other hotels in Belfast

Welcome to the buzzling city of Belfast! We suggest you start your Game of Thrones Tour of Northern Ireland right here, in the capital of Northern Ireland. There is so much to see in Belfast - you will definitely not get bored. We admit, most of the sights here are not GoT related - but really, who would want to miss the Titanic Museum or a Black Taxi Tour of Belfast City?! While exploring the Titanic Quarter, you will come across the Titanic Film Studios where some of the Game of Thrones scence were filmed. You won't be able to go in an have a peak though, sorry!



 Day 2: County Down Second Night in Belfast

On your second day it is time to head southwards and explore County Down. There a quite a few locations where GoT was shot and we completely understand why: County Down and the Mourne Mountains are stunning! Make sure to visit the following locations:

  • Tollymore Forrest Park, near Newcastle: This is the home of the Wildlings (and the White Walkers...)
  • Inch Abbey, near Downpatrick: backdrop for the "Twins" - Walder Frey's Twin Castles.
  • Castle Ward, near Strangford: Welcome to Winterfell, the home of House Stark. Doesn't look exactly like it did in the show, but you will still get the feeling...

At the end of this exciting day, we'd suggest you return to Belfast and spend a second night at your hotel there.

Day 3: from Belfast to Ballygally Suggested Hotel in Ballygally:
Ballygally Castle Hotel,

So it is time to leave Belfast today and make your way to the Antrim Coast. On the way you should not only enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Glens of Antrim but also the following film locations:

  • Shane's Castle, near Randalstown: A ruin on the shores of Lough Neagh. Was used as location for the Tourney of the Hand in season 1
  • Moneyglass Estate, near Toomebridge: "Red Wedding" - do we need to say more?
  • Shillanavogy Valley, Glens of Antrim: Here was the very first Dothraki Camp in Season1. 
  • Cairncastle: Remember the first ever spisode of GoT? When Ned Stark beheads this Night's Watch deserter? This scene was filmed here. Also the scene where Catelyn Stark captures Tyrion Lannister.

Wanna have a really special overnight stay in Ballygally? Then make sure to stay at the Ballygally Castle Hotel - it's haunted!


Day 4: Ballygally to Derry City (Causeway Coast) Suggested Hotel in Derry City:
Tower Hotel Derry,
from €45pps B&B - Book Here

More Derry Hotels

Phew, this is going to be a long and eventful day. You will be exploring the amazing & breathtaking Causeway Coast. No wonder that many of the Game of Thrones scenes were filmed here.

  • Cushendun Caves: The Red Priestess gave birth to the Shadow Baby in these caves
  • Murlough Bay: One of the most beautiful bays on the Antrim Coast. Theon Greyjoy and Yara were riding here on their way to Pyke
  • Ballycastle: a lovely little village. Parts of it were used as backdrop for the Free Cities where Varys was born.
  • Dark Hedges, near Armoy: Definitely make the 30min detour to Armoy where the Dark Hedges are located. These were popular even before GoT was filmed here. The can be seen in Arya's escape from King's Landing
  • Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge: Another famous attraction on the Causeway Coast. Will you dare to cross the bridge? Carrick-a-Rede was also used as the background for Storm's End (seat of House Baratheon)
  • Ballintoy Harbour: This cute little harbour can be seen in GoT as Lordsport Harbour on the Pyke & Iron Islands
  • Giant's Causeway: The most popular and absolute must-see attraction on the Causeway Coast! Nope, it wasn't in GoT (yet?) - but make sure to visit anyhow!
  • Mussenden Temple & Downhill Strand: Remember the scene in Game of Thrones when the 7 idols of Westeros were burned? This was filmed on Downhill Strand and looking up from the beach, the Mussenden Temple can be seen, too.

End your GoT journey in the lovely town of Derry. We'd recommend to spend an extra day in Derry to explore the former Europen City of Culture and all it has to offer.
