Wow, oh wow! This lane was worth the trouble to find, it is not exactly easy but the girl in the supermarket in Balleymoney gave us excellent directions. I would love to be there at dusk or early morning, very eerie I would think. One thing to keep in mind if you visit,if everyone stays to the side of the... More

I wish I knew how to input GPS coordinates into our Garmin. We had a lot of trouble finding this incredible location! I'm a Game of Thrones fan, but also a fan of photo opps- loved this one!

This "Game of Thrones" location was on my must-see list on our first trip to Northern Ireland. We found it a bit challenging to find, but got good directions from a worker at the Giant's Causeway visitor center. We were fortunate to meet a man who owns land adjacent to Bregagh Road (site of the Dark Hedges). He has a... More

Being Game of Thrones fans, we were set on finding this place. It's a beautiful little detour and feels a bit outer worldly. It's a little tricky to find, but it's at the end of Bregagh Road nearest to Gracehill Golf Club [ GPS Coordinates: N 55.134488 W: 6.3808250 to make it easy ] Definitely worth a detour of the...

If you're in the area, definitely wander through the country and find this hidden gem! Our B&B gave us a map and most places around there should be able to point you in the right direction because this IS NOT an attraction. It literally is a random road in the country, so it can be hard to find unless someone... More

Absolutely beautiful - I was there 3-4 times already and I am stunned every time. Unfortunately not so quiet anymore since it was featured in Games of Thrones.

Absolutely worth to come by on the way to Giant's Causeways. It happened by chance we got there. The trees charmed us so much that we decided to take small video of drive through the alley http://youtu.be/MJW0rk5ohmM .

I went to the Giant's Causeway first and then detoured to the Dark Hedges afterwards. They are in the middle of nowhere but well worth the trip!!! Don't expect to find any brown tourist signs to show you the way, it really IS in the middle of nowhere! I literally gasped when I turned the bend and they came into... More
