If you are not watching Game of Thrones on TV then switch over immediately and start watching. It is a combination of history throughout the ages with Dragons and Zombie hordes added for extra spice. This is then set against the backdrop of gorgeous countryside and scenery. It may be of surprise then to learn that most of it is filmed in Northern Ireland. We decided to take a weekend break here in part to meet up with a friend who had recently moved back and was determined to get us to come and visit. It is a short flight from London, just over 1hr and so is a great Friday night to Sunday evening weekend trip.
