Glass of Thrones

To celebrate 10 years of filming in Northern Ireland, Tourism Ireland commissioned the creation of six stained glass windows depicting some of the show's most iconic scenes. Each window represents a different house or legacy: the Starks, Lannisters, Baratheons, Targaryans, White Walkers and the Iron Throne. The windows are located throughout Belfast.

Doors of Thrones

When some of the trees of the famous Dark Hedges blew over during a violent storm (Storm Gertrude), the fallen trees were carved into 10 intricately crafted doors - each telling the story of an episode from Season 6. Make sure to pick up a passport to collect your stamp as you visit each door.

The Tapestry

A 90-meter long tapestry that depicts every show of all 8 seasons - the most epic scenes. The tapestry was hand-woven and hand-embroidered using linen sourced from one of the last surviving linen mills in Northern Ireland.
