A Game of Thrones Tour of Antrim

Game of Thrones is one of the most popular tv shows ever made. Produced by HBO and based on books written by G.R.R. Martin, the epic fantasy tales have been primarily filmed in Northern Ireland, with the counties of Antrim and Down featured on the first page of the location scout's address book.

As you might know if you follow my Twitter or Facebook pages, I have been writing recently for The Culture Trip and Untapped Cities. After a few photo articles for The Culture Trip on Kilkenny and Armagh, I have recently written two touring guides to the best locations used in Game of Thrones.

County Antrim is the subject of my first touring guide - the Antrim Coast Road is one of the world's great drives, with the views of Scotland and the multi-layered geology that has created such famous landmarks as the Giant's Causeway, it is no surprise that the landscapes in this part of Ireland are often seen on screens around the world.

I am now taking bookings for my Antrim photography experiences - known to some as photography classes, workshops or tours. With one, two and three day options available and all levels catered for, there has never been a better time to see the beauty of Northern Ireland and the locations featured in Game of Thrones.

Some of the key locations are my personal favourite photography locations in Ireland, from the Dark Hedges to Dunluce Castle and Cushendun.
