Field trip, Social event
Organised by:
Earth Science Week 2015, Geological Survey of Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland Regional Group
Meet at Queen's University, University Rd, Belfast BT7 1NN
Event status:

Northern Ireland’s amazingly diverse rocks and landscapes are used as the main filming location for HBO’s fantasy drama series Game of Thrones. Why not join us for a bus trip with a difference as we explore these landscapes and find out how they formed and how they were used in the series. 

A joint initiative of GSNI and the Northern Ireland Regional Group, the tour will concentrate on the geology of these sites and the surrounding landscape, but also on how and why these locations were chosen for filming. Locations will include Carnlough, Cairncastle, Cushendun Caves, Murlough Bay, Ballintoy Harbour, Carrickarede and Downhill.
