With your tour guide like John, you’ll also be getting rich history lessons as you walk through stunning sites.


Discover Ireland’s Landscape With the
Game of Thrones Tour

One of the most captivating aspects of Game of Thrones is its stunning filming locations, and for good reason. Ireland was selected for its naturally beautiful landscapes, which perfectly capture the Seven Kingdom’s essence. From the rugged coastlines to the lush forests, every location is a visual feast. On your private day tour, you’ll visit some of these iconic sites and see first-hand why they were selected.

To County Down We Go!

On your private day tour, you’ll visit some of these iconic sites and see first-hand why they were selected. This private tour offers an optional add-on that will have you cheering louder than a Khaleesi victory speech: a visit to County Down, including the Game of Thrones Studio Tour and Castle Ward, also known as Winterfell.

Castle Ward: Winterfell Beckons

Imagine yourself walking through the same grounds that housed the Starks!  Castle Ward, a stunning 18th-century estate, was transformed into the iconic Winterfell for the show.  Explore the courtyard where Robb Stark rallied his bannermen, stand where Ned Stark dispensed justice, and maybe even peek through the broken tower where Bran first discovered his Stark-warg powers (just be careful not to get too close to the ledge!).

More Than Filming Game of Thrones

This tour isn’t just about Game of Thrones, it’s also about Ireland’s history and culture. Ireland has ancient castles and historical villages that added another layer of intrigue to the show. Steeped in history, this place is enjoyable and informative for everyone, not just GOT fans. The scenic beauty and cultural significance of each stop make it a tour you won’t want to miss.

The Impact on Northern Ireland

Before Game of Thrones, Northern Ireland wasn’t a major tourist destination. But after the show, people could book their tickets fast enough! As tourism boomed in Northern Ireland, a rise in economic benefits and a renewed sense of pride in local communities were seen.
