  • The trees are amazing. But I didn't watch the Game of Thrones, so I didn't have any special feeling. 
  • It's pretty cool, but not worth going just for it, as part of a tour then yes it's a good photo opportunity, especially if your a game of thrones fan. It's so close to ballintoy where we were going. T...  more »
  • Beautiful tree-lined Avenue, you must shoot at sunrise or sunset, awesome! You should not go on the weekend, then it is usually very crowded. The road is to be closed...

  • Very popular. This place is so busy, no chance to take nice shots during the day. Loads of busses. But it's fantastic place. Definitely worth going.
  • Had a 5-10 minute stop and the place was beautiful, but because it's such a tourist spot there are people everywhere and just in the road, hard to get any good pictures with all the people, but if you're in the area it's a nice stop. Was told it's a Game of Thrones location, so if you're a fan of that, it might be even better for you.
  • The story behind this is lovely and seeing the trees was lovely but I don't watch Game of Thrones so it was quite wasted on me and we only got a 10 minute stop off to literally just take pictures.
  • Interesting stop. The trees are dying unfortunately, so you need to go soon if you're wanting to. Cool tie in to Game of Thrones also.
  • This is by now Ireland's most photographed road. An avenue of beech trees that for decades was only known by locals. Most of the trees will be gone in little over a decade.
