Welcome to the real westeros

HBO’s award-winning television series Game Of Thrones has extensively used the stunning scenery within the Causeway Coast and Glens to represent everything from Winterfell to the King’s Road, the Iron Islands to Stormlands.
Many pivotal scenes were filmed near to the Bayview Hotel which makes it an ideal base to explore Game of Thrones country. Fans of the show can really indulge their fascination for Game Of Thrones whilst investigating what the region has to offer. Welcome to the real wild Westeros

The Stormlands, Larrybane, Carrick-a-rede, Co. Antrim

Located along the stunning North Coast close to Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge lies Larrybane headland, which used to stretch out towards Sheep Island. Its large caves once served as a home to boat builders and a safe haven from winter storms.

Featured Scene:
Larrybane was the dramatic spot chosen for Renly Baratheon’s camp in Season 2. This is where Catelyn Stark agrees a treaty with Renley on behalf of her son Robb. You might remember Renly swearing he will avenge Ned’s death and bring Catelyn Joffrey’s head. And then the drama really starts to unfold.

 

Pyke, The Iron Islands, Ballintoy Harbour, Co. Antrim

Ballintoy is situated in one of the most picturesque parts of the North Antrim Coast between the Giant’s Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. This stunning harbour location has been used for exterior Pyke shots and as the Iron Islands.

Featured Scene:
This picturesque coastal nook is where Theon Greyjoy arrives back in the Iron Islands and where he later admires his ship, the Sea *****. This is also where he first meets his sister Yara.


Storm’s End, Murlough Bay, Co. Antrim

Located in North East County Antrim, Murlough Bay is an awe-inspiring location. Murlough is best known for its outstanding beauty, remoteness and views across the sea to Rathlin Island and the Mull of Kintyre. Plus the cows that sometimes graze along the sandy dunes.

Featured Scene: Murlough Bay becomes the Iron Islands in Season 3. This is the spot where Theon Greyjoy rides on the horse with his sister Yara. It’s also the spot where Davos Seaworth is shipwrecked after the battle of Blackwater Bay.


 

The Stormlands, Cushendun Caves, Co. Antrim

The caves at Cushendun were formed over thousands of years and are a product of extreme weather conditions. They can be found just beyond this beautiful coastal village next to the Cave House.

Featured Scene:
In Season 2, Cushendun is where Melisandre gives birth to the shadow baby after being brought ashore by Davos Seaworthy.

 

dragonstone, downhill beach

One of the most iconic locations, Downhill Beach is an 11km stretch of sand and surf located on the Causeway Coast. This magnificent location is home to Mussenden – a tiny temple perched dramatically on a 120ft cliff top, high above the Atlantic Ocean.

Featured Scene:
Downhill was illuminated and transformed into Dragonstone in Season 2. This is the spot where the old gods burn on the beach, where Stannis pulls the flaming sword and Melisandre chants: “For the night is dark and full of terrors”.
