“Winter is coming!”
– Ned Stark, season one, episode one
Whilst the hugely popular Game of Thrones TV series, adapted from George Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, is filmed all over Europe, many of the key locations are based in the North Coast of Ireland.
Stop at Carnlough featured in Series 6 and visit the caves Melisandre gives birth in. Head off to the caves where Melisandre of Asshai gave birth to her ‘shadow assassin’, who then went on to slay Renly Baratheon. Remember that the night is dark and full of terrors.
Visit Renly’s encampment, cross a rope bridge and visit Lordsport
Your journey continues with a visit to the Camp of Renly Baratheon of Storm’s End and gives you the chance to cross the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. The next destination is Lordsport, the port town on the island of Pyke, in the Iron Islands, to witness where Theon Greyjoy would return to his family and betray those who raised him.
