The Causeway Coast and Glens are home to several locations for Game of Thrones fans including the Caves of Cushendun, Ballintoy Harbour and the Dark Hedges.

Thanks to a 20-minute trip on the Foyle Ferry you have more time to visit the beaches along the North Antrim and North West coasts, each waiting to have sand castles built on them. There are also lots of real castles and scenery to admire including; Malin Head (the stunning most northerly point in Ireland); Horn Head (a Special Area of Conservation); Torr Head and of course Northbur, Glenveigh, Dunluce; Derry’s City Walls and Mussenden Temple.

The Causeway Coast and Glens are home to several Game of Thrones filming including the Caves of Cushendun, Ballintoy Harbour and the Dark Hedges. Along the coast in Donegal, Malin Head is so breathtaking, Star Wars filmed the final sequence of “The Force Awakens” with the re-appearance of Luke Skywalker in the final scene. The franchise returned to film again for “The Last Jedi”.

The Foyle Ferry connects a plethora of new (and long established) brewing establishments and a multitude of terrific places to eat, drink and enjoy local hospitality. Surfers, golfers, cyclists, hill walkers, heritage fans and families looking for fun and adventure – all travel on the Foyle Ferry, which runs from June through to mid September.

All your summer relaxation and fun is catered for either side of Lough Foyle and beyond.
