These trees are magnificent, it is such a small road in the middle of no where but well worth the drive if you are a Game of Thrones fan. It is hard to get a good photo as there is so many people there. There is a small parking area at the top but most people just stop on the... More

It's different I'll admit but not being a 'Game of Thrones' follower it's just a normal road with some strange shaped trees not quite sure why sell it for anything else.

Even if you are not a Game of Thrones fan, the drive to see this and learn about the history (the family who owned planted the trees) and the ghost...is all worth it.

There is a parking area at the top of the street, or you can drive down. The trees are huge and really beautiful. The branches create a canopy over the drive. The area is really nice, lots of dramatic scenery. Definitely worth a stop.

The trees are very unique in their form and arrangement. Park at the end of the road in the parking area ( not well signposted).

This is a good place to pass by if you want to see some interesting trees on a road. The trees are wonderful shapes and form a pretty arch over the road. My experience was ruined by a nosy, bright orange and flashing crane at the end of the road 😔.

This was a really cool location. You can park your car at The Dark Hedges upper parking lot and walk about 5 minutes. Also you can actually drive down the road where the Dark Hedges have been planted.

I discovered this place a long time ago, long before Game of Thrones and the crowds which now visit. It is beautiful in all seasons and I cannot decide which I like most, probably winter in the snow. My only regret is that some people do not respect the 'rules', no parking on the verges especially under the tress which... More

Worth seeing, but I'm glad we went very early in the morning so we could take photos without other tourists or many cars. It's supposed to be really crowded day time... Absolutely worth getting up early for this.
