Photograph The Dark Hedges

The Dark Hedges, Ballymoney is the most photographed location in Northern Ireland. Even the wildly popular Game of Thrones has popped over to the Dark Hedges to film a scene at this eerily beautiful road.

As they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House, it was intended as a compelling landscape feature to impress visitors. The trees remain a magnificent sight two centuries later and have become one of Northern Ireland's most photographed natural phenomena. In fact, in HBO's epic series Game of Thrones ®, representing the Kingsroad, the iconic trees were used as a filming location. 

Featured Scene: Season 2, Episode 1: The North Remembers–Arya Stark escaped from King's Landing on King's Road, disguised as a boy. She's in a cart with Yoren, Gendry, Hot Pie and others who go north on the Kingsroad to join the Night's Watch. Find out about other Northern Ireland Game of Thrones ® Filming Locations at

There is limited parking at the entrance to the road so best to park over the road at the golf club and it is then a short walk through the grounds to The Dark Hedges and make sure you get there early morning to avoid tourist buses as they will ruin the amazing photographs. (Around 10:30 am this places was overrun with giant tour busses and people climbing the trees. )
