Cushendun Cave: Below Storm's End

Northern Ireland: Game of ThronesCushendun Cave: Below Storm's End

Location

Cushendun has long been safe harbour for seafarers, centuries before the village with the same name was established at the mouth of the River Dun. The nearby caves, easily accessible by foot, were formed over 400 million years ago.

The entrance to the cave system is right next to the shoreline.

On your way to the cave, you will pass throught the tranquil fishing village of Cushendun that is definitely worth a stop - the main reason being that the local pub Mary McBride’s features one of the Doors of Thrones.

The door at Mary McBride's follows Arya's storyline in Season 6: the Titan of Braavos looms above, the coin from the faceless man is in the middle while further down Arya's beloved Needle is depicted.

Key Scenes

Stannis Baratheon orders Davos Seaworth to smuggle the red priestess Melisandre into a cave below Renly Baratheon's camp. To Davos' horror, Melisandre gives birth to a dark shadow, which creeps into the camp and kills Renly (Season 2, Episode 4: Garden of Bones).
