Storms End...Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Last weekend Dave & I decided to visited a Game of Thrones film location. It was the first full Saturday we have spent together this year as Dave has been studying for exams. We wanted to make the most of the day and explore somewhere new & where better than a Game of Thrones location!!
This is Murlough Bay in Co Antrim it becomes the Iron Islands in season three of Game of Thrones. It is also the spot where Davos Seaworth gets shipwrecked after the battle of Blackwater Bay.
If you are ever visiting Northern Ireland this is definitely somewhere I would recommend. Its so beautiful and wild you can see why it would be perfect for a backdrop to any film or tv show. Maybe visiting in February wouldnt be the best time as although these photos look sunny and warm it was bloody freezing!!
Dave & I thought over the spring/summer months we would try and visit all the locations based in Northern Ireland and share our adventures here on the blog. :) Next we are thinking of visiting the Riverun or Winterfell locations.
The beach at Murlough Bay may also be familiar to GOT fans, right here they filmed the scene where Theon Greyjoy rides the horse with his sister Yana. Pretty cool.. I love that more things like this are happening in Northern Ireland. It gets a bad rep sometimes and although we have had a rather checkered past for such a small country we make up for it with our beautiful scenery, good pubs and friendly locals.
