This six-night Game of Thrones tour, which comprises two days spent exploring Dublin, followed by overnight stays in castles and steak dinners fit for a king, is one for all you die-hard Thronies out there! Start your Game of Thrones adventure with a two-hour walk through Tollymore Forest Park. Northern Ireland’s first state forest park is home to many key scenes in Game of Thrones. Tollymore is where the men of the Night’s Watch first happened upon a White Walker. The park also served as the location where Ned Stark (RIP) discovered the abandoned litter of Direwolves that have proved so integral to the show. 

As is fitting for a show that revolves around a battle for the Iron Throne, castles provide the backdrop for many key scenes in Game of Thrones. Located just forty minutes from Belfast, Castle Ward is home to over twenty areas of interest from the show, including Winterfell Castle and the site of Brandon Stark’s life-changing fall. It is recommended that you spend up to three hours on site in order to fully immerse yourself in the Castle Ward experience, so bring your walking shoes for this one. 

Famished after all that adventuring? One of the highlights of this tour is the Game of Thrones themed food on offer. The menu for the Game of Thrones themed Afternoon Tea at Ballygally Castle on the Causeway Coast includes such delights as Sansa Stark’s Lemon Cakes and Dothraki Trifle with Mini Dragon’s Egg. Evening dining options include a Westeros Tomahawk Steak Dinner of salt-aged Northern Irish Beef Steak on the bone served with a ‘Valyrian Steel’ inspired carving knife. 

No trip to Northern Ireland would be complete without a visit to the Giant’s Causeway. You’ll also visit many key locations from the show situated on the Causeway Coastal Route, including The Dark Hedges, Dunluce Castle and Ballintoy Harbour.

"Great Experience"

Anne

Amanda did an excellent job booking our driving tour. She made arrangements for everything we knew we wanted to see and had suggestions for other great places as well. Accommodations were great. The one slight snag was handled efficiently and completely to our satisfaction. I recommend Authentic Ireland and Amanda. We would certainly use them again.

I cannot express more how amazing the customer service has been with this company. Jocoya has truly gone above and beyond for us. We had a few hiccups in our travel arrangements and with a quick turnaround, she did her absolute best to accommodate us. I would be thrilled to use this company again in the future.


Thank you Jocoya! You are a star!

"Wonderful Ireland Vacation"

Jackie

This specially designed package designed for myself and my granddaughter by Anastasia was perfect! Everything from the rental car to the B & B's and hotel was splendid! The food at our lodging areas was superb!! I needed to contact our customer representative, Anastasia, while we were in Ireland. She responded quickly and it was on the weekend! You cannot ask for better service than that, in my opinion!!! I will definitely book with this company again!!!

"Great way to book your trip"

Joanne

I was very happy with the whole experience. The hotels booked, recommended destinations and sights to see and the rental car all exceeded expectations. It was very easy to book the trip with this company. The consultant I worked with was very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this company.

"Perfect Honeymoon"

Joel

This company gave us the perfect honeymoon that we've been dreaming of. Everything was smooth from the B&B's to the experiences that they've pre-booked, it's as if everything was just waiting for us to come. Can't recommend them enough!

Their customer service was top notch, very personal and will not leave you hanging. They support each other and really want you to get the best experience.

"Beyond our expectations"

Beth

My traveling companions and I were over the moon with excitement upon going to Ireland!!! Michaela, our travel agent, was tremendous in planning the trip according to our hopes and dreams and budget. Our lodging in Enis, County Clare, was a beyond our expectations, so lovely, comfortable and cozy. It was so nice to come home too after our day travels. Ireland is beautiful and stole my heart.

"AMAZING TRIP"

Janna

Our first trip to Ireland could not have been more beautiful or amazing. Alaina went above and beyond to make our trip wonderful for us on very short notice. She assisted with unexpected issues on the fly and found us places with air conditioning, which is not easy. Our 7 night vacation consisted of driving from Dublin and seeing the southern half of the Republic. Each place Alaina arranged for us to stay and each customized adventure was wonderful. We throughly enjoyed the people, culture and beauty. We celebrated our 28th Anniversary with our “dream” vacation. We look forward to our next vacation to see Northern Ireland!

"Authentic trip"

Patty

Our 30th anniversary trip to Ireland was simply wonderful! Jocoya did an awesome job picking all the wonderful places, B&Bs, etc. We felt it truly was an “authentic” Ireland trip. Thank you so much! I will definitely recommend you guys again and again.
