Holidays in 'Game of Thrones' country

Immerse yourself in the world of Game of Thrones on an Irish driving tour

Few TV shows have captivated global audiences to the same degree as Game of Thrones. With its gripping storylines and shocking plot twists, the HBO fantasy series has won over even those who aren’t fans of the genre.

As the primary setting for this televisual juggernaut, Northern Ireland is cashing in on its popularity – and rightly so. So if you’ve managed to navigate The Narrow Sea, we suggest taking the seven-night car tour offered by My Holiday Ireland, bookended by stays in Dublin, Belfast and Derry.

Leaving the city, you’ll head to Co. Down and visit Winterfell (aka Castle Ward), Robb Stark’s Camp (Audley’s Field) and The Haunted Forest (Tollymore Forest Park) before hitting the Antrim coast. Here you’ll tour several show locations, including Cairncastle, where Catelyn Stark captures Tyrion Lannister. On day five you’ll drive to Larrybane, the setting for numerous key scenes, including Renly Baratheon’s murder, before discovering Ballintoy Harbour, where Theon Greyjoy’s return to The Iron Islands was shot. Other parts of the itinerary might contain too many spoilers, so we’ll just let you enjoy this epic adventure for yourselves.
