The first stop will be the picturesque Inch Abbey, which is a large 12th century ruined monastic site and an example of early Gothic architecture. Following the news of Eddard Stark’s death, the North decided to bend the knee to their own Northern King. This is the ruin where King Robb ‘The young wolf’ was crowned ‘The King in the North’.
Next up is Tollymore forest park – Ireland’s oldest pine forest also known as the 'Haunted Forest'. See the very place where the Dire Wolf pups were discovered and where the White Walker ambush took place. This stunning woodland in the heart of the ancient ‘Kingdom of Mourne’ is most famous for the place the Starks first found their Dire Wolf pups. Other scenes include the mysterious Wildling massacre from episode 1. You’ll also see Jon and Tyrion’s tree where they discuss life at the Wall.
Lunch will be taken at a traditional Irish pub with quality good value Irish themed food in a private dining room (not included). You will also get a chance to meet Thor or Odin, the dog actors who played the Starks' direwolves.
Next its on to Castle Ward estate, an 18th century mansion noted for its unique architecture with its historic farmyard having been used as the location of Winterfell. You’ll see the gateway to Winterfell’s court yard plus over 20 locations portraying Westeros, from the Riverlands to battle fields and more. Memorable scenes include Jamie and Brienne of Tarth leaving Rob’s camp on their way to Kings Landing. You’ll see the notorious Twins home of Lord Walder Frey, Tyrion and Bron’s first meeting after their trial in The Eyrie. View the tree under which King Rob Stark and Tulisa said their wedding vows.
This is the final location before it’s time to escape back to Belfast and to your own world before any more chance of harm befalls you.
