The Cathedral Quarter is packed full of fascinating architecture, from public buildings to renovated warehouse restaurants and last but not least the Queens Quarter is alive with shops, cafes, bars, live venues and the Botanical Gardens.
Giants Causeway & Game of Thrones
Today we take you to see the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is The Giants Causeway. The Visitor Centre is our first stop where you can learn all about the amazing natural wonder before seeing it for yourself. Next we travel along the Causeway Coastal Route to see the first of today's Game of Thrones filming locations and Duncluce Castle (Castle Greyjoy) where we stop for photo's before arriving in the lovely seaside town of Portstewart in time for lunch. Portstewart Strand is a beautiful beach here, and was used for filming in Season 5 of the TV Series too. On the return journey we travel through the countryside and stop at The Dark Hedges (Kings Road) near Ballymoney where you can walk along just as a young Arya Stark did! Stopping at Gracehill House here, which is lucky enough to house Door No7 of the Game of Thrones collection. Perfect photo opportunity for fans and a wee break for teas/coffees too!
Our visit today is to Donegal Full of Irish charm and character, home to ‘The Diamond’, a monument dedicated to the four authors of ‘The Annuals of the Four Masters’. You will have time to wander around the shops or visit the Donegal Castle, built in the 15th century by O’Donnell chieftains.
