Mussenden Temple!


Built in the last part of the 18th century, Mussenden Castle is a distinctive circular building sitting on a cliff in Northern Ireland.  It sits in County Londonderry, the northernmost of the six counties of Ulster which are part of the UK as Northern Ireland.  Mussenden overlooks Downhill Strand (Beach), which was visited by the characters Stannis Baratheon and Melisandre in HBO's Game of Thrones series.  Contributor Pato Williams used a drone to create an aerial tour of this magnificent building.  

County Down: Mourne Mountains


The Mourne Mountains


The Mourne Mountains sit in County Down in the Northern Ireland region of the United Kingdom. They include Slieve Donard, the highest mountain in Ulster.  Contributor Imagine Light used a DJI Mavic Air and a DJI Inspire 2 drone to create this amazing bird's eye view of these magnificent peaks.  The Mournes feature as a filming location for HBO's Game of Thrones series, including two episodes of season one and another in season three. This video is a nominee in the second annual Drone Video Awards for the GoT category.

Content creator and pilot Imaginelight brings us this phenomenal drone video from a well-known beach in Northern Ireland which appeared in HBO's hit TV series Game of Thrones.  Benone Beach (sometimes called Downhill Beach) is an 11 km (7 mi) stretch of beach at the very northern tip of Ulster, in County Londonderry.  This was one of the locations which Game of Thrones used for filming Seasons 2 and 7.  It was here where Red Witch Melisandre declared "for the night is dark and full of terrors”.

County Antrim: Dunluce Castle


Dunluce Castle, N. Ireland (Harrenhal in Game of Thrones)


AirVuz contributor and drone pilot AdventurousDrone created this beautiful aerial video of Dunluce Castle, at the northern tip of Northern Ireland in County Antrim.  The now-ruined castle was built in the 13th century and has been the subject of many cultural references. Most recently, it stood in as Harrenhal, the largest castle in Westeros in the HBO Game of Thrones series. The castle has a storied history, having changed hands several times between various baronies that held sway over the region.

Game of Thrones in Northern Ireland


Northern Ireland


The United Kingdom region known as Northern Ireland was used extensively to film the HBO TV series Game of Thrones.  Examples include the The Dark Hedges in County Antrim (which served as the King's Road, used by Arya Stark to escape the city in Season 1), and Ballintoy Harbour in County Antrim (which stood in as Port of Pyke in Season 2, when Theon Greyjoy returned to the Iron Islands).  These are some of the amazing sights captured by AirVuz contributor and drone pilot Foto-events in his video recapping a trip to Northern Ireland.

Landmarks of Northern Ireland


Northern Ireland


A popular tourist trek in Northern Ireland is to go along the Causeway Coast in County Antrim.  Along the way, they’ll find attractions such as the Rope Bridge and the Giant’s Causeway, as well as a few of the filming locations for the HBO series Game of Thrones such as Dunluce Castle (Harrenhal), Ballintoy (the port of Pyke), the Cushendun Caves, (Stormlands), Downhill Strand (Dragonstone), and the Dark Hedges (King’s Road).  Several of these landmarks are shown in this video.

Cushdendun Caves, County Antrim


Exploring Cushendun Caves - Game of Thrones Filming Location


The fascinating Cushendun Caves of County Antrim in Nothern Ireland were formed over the course of 400 million years.  The caves offer unique photo opportunities and beautiful hiking, but have also claimed a bit of attention due to their serving as the 'Stormlands' in Season 2 of HBO's Game of Thrones.  The priestess Melisandre is escorted here by Davos Seaworth (at the behest of Stannis Baratheon), only to give birth shortly thereafter to a ominous shadow figure.  See the famous caves from above in this drone video by photasma.

Slieve Gallion is a well known mountain in Northern Ireland in Londonderry, the northwesternmost county in British Ulster.  It's part of the Sperrin Mountains, which run across much of Northern Ireland.   Slieve Gallion has a peak elevation of just under 530 meters, or a bit over 1.7k ft.  The mountain is what's known as a volcanic plug, which occurs when a volcano's magma hardens within a vent.  Check out this beautiful mountain from a drone's eye view in this beautiful video by contributor Martin McKenna.  

Derry: Northern Ireland's Second City


Amazing Derry - River Foyle


Check out this beautiful drone video of Derry in Northern Ireland, compliments of contributor imaginelight.  Also known as Londonderry, it's the second largest city in British Ulster after Belfast.  It's one of the oldest continuously inhabited settlements on the island.  Its old walled city is situated on the west bank of the River Foyle, in the northwestern corner of the province.  It is geographically and to some extent culturally close to County Donegal, the northernmost county of Republican Ireland.

Cuilcagh Mountain is an important peak in the Ulster province of northern Ireland.  It sits on the border between County Fermanagh of Northern Ireland (part of the United Kingdom) and County Cavan in Republican Ireland.  It's the highest of the Breifne Mountains; its peak elevation is just under 670 meters or a bit under 2.3k ft.  The area is home to one of the largest bog areas in Ireland.   Contributor and drone pilot Paul Murray created this beautiful bird's eye view of the mountain and its surroundings.

AirVuz contributor and pilot Martin McKenna created this drone video of beautiful Ballintoy Harbor, a small natural port in County Anterim of Northern Ireland.  Located roughly halfway between Giant's Coast and Bushmills, the harbor is dotted with giant rocks and numerous tidal "blowholes".  The harbor may be recognizable to fans of HBO's Game of Thrones fantasy-historical television series: it appeared as the Greyjoy Kingdom of Pyke in the Iron Islands of Westeros in the show's second season.  

Northern Ireland Wind Farm


Swatragh Wind Farm

Martin McK...

Northern Ireland has some of the best wind resources of anywhere in the world.  In mid-2019, a report from the UK government indicated that the territory generated nearly two-fifths of its electricity from wind turbines.  That's roughly twice the percentage for the UK as a whole, which is itself far above the European average. In this drone video by Martin McKenna, you'll get an aerial view of one of Northern Ireland's 82 windpower installations (as of mid-2019): the wind farm of Satragh, in County Londonderry.  

Cavehill: Overlooking Belfast


Soarscape - Cavehill


One of the landmarks around Belfast, Northern Ireland is Cavehill, a hill overlooking the city from its northeast.  It's known for the views it affords of all of Northern Ireland's largest city, which can extend to mainland Scotland on clear days.  Distinguished by an outcrop said to resemble a profile of Napoleon Bonaparte, the hill is believed to be the inspiration for the "sleeping giant" in Jonathan Swift's 18th century classic, Gulliver's Travels.  Check out the famous hill from above in this drone video by soarscape.

Difshot ...

Top AirVuz contributor and pilot Difshot brings us this magnificent drone video from an iconic spot in Northern Ireland.  The video was shot over Lough Erne, a set of two connected lakes in County Fermanagh, the southwesternmost of the six Ulster counties which remain part of the United Kingdom. The "star" of the video is Gad Tower, which sits on a tiny island in the lake.  The tower is what's known as a "folly", which is a structure built primarily for decoration rather than for utlility.  The video was shot at sunset.
