The Dark Hedges Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
The Dark Hedges - Northern Ireland, UK
The Dark Hedges is a captivating natural wonder located in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. This enchanting avenue is adorned with intertwined beech trees that create a mesmerizing tunnel-like pathway. Each tree stretches its branches towards the other, forming a stunning canopy above the road below.
With its hauntingly beautiful appearance, the Dark Hedges has become a popular tourist attraction and a favorite spot for photographers & nature enthusiasts alike. The interplay of light and shadows filtering through the dense foliage adds an ethereal touch to the landscape.
The origins of the Dark Hedges date back to the 18th century when the trees were initially planted as an entrance to Gracehill House. Today, it serves as an emblematic symbol of Ireland's natural beauty & folklore. The site gained international recognition after it was featured in the popular TV series “Game of Thrones”.
From Belfast, you can rent a car or take a taxi to reach. Alternatively, you can use public transportation by taking a train or bus to the nearest town, Ballymoney & then arranging for a taxi or local transportation to the Dark Hedges.

My GOT Fans… The Dark Hedges!
The Dark Hedges is an iconic tourist destination located in Northern Ireland.
This place was made famous by my favorite show - Game of Thrones!
This wonder filled with weirdly shaped trees. It is a stunning avenue of beech trees which have grown together.
You can join a countryside tour of Northern Ireland to get to the Dark Hedges. Then you can walk along the road and take pictures of the magnificent scenery. The site is close to other attractions, such as the Giant's Causeway, which are also worth visiting.
The Dark Hedges is a must-see for nature lovers and Game of Thrones fans alike, and is sure to leave a lasting impression! #northernireland
Northern Ireland: Another country with amazing nature. The must to see is Dark Hedges, Giant’s Causeway which is an ancient volcanic fissure eruption and National Trust Carrick-a-Rede with arope bridge that yiu can walk through. This is one of the best trip in my life 💙
🍃 Natural Trip ~ Belfast 🇬🇧
Aside from shopping and food hunt, I do like to visit our “Mother Nature” too!! We have decided to visit Belfast during the weekend. I would say 3D2N is good enough. The two spots that I would recommend you to visit are listed down below🙌🙌
I would recommend you to follow a One-day tour as it is very easy and you get to access to all the amazing places. The price is definitely affordable and you can choose the time that suits you. As for myself, we departed at 7am ☀️ and get back to the city before evening. The tour guide was very kind and funny, he was explaining all the history and story along the way 👍
