Game of Thrones Doors

We have all seen the world famous Dark Hedges, also known to Game of Thrones fans, the Kings Road. In 2016, Northern Ireland was hit by Storm Gertrude which destroyed a number of trees from this beloved site. In reaction to this, Discover Northern Ireland set out to preserve history by carving the felled trees into 10 doors. These doors were intricately carved to depict a scene from each episode of Season 6. Each door is now on display in 10 pubs and inns across Northern Ireland, providing a unique GOT exhibition unlike any other. The doors are each located near iconic film locations giving you a reason to go and somewhere to catch your lunch! Here is exactly where to find the doors!

1. The Cuan, Strangford, Co Down

Situated beside Castle Ward, better known to us as Winterfell in Season 1 and Audleys’ Castle, Home of the Frays.

 

2. Fiddler’s Green, Portaferry, Co Down

Situated near Quintin Bay – where one of our favourite Jamie and Bronn scenes were filmed in Season 5.
