Winterfell Castle & Demesne was used extensively by HBO to film the American medieval drama series ‘Game of Thrones’, which is now the biggest TV show in the World. This ancient and magical venue located on the shoreline of Strangford Lough is an essential stop on the itinerary for all visitors to Ireland even if they are not fans of the show.
Now that HBO has finished filming onsite your group can try on costumes from the show, take an entertaining tour of the set locations, get their picture taken with the adorable dogs that starred in the show and who now reside onsite, fire live archery arrows in the movie set just like the cast once did, or take a trip in ancient Viking boats along the demesnes beautiful shoreline.
The piece de resistance of any visit to Winterfell Castle & Demesne is their medieval banquet nights. Your guests are greeted by the Grand Maester at the North Gate and escorted through the courtyard to the Armory & Forge to don their chosen costume, before being shown to their banqueting table – with dimly lit church candles flickering along the far reaching tables; bench seats draped in reindeer skins; smoke billowing from open fireplaces; local traditional music playing in the background; and everyone dressed in costume – this is sure to be the most memorable and fun of dining experiences, that you and your guests will remember for many years to come.
