Great place, but a "photo-shot war"to get in front to get a picture with only few people on it. But if you can view this without all those busses and people, It's quite a view :-)

If you go, definitely plan on walking the whole road to get the best effect. I really enjoyed this; it was worth the drive!

This tree lined avenue is amazing. Well worth a detour. You can park in the hotel for free and a 5 minute walk (literally) you are at the bottom of the avenue. Walk the length of the drive as you get a different perspective from either end. There is a small layby at the top with space for 3 or... More

This avenue of Beech trees is simply magnificent and used to be the approach drive to Gracehill Manor. The Dark Hedges feature in a number of episodes of The Game of Thrones and when 2 or 3 trees were blown over in the storms of 2014, some of the resultant wood was used to manufacture 10 stunning doors with superbly...

Game of Thrones aside, this is the kind of view I would like to photograph. We travelled down at lunch time and it was relatively free of people. It is a road, and some people seem to be oblivious of the cars trying to get up and down and are more concerned with taking photos than paying attention to the... More

The road to King's Landing was pretty spectacular. The trees' formation causes an eerie sense of unrest but is also very atmospheric. We drove here following our GPS and it was a beautiful, countryside drive with beautiful views. Highly recommend if you're coming back from Giant's Causeway.

When you eventually find The Dark Hedges you might think well they are not as good as the pictures portray - and they are not. However if you take photos and look at those they do look better and more like what is advertised. I do understand that they have lost a few trees. Not however for us an awe... More

We went to see the dark hedges and stopped off at Gracehill House for an amazing dinner. Highly recommend both! Gracehill House has one of the famous dark hedges doors and there is now a passport that each venue will stamp for you. Gotta catch'em all!

The Dark Hedges have long been a natural wonder of Northern Ireland, but have found new fame with the filming of Game of Thrones. The road is small, so it is better to park at either end and walk through the trees as this will also give you the best views. During the peak summer months there are a lot... More
