Fair Head: The Cliffs of Dragonstone

Northern Ireland: Game of ThronesFair Head: The Cliffs of Dragonstone

Location

At 600 meters above sea level, Fair Head is Northern Ireland's highest cliff face. It appears onscreen as the cliffs of Dragonstone in Season 7, Episode 3: The Queen's Justice when John Snow negotiates with Tyrion Lannister over dragon glass. It also features in Season 7, Episode 5: Eastwatch when John meets Drogon and Daenerys reunites with Jorah Mormont.

The views over the rugged Antrim coastline are absolutely breathtaking and a just reward for the demanding hike up.

From the main carpark visitors can choose between different walking tracks ranging from 2.5 to 5.5 kilometres. The ground can be boggy at times so bring sturdy walking boots.

On a stunning day, the clifftops are the perfect setting for a picnic.
