You can visit the area he grew up in, walk the streets he played and maybe even pay your own respects.

Ranked number 11 The Times “50 Greatest British Writers since 1945” Lewis is the creator of one of history’s most fascinating fictional worlds.

Our Beyond Belfast day trip or North Antrim Coast/Causeway trip is the ideal trip for any of our guests who are looking to fit as much into their day as possible or may only have a limited time in the city. So, for someone only passing through the city or visiting on a cruise ship, this excursion ticks all the boxes.
You would normally be collected from your accommodation around 8:30 am. From here you would be brought straight up to the north Antrim coast where you have the option of visiting some of our world-famous heritage sites, many of which have been featured in award-winning movies and television shows. Some of these are the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge, the Giant’s Causeway, Bushmills distillery, and/or Dunluce castle plus other secret stops along the way. You will stop and explore all of these yourself and you will also stop for lunch.
Due to time or capacity restrictions at certain sites, this could have a knock-on effect on the itinerary for the day. Before you even set off, your driver will have a conversation with you and will explain in detail his plans for your day, gauging what you would like to see and do specifically and he will try and fit in as many sites for you as possible. This would last around 7-8 hours or so.

Fans can pay their respects and propose a toast in “Joey’s Bar” just outside his hometown of Armoy in Ballymoney.
Named the “UK City of Culture 2013” our Maiden City is steeped in as much history and conflict as our Capital. For visitors looking for another urban adventure to match our murals tour, a trip to Derry is just the thing. Being collected around 8 am from your accommodation you will travel up to the city where you will take in sites like the Guild Hall, the Free Derry Corner, and the Free Derry Museum. You will get to walk along the historic walls that held off King James’ army for 105 days during the siege of the city in the 1600s. You will see the areas of the Bogside where the atrocities of Bloody Sunday took place in 1972 and the effects it has left behind today.
On request, we can also offer quotes on trips to areas such as Strangford Lough and the Ards peninsula, Castle Ward and St Patrick’s Trail, or further even to Newcastle and the Mourne Mountains. If we cannot personally escort you, we will be able to pass on details to local colleagues in the Co. Down area.

With sales worldwide, the award-winning work of George R.R Martin’s A Song Of Ice And Fire began filming in Northern Ireland back in 2009. After the fantastic response and success on both sides of the water with the first instalment of A Game Of Thrones, the HBO creators commissioned filming to continue and so this great and versatile country will be known as the real-life land of Westeros for the foreseeable future.
While you are on our tour you will get to see many of the key sites that are recognizable from the series. Giving fans a chance to get up close and experience the world of Westeros for themselves. The series has allowed us in Northern Ireland to showcase some of the most beautiful and spectacular sites known to man. This unique, natural landscape has allowed HBO to bring the world of George R.R.Martin’s work to a whole other level of cinematic wonder.
One of the most captivating sites along the North Coast which has really been put on the map is The Dark Hedges. Planted in the 18th Century, these fascinating Beech trees have grown over the years to almost intertwine with each other and are favourites with photographers and painters. It even has its own ghostly background, adding a further air of magical mystery to it. This no doubt added to its appeal in regard to the Game of Thrones producers and left viewers in awe with the closing shots in season two.
Aside from The Dark Hedges, other sites along the North Antrim Coast have been featured in the show such as Ballintoy Harbour and Dunluce Castle. These remarkable sites are so rich in versatility that they have been doubled up in episodes for many different scenes. When Theon Greyjoy first returns to the Iron Islands, we see the harbour in all its glory. Whereas on the opposite side of the Ballintoy, on a secluded little Beach, viewers can first see our own, great Liam Cunningham, who played Ser Davos Seaworth, wait on the shore with Stannis Baratheon.
Hardcore fans will be truly satisfied with their experience and will be able to step into this mystical world for themselves.
