Worth a visit

Great place to visit and view If in the area. Best to see on a sunny day or better still at sunrise or sunset.

We managed to find this using a leaflet left in our holiday cottage although the signs from the Hedges hotel leave a lot to be desired! The hedges are very atmospheric but it is spoilt by the parked cars & people in the middle of the road. It's worth seeing if you're in the area

If you're a fan of game of thrones than this is a must see, it's a bit off the beaten track, but definitely worth a visit to this road of beech trees. There is also a ghost story connected to this place, a grey lady (it's always a grey lady!!) who haunts this stretch of the road. I'm sure it... More

No sign posts anywhere. Drove around looking for it then headed on to Carrick a rede and the Giant's Causeway.

During last trip to Ireland, had put The Dark Hedges on our list. However, getting in the neighborhood, could not find any sign to this phenomenon. Have been driving around but couldn't find this beautiful location. We wil have to put it on the next trip !

We visited the Dark Hedges in March when there was no/little foliage on the trees but it was still quite spectacular walking along the road under the thick branches. It would definitely be something else later on in the year with foliage. There is plenty parking about 1/4 mile away but unfortunately some people were parking along the road which... More

This road appears in Game of Thrones as The Kings Road. A must see place for any fan. There is a small area for free parking at one end and a hotel and restaurant at the other end but you can park anywhere along the road if you had to.

Good place to visit, specially if you watch Game of Throne. If you go to Northern Ireland I recommend you to include this place on your trip.

Took the Irish Day Tour to the Dark Hedges. Worth a visit. Beautiful old beech trees create a dramatic setting (so much so, that it was a location of a scene from Game of Thrones). In addition to the road and trees themselves, this is located in the Northern Irish countryside that is quite idyllic. Note: Our guide pointed out... More

We visited on Monday past. I had been before as a child (they were not called the dark hedges then) and enjoyed both walking and driving down the road through the trees. Pity there is not a car park at the site as it was very mucky where I parked the car and I had a disabled person with me... More
