Game of Thrones’ Sean Bean celebrates his 62nd Birthday!

Published

on

It has been 10 years since Game of Thrones first aired on HBO. The show’s graphic scenery was simply breathtaking. Most of the locations where the series was filmed are in Northern Ireland. There was once a time when tourists flocked over to these destinations. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has left these places deserted. Let’s relive some of these beautiful sites in the pictures below!

1. Larrybane Quarry, Larne

This retired quarry first introduced us to Brienne of Tarth, King Renly and his wife Margery Tyrell in season two.

2. Fairhead, Ballycastle

Dragonstone

Northern Ireland’s tallest cliff face worked perfectly for Dragonstone. Jon Snow finally met Daenerys and her dragons here.

3. Saintfield, Co. Down

Battle of the Bastards/Battle of Winterfell

Hidden amongst the lush green pastures in the peaceful village of Saintfield, sits two landmark spots – specifically, the battlefields for the Battle of the Bastards and the Battle of Winterfell. Empty aside from a few barns, with a little imagination and a lot of CGI, these fields were once filled with giants and White Walkers.

4. Sallagh Braes, Antrim

sallagh-braes-antrim-8599034

You’ll recognise the landscape from season 6, episode 7: The Broken Man, when the Hound was rescued by a band of villagers in the Riverlands after his brutal beating/stabbing by Brienne of Tarth and Arya Stark.

5. Shillanavoghy Valley, Antrim
