Game of Thrones & the Dark Hedges 

 The Dark Hedges is a beautiful avenue of beech trees planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century.
It was intended as a compelling landscape feature to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House.
Two centuries later, the trees remain a magnificent sight and have become one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland.
The iconic trees have been used as a filming location in HBO’s epic series Game of Thrones, representing the King’s Road.

Giant’s Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. It is located in County Antrim on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland.

It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986, and a national nature reserve in 1987 by the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland. The tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea. Most of the columns are hexagonal, although there are also some with four, five, seven or eight sides. The tallest are about 12 meters (39 ft) high, and the solidified lava in the cliffs is 28 meters (92 ft) thick in places.

Ballintoy the village is located about one kilometer from Ballintoy Harbour, a small fishing harbour located at the end of a very small, narrow, steep road down Knocksaughey hill, The village was used for the fictional town of Lordsport in the Isle of Pyke in the television series Game of Thrones.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge is a famous rope bridge near Ballintoy. The bridge links the mainland to the tiny island of Carrickarede, It spans 20 meters (66 ft) and is 30 meters (98 ft) above the rocks below.
The bridge is mainly a tourist attraction and is owned and maintained by the National Trust. The bridge is open all year round (subject to weather) and people may cross it for a fee.
