  • This was a nice location to drive past while on the way to our hotel. It was breathtaking to look at, although even in March there were many tourists there and cars drove around the sites quickly. Per...  more »
  • How were the week before Easter there. Unfortunately, it was not particularly green. The trees are beautiful, but unfortunately very crowded and the buses and cars Park unfortunately in the street, so beautiful photos are difficult. Very early in the very late when few visitors there are, and the light is good, it is worth. Tip: Park in the hotel car park is free of charge, blocked the road and are only 2 minutes on foot.

  • The dark hedges is one of the most picturesque roads in Ireland. Whilst always known throughout the Island it has recently achieved a level of fame due to the recent exposure and use as a location for the popular television show Game of Thrones. There is no designated parking to enable a visit and the road is still used for local traffic flows. Unfortunately recent storms have take their toll on the trees lining the road and a few have been downed. Visit early before the crowds arrive.
  • I wouldn't be paying ridiculous amount of money to see a free attraction! It's on a public road for all to see, you can just pull in and take pictures, it was quiet busy, lots of tourists etc it's creep, but really cool to see. And that's me saying this even though I have never even watched one episode of GOT! We just dropped by after seeing the causeway
  • We stopped here within our tour. The road is nice, the trees are impressive but I wouldn't rate it as a highlight. There are many other wonderful places, but if you are around then it's still worth a visit.
  • The place is famous from GOT scene. It is beautiful. We had to go to Ballymoney from Belfast. We booked a local cab from outside train station and headed Dark hedges. While coming back, we asked the The Dark Hedges Hotel team to call and book a can for us.
  • Very neat and picturesque trees. Get there early though, before all of the Game of thrones tour buses start dumping people there. That way you can get some pics without a million people in them.
