Ireland:  The Perfect Fit for Game of Thrones

From Winterfell to Storm’s End, from the King’s Road to the Haunted Forest, there’s a wild variety of film locations.  As you delve deeper into the world of Westeros, you’ll come across extraordinary scenery, breathtaking coastal vistas, and a wealth of ways to immerse yourself in this mystic world.  Prepare for castles and earthy Irish-speaking folks who hold the secrets of time.

Imagine 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, some 39 feet high and 92 feet thick, stepping down to the ocean and disappearing into the sea.  This is the other-worldly Giant’s Causeway.  (If it gets a bit much, the UNESCO site is only a few miles from Bushmills.)  After a shot of courage, consider the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge above 2,000-foot-high sea cliffs.  Northern Ireland was home to the ancient Kings of Ulster.  We like to think they were just waiting for a new kingdom to arrive.
