What You Can Expect

'Game of Thrones' and Giant's Causeway Tour from Belfast

See sights linked to the 'Game of Thrones' TV series!

Hop aboard your coach at your central Belfast hotel, and travel along the scenic Causeway Coastal Route. As you travel north, your guide will talk to you about the popular Game of Thrones TV series, adapted from George Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels.

Stop in the town of Cushendun and walk to the caves where Melisandre of Asshai gave birth to her ‘shadow baby’ who went on to slay Renly Baratheon. Hear tales of the power struggles, battles and trysts between the noble families of Westeros, and learn all about the exploits of King Joffrey Baratheon.

Travel by coach to Ballycastle to see where Varys was born as a slave in the Free Cities, and after stretching your legs on a stroll, travel to the Dark Hedges road. With its natural archway of intertwined trees, the road is one of Northern Ireland’s most photographed locations and the place where Arya Stark dressed as a boy to escape from King’s Landing. Pose for pictures, and then continue your journey north.

The next destination is Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge – an iconic crossing that connects the mainland to Carrick-a-Rede Island. While not used in Game of Thrones, the bridge is framed by magnificent headland that provided a backdrop for several scenes. After a quick photo stop, continue to the fishing village of Ballintoy for lunch (own expense), and then travel to the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway,

While the location hasn’t been used in Game of Thrones, the site is the Causeway Coast’s showpiece, and it’s well worth visiting while in the area. Walk around admiring the hexagonal rock columns and gaze out at the crashing waves along the dramatic coastline.

Board your coach and travel back to Belfast, your tour then finishes in the early evening in the center of Belfast.

OH MY GOD - the amount we got through in the one day was fantastic. Our driver Derek was brilliant - so knowledgeable but also pointed out points of interest and history along the way. Really good laugh - with his own jokes along the way! Whole day was amazing money really well spent I just can't recommend it highly enough!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This tour was amazing. Our guide, Derek, was extremely knowledgeable about both the history and myths surrounding the different sites northern Ireland. He was also very funny and made the long bus ride very enjoyable, and also made each stop much more memorable as we had random facts to help us remember them better.
Every stop we made on this tour was worth seeing, even if you're not a Game of Thrones fan, as the scenery along the coast of Antrim is just so unique and beautiful. The highlights for me were the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge, the Giant's Causeway, and the Dark Hedges. I would highly recommend crossing the bridge even if you are a little hesitant my friend and I were a few of the only ones from our bus who did it, since it is such a thrilling experience and you will be rewarded with gorgeous views of the cliffs from the island you cross to. Just be aware that it is a bit of a trek and you will probably be exhausted afterward. It is totally worth it, though.

Went on the Game of Thrones/Giant's Causeway Tour and it was fantastic. Well worth the money. All the spots were more impressive than I thought they'd be as someone who isn't the biggest GoT fan anyway. Our guide Patrick made the entire thing worthwhile though. Informative, funny and extremely patient, he was almost the best part about it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Tour was excellent with the beauty of the Antrim Glens combined with the scenery and film locations of the game of thrones. What made the trip entertaining was the driver Derek, he was extremely knowledgeable about GoT and the history of northern Ireland. Would recommend this trip to everybody

Abholung erfolgte direkt am Hotel hier muss man mit Überpünktlichkeit rechnen -
Patrick ist ein super Guide und Fahrer, gibt viele Informationen, redet aber auch nicht zu viel und ist sehr unterhaltsam. Vor der Besichtigung der Drehorte zeigt er kurze Szenen der Serie, damit man den Ort einordnen kann. Auch für Nicht-Fans ist die Tour empfehlenswert, da der Giant's Causeway ebenfalls sehr beeindruckend ist und man hier genügend Aufenthaltszeit hat. Patrick bietet noch zusätzliche Extras an, die kostenpflichtigen Aktivitäten sind natürlich optional. Sehr empfehlenswert!
