The Causeway Coast and Glens are home to several locations for Game of Thrones fans including the Caves of Cushendun, Ballintoy Harbour and the Dark Hedges.
Along the coast in Donegal, Malin Head is so breathtaking, Star Wars filmed the final sequence of “The Force Awakens” with the re-appearance of Luke Skywalker in the final scene. The franchise returned to film again for “The Last Jedi”.
You will also want to keep returning to Malin Head, the stunning most northerly point in Ireland.
Movie buff or not, you will want to capture the scenery, visitor attractions and heritage right along the Wild Atlantic Way and the Causeway Coastal Route. Walking, cycling, by car or travelling in a tour, the Counties connected by the Scenic Lough Foyle Ferry provide an easy access to stunning views to enjoy and create memories.
Dotted amongst the cliffs and beaches, thousands of years of history hold your attention from Northburg Castle in Greencastle to Grianan of Aileach, a hill fort atop the 801 ft high Greenan Mountain at Inishowen and across to Glenveigh Castle in Glenveigh National Park.
Then heading for the north westerly coast you find Horn Head which forms part of Sheephaven Bay in Dunfanaghy. Horn Head boasts a blow hole, look out towers, stone circles and tombs set in an Irish Natural Heritage Area which boasts a Special Area of Conservation – ideal for bird and nature watching.
On the Magilligan side of the Scenic Lough Foyle Ferry, the fifty miles between Derry’s City Walls across to the rugged coast of Torr Head, takes you through a mix of history, beauty and nature. Enjoy the stunning walks and views at Binevenagh Mountain, and take in the scale of Downhill Demesne and Hezlett House.
As well as Mussenden Temple, Dunluce Castle and the ever surprising Carrick-a-rede rope bridge.
There is so much to see and do throughout the Causeway Coast and Donegal – you could make a movie about it.
