Day Trips

Visit Stunning Nature and Game of Thrones Film Locations in Northern Ireland


Take your group on a day trip to the Giant’s Causeway, one of the most stunning sites on the north coast of Ireland and enjoy the breathtaking scenery that Northern Ireland has to offer, as well as some of the Game of Thrones filming locations.

The first stop on your Northern adventure is the Dark Hedges.


Next, your group will head to the Giant's Causeway, one of Ireland’s greatest natural wonders. 50 million years ago, this formation of basalt columns was formed by volcanic eruptions. The causeway has many interesting spots you should definitely explore, such as the Giant's Boot, the Chimney Stacks, the Giant's Gate, and the Honeycomb.


After two hours exploring the natural beauty of the Giant’s Causeway, your group will have some time for lunch before getting on the bus again for a photo stop at the iconic ruins of Dunluce Castle. This 15th-century castle was once home to the MacDonnell clan and is known for giving inspiration to C.S. Lewis. Specifically, the castle of Cair Paravel from "The Chronicles of Narnia" is based on it. But that’s not where the pop culture connections stop: it was also a filming site for Game of Thrones and served as the seat of House Greyjoy of the Iron Islands in the show.
