Tourism Ireland has unveiled one final Game of Thrones 2016 campaign film – encouraging fans suffering from Westeros withdrawal symptoms to come and check out Northern Ireland’s mountains, castles and shorelines.
The organisation’s Game of Thrones 2016 campaign, created in partnership with HBO, has been hugely successful. It’s been promoting Northern Ireland to millions of the show’s fans worldwide since season six began back in April.
The latest film tells the story of Tourism Ireland’s “Doors of Thrones” campaign and how two trees from a battered tourist attraction (the Dark Hedges) have now been turned into a new tourist attraction – and a wonderful celebration of Northern Ireland’s links to the most popular TV show of all time.
Viewers will see how world-class illustrators and craftsmen interpreted the storylines of each new episode in season six and carved them into the historic timber, to create 10 bespoke, intricately carved doors.
Each week, a new door was installed at a pub or venue near a GoT filming location.
Together, the doors now form a brand new tour through season six – spanning the length and breadth of Northern Ireland.
