Pros: beautiful, interesting trees, not popular spot for tourists, great photo op, FREE!! Cons: a little off the beaten path, no signage, hard to fund unless you map it out on gps

This quaint road is a bit out-of-the-way, but it makes it nice, as there is little traffic along the road. There is a parking area at one end and you can slowly stroll along, and just take in the beautiful surroundings.

If you are in the area, or if you love Game of Thrones, then stop by for photos of this unusual tree-lined road. It is quite dramatic especially when you get completely into the trees.

We read about this in a pamphlet in the cottage we stayed in. We are not Game of Thrones followers so hadn't heard about this spot. It was very cool. We were so pleased we went.

As a Fan of Game of thrones I returned to Ireland to see the filming locations. I can't believe how beautiful my home country is as this is a perfect example. Hard to find but worth it. Would recommend to all

Seeing it is definitely different. It makes it more magical and more amazing. Great photo opportunities. Not much to do but to enjoy the sight of the trees. A good 15 minutes stop.

Great spot that makes for some incredible photo opportunities. Make sure to get an early start to ensure an chance to get photos before the crowds show up. If you are heading to the causeway coast attractions from Belfast, this little road is definitely worth a quick detour. I'm not sure the effect would be as enjoyable with a large... More

I guess I expected more. There were work crews out trimming the dead trees and limbs. I've seen creepier locations in South Carolina wher the branches intertwine above the lane and the creepy Spanish moss hangs down. If you are on a tour of the Antrim coast it is worth the visit. The Antrim coast far surpasses views in Southern... More

So cool! I'm happy we decided to look for these on our way to the Giant's Causeway. If you're in the area, it's worth a see. We walked the road after parking.

Not far from the coast and well worth the visit. We were given directions from our B&B and there are lots of turns and you need to be told where it is - it is not signposted. But absolutely great to see - really eerie and different - beautiful with the sun slanting down through the trees and almost ghostly... More
