All about the trip
Leaving central Belfast in the morning, the first official stop is The Dark Hedges (around 15 - 20 minutes), known as the location where Arya Stark made her escape down The Kings Road. Journey down the tunnel-like avenue of intertwined beech trees, and spend a few minutes at the site where Arya Stark dressed as a boy to escape from King’s Landing.
Stop at the Giant's Causeway (around 1 hour 30 minutes). Explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site with ample time for discovery. Continue to the Giant's Causeway to enjoy around 1.5 hours exploring the 40,000 interlocking hexagonal stone columns on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Explore the place and hear the legend of Finn McCool. The Causeway consists of 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns formed during a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago.
Onward to Ballintoy Harbour where you will get around one hour to enjoy one of the favorite filming locations on this tour. Experience the scene where Theon comes home for the first time. Your guide will show you where Theon was baptized in front of Balon and Yara, and where Euron was drowned and crowned to be king. The directors of Game of Thrones used this site extensively to film. Enjoy the most beautiful harbour in Ireland and take in the views and reflect on all the magic and mystery of Game of Thrones.
After Ballintoy harbour we will visit Larrybane Quarry. Larrybane Quarry is the site of Renly Baratheon’s Camp of course before he got killed by the Shadow Prince but there Margaery and Renly watch Brienne of Tarth fight Ser Loras Tyrell. Larrybane is one of the most sheltered locations along the north coast. Go back to the Causeway coastal route. Enjoy the beautiful view of islands just off the coast like Rathlin Island, Sheep Island or even Scotland on a nice day.
