Welcoming news that Tourism Ireland has joined forces with smash hit television series ‘Game of Thrones’ in a new Tourism advertising campaign, Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham said: “This is will be a major boost for local tourism and offers a unique opportunity to promote our area, the home of much of the Game of Thrones series, in a brand new way to the many fans around the world.

“Staff in Ballycastle’s Visitor Information Centre have reported increased interest from international visitors in local beauty spots which featured in the series such as the picturesque North Coast harbour of Ballintoy harbour, Larrybane Quarry and the Dark Hedges.”

Cllr Cunningham continued: “We now have the opportunity to promote the local area in markets across the world. Game of Thrones fans worldwide will see the Tourism Ireland promotion of the landscapes and locations featured in the series and inspire them to come and explore them for themselves.”
