Games of Thrones bus tour welcomed

30 10 2012


Welcoming news of a “Game of Thrones bus tour” which will visit each of the fantasy epic’s filming locations, Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cunningham hopes that Ballintoy can reap the resultant tourist benefits.

Beauty spots like the picturesque NorthCoast  Ballintoy harbour and Larrybane Quarry both featured in the US cable television series, and should prove popular destinations for enthusiasts

If we look at how well other areas like Northumberland’s AlnwickCastle which featured in the Harry Potter movies have done, reputedly bringing about £9m worth of tourism to that region, we should see this as a positive development.
