This was so amazing to see. Plus we got there early and there were no cars on the road so we were able to get good pictures with no vehicles or people on the road. This attraction doesn't take too long to view so you can add this quick stop to your journey.

If you are a fan of the series game of thrones, this definitely has to be in your bucket list when you are in Northern Ireland. The place is very photogenic!

Everybody talks about the Giants Causeway but this is a gem now being recognised because of its association with Game of Thrones. It's free to view and providing you don't cause any damage to the trees you must visit.

As we've never seen the hit show "game of thrones" we couldn't decide if this place would be a hit with us or not! Well I can tell you it's more than worth a visit. A nice touch in the autumn frost too!

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. There were bus loads of people and plenty of people walking down it, I don't know how i timed my photo... More

I am not sure if the trees are naturally grown like that or are they shaped by man. Either way, their structure formed a magical scene for the road. It's surreal. I just randomly took few photos right there and post them on the internet. My friends from around the world were all amazed by the scene and ask me... More

Nice tree line roadway. Worth a stroll and seeing even if you're not a Game of Thrones fan. Would like to see after it snowed - Winter would then definitely be coming!

The Hedges are amazing! If you want to take some nice pictures you'll have to come early, as there will be plenty of people taking pictures. This period is quite windy and be prepared for the unexpected rain ! ☔️

We drove out there and found that the hotel offering free parking was too far for my wife to walk to the Hedges themselves due to a hip condition. The road to the Hedges has been blocked off and 'gatekeepers' were standing in front of the barriers. I appreciate that this has now become a tourist attraction but until very... More
