Game of Thrones ® Tour off the beaten track filming locations
Book this tour to set foot on the actual locations where the Game of Thrones ® scenes were filmed, seeing where the cast, countless crew and support staff filmed and set up camp to capture the series’ incredible footage.
Off the Beaten Track
Our private guided tour allows you to visit the places that most GAME OF THRONES ® tourists simply cannot reach from the large coaches. Ballycastle is right at the very heart of many of the North Coast and Glens filming locations, less time is spent travelling between sites.
The Dragonstone Cliffs at Fair Head
Visit the Dragonstone Cliffs to walk along the top of the dramatic 600ft Fair Head cliffs to see the awesome landscape and seascape outlooks and go on a ‘dragon hunt’ – sightings unfortunately not guaranteed!
23 Million Viewers per Episode!
View the amazing scenery and breathtaking surroundings. You will easily understand why HBO chose theNorth Coast and Glens for the back drop for Game of Thrones ® – the biggest TV show in the world!
