If you can’t wait for Summer 2017 for the new season of Game Of Thrones to come out (we can’t either), why not appease your appetite this winter (because winter is, in fact, coming) with the ultimate Game Of Thrones Ireland vacation? We’ve put together the perfect itinerary to make you feel like a true Dothraki with a magical Ireland experience.
- Inch Abbey. First on the list is Inch Abbey, which is where Hooster Tully’s funeral was filmed. This ruined monastic site has a history of being plundered by Vikings and was home to monks in the late 1100’s.
- Riverrun. Your next stop is Riverrun, where the Robs victory was set during season one of GOT. With rolling greens, beautiful lakes, accommodations and restaurants, you might never want to leave this well-known setting!
- Winterfell. Of course, no Games Of Thrones roadtrip would be complete without a trip to Winterfell, home of Audleys Tower. You’ll remember the tower from season one when the king and his troupe arrived at Winterfell. Going for the name alone is enough of a reason to make a visit!
- The Haunted Forest. The next stop on your list is The Haunted Forest: a GOT must for any Ireland vacation. Properly named Tollymore Forest Park, you’ll remember this seemingly beautiful forest from when the Night’s Watch stumbled upon a White Walker. Although we can’t promise any White Walker sightings, the area is lush and beautiful with many gorgeous bridges and gates and caves to explore.
- Audley’s Field. Audley’s Field is the next stop on your list, home to Robb Stark’s camp. The three story stone tower overlooks Strangford Lough and is one of thousands of small, stone structures in the Irish countryside. These types of buildings housed lesser lords and gentrys and apparently, Robb Stark, too.
We’re guessing you’re not going to just want to see the Game Of Thrones filming sites while you’re in Ireland, so we’ve also put together a comprehensive accommodation and entertainment guide for you that goes along with your GOT road trip here. Check it out here.
