Game of Thrones® – rooted in Northern Ireland

Discover how one of the most iconic Game of Thrones® filming locations is embedded in Northern Irish history.

The Dark Hedges is a beautiful avenue of 18th century beech trees that features as The Kingsroad in Game of Thrones®. In January 2016 a storm swept the island, bringing down some of the famous 200-year-old trees. The wood from these fallen trees has been salvaged and turned into unique works of art in the form of crafted wooden doors.

Each door has been intricately designed to represent a different Game of Thrones® episode. Using iconic symbols and key scenes from the show, the doors work together to tell the tale of Season 6. 

The doors will be on display in different pubs, cafés and inns across Northern Ireland, with a new location revealed here after every episode. Each one will be situated near an iconic filming location – so if you come across a door, you’ll know you’re in Game of Thrones® territory. 

By the end of the series, all the doors will work together to create a unique exhibition of Season 6, which will be on display across Northern Ireland. There’s so much to explore, from famous filming locations to authentic medieval activities and more.
