5 Game of Thrones Filming Locations


5 Game of Thrones Filming Locations

It's been a long wait, but winter is finally here! To celebrate the start of season 8 of Game of Thrones, here are 5 filming locations from the series & places to stay nearby. If you know your Baratheons from your Targaryens, we're sure this will have you packing up your bags & planning a Westerosi holiday.

1. The historic farmyard at Castle Ward in County Down was the backdrop for Winterfell in season one. If you visit now you can try out archery & stand in the spots where Jon Snow & Bran once stood! There's also a brilliant gift shop packed full of Game of Thrones-themed items. Stay nearby at Fortwilliam Country House, a charming country house set in 70 acres of lush countryside.

Castle Ward, Co Down
2. When Theon returned to the Iron Islands and was reunited with his sister Yara, he was really sailing into Ballintoy Harbour! Ballintoy is a quaint harbour town which is simply beautiful to explore and gives a real taste of rural Irish life. The Smugglers Inn provides family-friendly accommodation & dining just a short drive away.

Ballintoy Harbour, Co Antrim
3. Dating back to the 12th century, only ruins are left of Inch Abbey in Co Down. Game of Thrones fans will recognise it as where Robb Stark was named the 'King in the North' back in season 1. Many tours in the area take in this magnificent site, with some even providing swords & capes for you to recreate Robb's big moment! The Briers Country House is a family-run B&B in nearby Newcastle & is the ideal base for exploring the area, with a bit of extra luxury thrown in.

Inch Abbey, Co Down
4. The scenic Downhill Strand is well worth visiting, whether you're a Game of Thrones fan or not! It doubled as Dragonstone, where Melisandre burned the old gods and told us that "the night is dark & full of terrors". The knowledgeable staff at Coolmore House are more than happy to suggest other days out & great places to eat nearby.
Downhill Strand, Londonderry
5. Your hosts at Valley View run fabulous tours of the local area, including a trip to the Dark Hedges! Arya, Gendry & Hot Pie travelled here as the setting of the Kingsroad - hopefully your journey will be less eventful that theirs was! The North Antrim Coast is a truly stunning destination for a holiday, with dramatic cliffs & picturesque beaches aplenty.
Dark Hedges, Co Antrim
The last episode may be in sight, but what better way to end this amazing show than a trip to see some of Westeros in the flesh? So whether you're rooting for Daenerys, you just want to find out who the Night King is, or you're hoping Arya finally sticks Cersei with the pointy end, we hope this list has inspired you to plan your own adventure in the Seven Kingdoms!
