HBO’s award-winning television series Game of Thrones combines the cut and thrust of medieval warfare with murder, mysticism, and intrigue. The battle for control of The Iron Throne and Seven Kingdoms of Westeros has captured the imagination of fans all over the world. Just as Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings used various locations across New Zealand, so too HBO turned their focus to Northern Ireland, with extensive filming representing everything from Winterfell to the King’s Road, The Iron Islands to Stormlands.
Now, with Platinum NI, you too can stand on the spot where Lannisters’ schemed, and stroll in the footsteps of Starks. We can help plot a path for you through the scenic splendor of the Seven Kingdoms, taking you to where many of the pivotal scenes were shot. Leading locations include Cushendun Caves (in the village of the same name), where HBO filmed Melisandre giving birth to the shadow baby. As we hug the dramatic County Antrim coastline have camera at the ready as you cast your eyes on Murlough Bay, Larrybane, and the ‘challenging’ Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. The latter, a bridge suspended across a gaping chasm, was used as a backdrop, together with computer generated images; whilst Murlough and Larrybane were transformed into Pyke Island and Stormlands. Further along the coastal route takes us to Ballintoy Harbour, where an increasingly tight, twisting road leads you to, what for fans, will be a familiar site – Lordsport Harbour, scene of Theon Greyjoy’s homecoming. Another highly popular destination is The Dark Hedges, a hauntingly beautiful avenue of warped beech trees that was used to depict Kingsroad.
Portstewart, with its charming promenade, also boasts one of the best stretches of golden sand in Ireland. The Strand and its surrounding sand dunes became the Kingdom of Dorne in Season 5. A few short miles away stands the iconic Mussenden Temple, perched on the cliff top above Downhill Strand. It was where Lady Melisandre burned the Seven Gods of Westeros in sacrifice. A few yards from the entrance/exit of Downhill is a steeply ascending road to Bienvenagh (An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). The panoramic views are spectacular, and provided HBO with a location for Dothraki, Daenerys, and the occasional dragon.
