Game of Thrones fans US Vagabrothers tour Northern Ireland to find 'real Winterfell'

How difficult is it to find the real Winterfell in Northern Ireland?

Northern Ireland plays home to some of the iconic locations in the award-winning hit HBO series.

Now two popular travel vloggers the Vagabrothers have travelled on a mission to find The Real Winterfell.

The Vagabrothers are brothers Marko and Alex Ayling from California who describe themselves as “backpackers and video bloggers on a mission to explore the world through its people”.

It was the final video in a series all about Northern Ireland, which they have published this month.

In September, Tourism Ireland commissioned the Vagabrothers to produce these vlogs, to showcase some of the top visitor experiences to prospective holidaymakers around the world.

The eight-minute film sees the brothers check out some of the many Game of Thrones locations in Northern Ireland – including the Dark Hedges, Ballintoy Harbour, Inch Abbey, as well as Castle Ward, where they try their hand at archery.

They also spot a ‘three-eyed raven’ on the shores of Strangford Lough, meet one of the ‘direwolves’ and enjoy a walk in the footsteps of the ‘White Walkers’ through Tollymore Forest.
