Limavady – a town close to the filming location for Game of Thrones’® fictional Dragonstone – has become home to the 5th ‘Door of Thrones’, created as part of our campaign celebrating Northern Ireland’s connection with HBO’s smash hit show.
Echoing scenes from last night’s episode, the intricately-carved door features striking designs and depicts the Night’s King character. It has been hung in Frank Owens Bar in Limavady.
Every week of season six we reveal a new door in a pub, restaurant or venue close to a filming location of the iconic show. The doors have been created using wood salvaged from two trees at the Dark Hedges (Game of Thrones’® Kingsroad) which fell during Storm Gertrude.
Our campaign is showcasing Northern Ireland to millions of the show’s fans worldwide and encouraging them to come and follow in the footsteps of their favourite GoT characters – to discover the forests, mountains and landscapes of Northern Ireland which provide the scenic backdrops for so many memorable moments in the fantasy drama.
The first door (from episode one) is hanging in The Cuan guest inn in Strangford – near the filming locations of Castle Ward and Audley’s Castle. The second door is hanging in Fiddlers Green in Portaferry, near Quintin Bay. The third door, in the Percy French restaurant in Newcastle, is near Tollymore Forest Park; and the fourth door is in Blakes of the Hollow in Enniskillen, near Pollagollum Cave.
