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.

day well spent, loved getting to see the rope bridge and giant's causeway in addition to GoT locations. tour guide derrick was awesome!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Brilliant day - I've never watched G.o.T but was travelling with an avid fan, so was a bit wary about being bored etc. But no chance, great scenery, Tour guide/driver - Derek - highly knowledgeable about a vast range of things related to area, history, culture as well as G.o.T for lovers of the books/series, and lovely sense of humour. 2nd tour I've done with McCombs in past year, and won't be the last, can highly recommend them

Patrick was a fantastic tour guide. There was so much more on this trip than we expected. Absolutely beautiful countryside and coastline, and interesting, unusual sights.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

It was money and time well spent. Dereck, our tour guide/driver, ensured that we would have the one of the best experiences we'll ever have in Northern Ireland. He entertained us with jokes skillfully interspersed with facts about each place we visited. This really is a an experience not to be missed when in Belfast! :

Really Good

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

We were blessed with lovely weather which always helps but even without the glorious sunshine this tour would take some beating. It's a full day and takes in not only the GOT locations but travels along the most scenic coastal roads in Northern Ireland. Derek the joke telling driver added to it all.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Very well run trip. The geography is of course beautiful, but our guide was also excellent: knowledgeable and funny. You'll learn a lot about medieval Irish history!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

This tour really exceeded our expectations! While the GOT sights were interesting, the highlights were the views of the coastline! Just beautiful. Derrick was engaging, albeit a little to talkative for our liking.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Fantastic tour given by driver/guide Derek of some of the locations used in Game of Thrones including Ballintoy Harbour, Cushendall Caves and the Dark Hedges. Giant's Causeway is a natural wonder and the gorgeous countryside is a visual feast for your eyeballs! A great way to see a lot in one day.
