Latest Game of Thrones door unveiled in Ballintoy

Tourism Ireland has unveiled its latest Game of Thrones themed door at the Fullerton Arms in Ballintoy.

The surrounding countryside in Co Antrim is used for filming exterior Pyke shots and the Iron Islands in HBO’s fantasy drama.

A series of 10 carved doors are being unveiled as each episode of season six airs as part of the tourist campaign which aims to showcase Northern Ireland to millions of the show’s fans worldwide.

The doors have been created using wood salvaged from two trees at the Dark Hedges - otherwise known as the Kingsroad in Game of Thrones - which fell during Storm Gertrude.

To date, the doors have been based on “The Red Woman”, “Home”, “Oathbreaker”, “Book of Stranger” and “The Doors”.

Echoing scenes from Monday night’s episode, this week’s intricately-carved door features striking designs and depicts Targaryens and dragons. It is now hanging in The Fullerton Arms.

The first door is hanging in The Cuan guest inn in Strangford, near the filming locations of Castle Ward and Audley’s Castle. The second door is hanging in Fiddlers Green in Portaferry, near Quintin Bay.

The third door, in the Percy French restaurant in Newcastle, is near Tollymore Forest Park; the fourth door is in Blakes of the Hollow in Enniskillen, near Pollagollum Cave; and the fifth door is in Frank Owens Bar in Limavady, near Downhill Strand.

Tourism Ireland has also unveiled its sixth – limited edition – Game of Thrones stamp.
