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.

I loved every part of this tour. Sean was a great tour guide and let us spend an adequate amount of time at each attraction. He gave great history and entertained the group well. I especially loved seeing the Dark Forest, Giant's Causeway and the cave. We spent a total of 18 days touring Ireland and I would rate this tour my favorite day. I highly recommend to everyone!!!

I have never watched an episode of Game of Thrones, but it was so breathtaking to see the places in the series. It doesn't matter if you're a fan or not, the scenery is worth every penny!

Excellent tour by Mccombs. Our tour guide was Derrick - very humorous/entertaining guide - kept us well entertained in the bus. I've never watched the TV series but know somethings about it. Even not really knowing anything at all about the book or TV series - the tour is amazing. Incredibly scenic coastal drive, and each stops were amazing. One thing to note - many of the stops - you need to walk a bit to enjoy - so just keep that min mind. You can obviously decide not to walk - but you'll miss out.

Derrick is awesome - he customized the trip a bit, cutting out long break for lunch, so we can actually visit more places. Also he kept us entertained during the entire journey - which made it an amazing tour. Definitely a must do if you go to belfast.

Fantastic trip. The guide Derek was brilliant - full of energy and information. We saw some beautiful scenery as well as the advertised locations and were even able to do the Carrick a rede rope bridge. Great for GOT fans but much more to the trip than just these locations.

I loved this Tour! Derik the tour guide was amazing. He made the tour, was very friendly, funny and gave lots of history about each site. It was a great way to see northern Ireland, it was not rushed and had time to walk to them sites, take lots of pictures and go to the next location! Would recommend this to anyone!

This was one of the best day trips we ever had and apart from the beautiful and interesting places included in the tour, our guide Derek Gordon was one of the best we ever had. This guy is a huge asset to any tourist operator and is highly recommended. Thanks Gordon. It was indeed a great tour and we thoroughly enjoued your informative information and comments.

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!

Our tour guide Patrick was the best ever . He was so helpful and careing .

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.
