at the end of the road. We were there at dusk (cool time to go). Navigating the dark streets on the way out, however, was a little nerve-racking. A good, quick stop.

Although I'm not a GOT fan i found this to be a very interesting experience, I guess I was lucky as although I didn't go early there was hardly anyone else there. I think it may well have been a little more dark and spooky if I had gone late in the day but I went mud morning and it... More

Wonderful place to stroll among ancient trees that almost seem to be reaching out for a hug or tug. Voted one of the top five tree tunnels in the world, this is a must-see for anyone visiting the more famous nearby places like Bushmill's Distillery or Giant's Causeway.

I live near here and it has always been very beautiful scenery. Recently made famous but the Game of Thrones. The only down side is that all the tourists take up all the road and park their cars on the grass verge, meaning that it has started to ware away. Please respect our beautiful scenery if you visit here and... More

If you can get there just before sunset, the lighting through the hedges turns this road into a magical place. In late September, there were not too many people but there are still a few cars that park at the entry to the road. Getting a shot without anyone in it will require some waiting, unless everyone goes in tandem... More

Pretty awesome. Took friend here who is game of thrones fan. He could relate it to certain scenes, which was very cool. We went early to avoid the craziness when the tour buses land during the day. Great wee spectacle. You can walk up and down the road a bit, take a pic, but nothing else here.

Awesome and thrilling place to visit and relive the "Thones" film....it's exactly like the movie only in real life in Ireland. You can drive the lane or walk it. Gives you the feeling that you are actually part of the 'event',

Definitely need a car to get here! Fun ride thru the countryside. Tree lane is pretty long, maybe 1/3 to 1/2 mile. There's a car park at the southern end where you can park and walk, or turn around. Unless there's a tour bus blocking the exit. As others have stated, try to get here when nobody is here. It's... More
