Games of Thrones Tours
Wherever you travel in Northern Ireland, you’re sure to experience a taste of our giant spirit, that intangible essence that makes us unique. So, we think it’s fair to say that without our stunning locations, Game of Thrones may have lost some of its unique character and spirit.
These iconic locations became an integral part of the story’s soul and make the ideal itinerary for a Game of Thrones holiday in Northern Ireland. There are 26 filming locations dotted around Northern Ireland, each one as raw and elemental as the series itself.
Even if you don’t know your Dragonstone from your Dothraki, they are a joy to experience in their own right. But if you’re a seasoned Thronie, you will find enough Game of Thrones experiences to keep you enthralled.
Springhill is a 17th-century plantation house in the townland of Ballindrum near Moneymore, County Londonderry in Northern Ireland.

It is open from March to June, and September on weekends, and is open to the public seven days a week during July and August
