Game of Throne's Day Tour

Dublin

Did you know that Northern Ireland is the most important film location for Game of Thrones? Some of the most spectacular indoor sets in the history of television have been built for the show inside the 'Paint Hall' in Belfast, the largest studio space in the world. These sets include the Red Keep's Great Hall, with its Iron Throne, the Sept of Baelor, centre of religious worship for the Faith of the Seven and the impregnable holdfast known as the Eyrie, with its terrifying Moon Door. HBO considered no less than fourteen different countries before choosing Northern Ireland as the principal filming location for Thrones. We think they made an inspired choice. The NI sets, landscapes and castles all look fantastic on screen. Our coach tours go beyond driving and sightseeing. We take you on two long locations treks (4 miles of walking in total!). The morning trek is from Winterfell to one of Walder Frey's Twins, past Robb's Camp in the Riverlands and on to where Brienne confronted three Stark soldiers. The afternoon trek is into Tollymore Forest, to the bridge where the Starks found a dead direwolf and her pups. The most important visit is to Winterfell where an adventure sports company, based in the courtyard of Winterfell, offers Stark family cloaks, gambesons, peascods and LARP swords for those who wish to truly immerse themselves in the mood of the North.
