Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland

As a key filming location for HBO’s hit fantasy drama Game of Thrones, Northern Ireland has stepped into the spotlight in recent years, proving that it’s much more than just Ireland’s diminutive neighbor.

Season 6 is due to premiere in April 2016, so there’s no better time to take a Game of Thrones tour of Northern Ireland and discover wonders like the UNESCO-listed Giant’s Causeway, the Dark Hedges road and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge. The capital is full of highlights too, with recently opened tourist attractions including the Crumlin Road Gaol, the Titanic Belfast and the SS Nomadic, and the WWI warship HMS Caroline set to open its deck to visitors in 2016. That’s not all—vibrant Belfast is also renowned for its glittering waterfront, fascinating murals and electric nightlife.
