During the tour passengers will be able to see Dunluce Castle ruins overlooking the stunning Northern Ireland coast line, Ballintoy Harbour which is also known as the Iron Islands from the show & Larrybane Quarry; this is where King Renly set up a camp during the Stormlands in season 2.

At the end of the tour passengers are given over an hour to explore the city of Belfast at their own pace. With the negativity surrounding this city during The Troubles you can witness how it has transformed into a lively city!

What to Expect
Meet your tour group bright and early at a central meeting location in Dublin. Board your comfortable tour vehicle and get to know your fellow Game of Thrones fans on the way. Your knowledgeable guide will tell you insider info and behind-the-scenes facts about the show. Stop at Dark Hedges to see the filming location for Arya's King's Landing escape. Move on to the Antrim Coast to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Giant's Causeway. Hear about the unique geology of the site, made up of thousands of dramatic basalt columns. Continue on to the picturesque coastal village at Ballintoy Harbour (seasonal), where you'll have some free time. From April through September, visit the touring exhibition of Game of Thrones instead. Next, head to Belfast and explore Northern Ireland's bustling capital at your own pace.
