Go and see it for yourself. Stunning and yet its "just" a country road!

Terribly signposted i.e. not at all, and full of tourists even on a March day, but well worth the visit nevertheless. The view is serene and a bit surreal. I would choose to visit... read more

Terribly signposted i.e. not at all, and full of tourists even on a March day, but well worth the visit nevertheless. The view is serene and a bit surreal. I would choose to visit early in the morning to catch good light to photograph it, ideally when is just getting light and there has been mist or fog. A local... More

A very nice lady at the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre recommended that we visit the Dark Hedges. It was well worth it, the trees are exceptional.

The Dark Hedges are a lovely stretch of tree lined road. Our trip was in early spring and therefore the tree's were bare; it would be nice to see it in the summer and/or early autumn.

Not a film fan however this stretch of country road has been made famous! Ancient beech trees (circa. 240 year old I believe) line both sides of around 600m of this small country road. Regrettably some have disappeared and now new saplings take their place. It is interesting to view down the road in the direction of the house that... More

Never seen Game of Thrones! Still found these ancient trees a fascinating place to visit. Planted in the 18th century, the trees are magnificent any time of the day or year. They won't last forever and it will take many years to replace them. I'm not sure any one photo does them justice. Not to be missed. Incredibly but eerily... More

Yes, it's the King's Road... Worth a detour! It can be hard to find, but follow the signs for Gracehill Golf Club.

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
