Ireland’s premier Game of Thrones visitor attraction– just a five minute’s drive from Castle Ward Bunkhouse– is bringing excitement into the tranquil seaside destination of Strangford and the gorgeous estate of Castle Ward- whose subtle gothic demeanor clashes with 18th century class! The attraction gives an opportunity to recreate your favourite Winterfell scenes; from exploring Winterfell Castle, including the tower Bran ‘fell’ from, to walking the hall of the savage Red Wedding, where many favourite characters lost their lives… The resort offers many must-do experiences for any Game of Thrones fan- such as an “archery movie set experience”- have you got Arya’s talent? With Castle Ward Bunkhouse situated on a gorgeous National Trust estate, surrounded by foot and cycle paths, and only one mile from “Winterfell” and only 30 from Ireland’s capital city, Belfast, it the ideal location to discover and experience life in the “North”!Find out more about Castle Ward Bunkhouse
