Overnight camps are open for guests who want to enjoy visiting the filming sites for more than a day. With 20 in total, there is enough to explore over a two-week holiday if you’re dead set on visiting all of the different filming locations.

 

Game of Thrones has certainly brought ancient sites to the forefront of television. Each season, GoT creators are afforded huge budgets to renovate old castles based on George R.R. Martin’s books.

 

With the ongoing GoT phenomenon, digital companies as well as TV networks have jumped on the bandwagon in terms of using the franchise to make create new innovative products. Gaming companies, in particular, have created games dedicated to the episodes of the show. Telltale Games was one of the first developers to create a fantasy game in line with GoT’s storyline. A casual title by the name of Game of Thrones 243 Ways to Win was also released for the consumption of casual gamers, showcased among the slot titles on recreational site Slingo. More games for the TV show are slated for release this year around the same time as the Season 7 premiere.

    I will admit, I’m not a GOT fan but I can appreciate it. I’ve watched the first couple of seasons so I think I might be able to recognise a couple of these filming locations if I visit. I would love to give archery a go (channelling Oliver Green from “Arrow”).

    • Yes! A lot of the filming locations are also in Spain so if you are there let me know and I can tell you where the locations where 🙂

  • We are huge fans of GOT and this activities look so fun that in a future visit to N. Ireland I will take it in consideration while planning.
