Game of Thrones Tour: Staying at The Bushmills Inn

 Historic Retreat in the Heart of Westeros

The Bushmills Inn, a quietly luxurious boutique hotel, is steeped in Irish history. Originally a Coaching Inn in the 1600s, it has been lovingly restored, paying homage to its rich past. The hotel exudes an old-world charm, with inglenook turf fires and hayloft snugs, providing a perfect retreat for those who crave the unconventional.

The Bushmills Inn: Your Gateway to the Seven Kingdoms

Located in the village of Bushmills, home to the world's oldest Whiskey Distillery, The Bushmills Inn sits between the famous Giant's Causeway and Royal Portrush Golf Club. But what makes it a must-visit for Game of Thrones fans is its proximity to several filming locations from the series.

The Dark Hedges

Just a short drive from the hotel, the Dark Hedges, known to fans as the Kingsroad, is a stunning avenue of beech trees that were planted in the 18th century. This atmospheric location was used in Season 2 when Arya Stark escaped from King's Landing.


Ballintoy, a small village with a charming harbour, was transformed into the Iron Islands in the series. Here, you can walk the same grounds as Theon Greyjoy and his sister Yara.

Downhill Beach

Downhill Beach, known in the series as Dragonstone, is where the old gods were burned and Melisandre, the Red Priestess, proclaimed: "For the night is dark and full of terrors."


A Night's Rest Fit for a King

After a day of exploring, return to the warmth and comfort of The Bushmills Inn. Each room is unique, blending stunning architecture, beautiful grounds, and modern facilities. The hotel's award-winning restaurant offers fine dining options to satiate your hunger, and the Gas Bar, with its selection of Bushmills' finest malt, is the perfect place to unwind.

Whether you're a Game of Thrones fan eager to explore the real-life Westeros or a traveller looking for a unique and luxurious retreat, The Bushmills Inn offers an experience like no other. So, pack your bags and get ready for an adventure that promises to be as thrilling as the series itself. After all, as they say in the Seven Kingdoms, "When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die." At The Bushmills Inn, we assure you, it's always a win.
