A must visit

The Dark Hedges is a natural woodland phenomenon, which is worth stopping at on the way to the Giants Causeway if you have the time. more »
This is a road out in the middle of nowhere. We stopped here on our way to Giant's Causeway, which worked out great. I don't care that it's just trees lining a road because it looks really cool and I love taking pictures. We probably stayed here for longer than a short strip of road should warrant, but who cares it was enjoyable for us! There were a good amount of people around, especially a girl in an orange jacket that I feel like is in ALL of my pictures. I hope I'm in all of your pictures as well orange-jacket girl! Try your best to get some clear shots, but don't be frustrated if you can't because this isn't really a site, it's a road with cars on it.
As an age pensioner, now that the road is closed to traffic, it is very hard to be able to walk the distance required. Surely there has to be consideration given to aged and ‘blue badge’ visitors who would like to have a look. Please consider.
Unique tree forms stretch over the narrow road. You can drive the stretch of the road. You can also park and walk to enjoy the experience even more. Parking can be tricky and people walking may not allow you to get photos of the trees by themselves. Game of Thrones filmed here. We went at 6pm in July and in the rain. We got parking on the side of the road. No tours buses at that time.
Always a good stopping off point ,especially if you are a fan of Game of Thrones which used the site as a location for filming. Recommend you tie it in with a visit to other local attractions 20 minutes ample time to see the trees. Can be busy, and parking is not good,.as coach parties. can arrive suddenly. No wash facilities if you were wondering. Don't hover or park on the grove if you can avoid it.
Early, Early, Early!! Seriously cannot stress this enough. If you want, even a half decent photo, get there early. We got to the hedges at about 9.50am on a Wedneaday, and there were about 8 people along the route. 15 minutes later two FULL coaches arrived and many other in cars. There's no way you can get the photos you want when it's filled people. The road and the height of the trees make it impossible to work around. You'll either get just the tops of trees and no people, or all people. I'd say the perfect time would be before 9.30am on a weekday.
