Attraction Information

Ready to enjoy a mystical day out? Step into The Dark Hedges in Northern Ireland, trust us, it’s not as scary as it sounds!

Originally planted in the 18th century, these trees were originally planted as an entrance to a grand house, and you can still see how majestic they could have looked! Got any game of Thrones fans in your trope? You might recognise this spot as one of the filming locations for the famous series, and you can see why!

There’s even a rumour that the hedges have their very own ghost called the ‘Grey Lady’ who loves to haunt this spot, so if you’re looking for a spooky day out this should definitely be on your list.

  • Incredible natural trees
  • Great for a family day out
