Pro Demo Reel from Northern Ireland


Soarscape - Aerial Showreel


Soarscape is one of the top commercial drone piloting firms in Northern Ireland, and their work covers the span of the six counties which make up this region of the UK.  Their video includes aerial views of some of the most amazing sites in Northern Ireland, which is sometimes called Ulster (although Ulster also includes County Donegal of the Irish Republic).   You will be treated to bird's eye views of the majestic cliffs, ancient baronial estates, historical fishing villages, and shimmering castles.  

County Londonderry: Mussenden Temple


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.

Northern Ireland's River Foyle

This drone video by AirVuz contributor and pilot Richard Webber highlights the Scrabo Tower, an important landmark in Northern Ireland.  Shot with a DJI Spark drone, he gives us an epic bird's eye view of this lookout tower, which is located in County Down, in the northeast corner of Ulster.  The tower was built in the 1800's in commemoration of the 3rd Marquess of Londonderry, a baron who fought in the Napoleonic Wars.  Designed in the Scottish Baronial Revival style, tower was originally known as Londonderry Monument.

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”.

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.

Portrush: Storied Beach Town of County Antrim


Portrush Northern Ireland, no filters


For a first upload to AirVuz, brand-new AirVuz contributor Portrushgetaway brings us this fantastic drone video from the storied Northern Ireland beach town of Portrush.  The main part of the town occupies a small peninsula called Ramore Head on the northern coast of County Antrim.  Once a small fishing village, Portrush came to prominence in the late 19th century, when new railway connections led it to become one of the most popular beach destinations on the island of Ireland (which was then entirely part of the United Kingdom).  

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.

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.

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.
