It was here on the windswept Antrim Plateau that Game of Thrones kicked off in dramatic fashion with Ned Stark beheading the Night’s Watch deserter, witnessed by Jon Snow, Theon Greyjoy, and the Stark brothers Robb and Bran; and where Catelyn captures Tyrion Lannister whom she suspects of trying to kill her son.

The Caves at Cushendun were formed over a period of 400 million years and extreme weather conditions in Ireland. They are found just beyond the beautiful coastal village of Cushendun and we access them by foot next to the Bay Hotel and Cave House.

Located along the stunning North Coast close to Carrick-Rede Rope Bridge, this area is exceptional in is natural beauty. Larrybane headland, which once stretched out towards Sheep Island and had a promontory fort on the top dating to 800AD, had large caves underneath which once served as home to boat builders and a safe resting place from winter storms. Despite having been quarried in the 1950′s this quarry is still worth a visit for its exceptional views. Our Fans will recognise this location as Storm’s End, the bridge itself takes a bit of courage to undertake, and does require a modest level of fitness down and back again to the stones and thrones tour bus.
Larrybane is a natural plateau surround by limestone walls which was the perfect location for a combat tournament. Here is where a masked Brienne bests Sir Loras in armed cobat peaking the interst of Cateyln Stark.

Did the "Stones and Thrones" tour last weekend, which highlighted the shooting locations for Game of Thrones as well as some other great locations around Northern Ireland. Overall, a fantastic experience. Tour guide was an extra on the show and was clearly very engaged, gave us a ton of great insight into the show. Very relaxed, never felt hurried, Best tour I've ever been on, hands down.
la caminata de 1 km hasta el puente de cuerda Carrick-a-rede (¡prepárense, no es para ancianos o para aquellos que tienen problemas para caminar!) ... no hace falta decir que estaba muy asustado de ese puente, pero lo hice, bueno tuve que mi hermano menor lo estaba haciendo jajaja, como se ve delante de mí en la foto. Los paisajes alrededor de la costa son increíbles, una belleza para mirar, lo hará de nuevo cuando regrese a Irlanda.
I took this bus tour to undertake some tourism research for my dissertation! The guys selling the tickets where lovely when waiting for the coach and answered all my questions! The tour itself was great with the opportunity to see The north coast (which I had never seen in such detail fully guided history explained) with lovely views! The commentater was very informative and is guaranteed to make you laugh! Would definatly recommend this tour, also made some friends from around the world.
