Last year Breaking Bad was the American TV series that everyone apparently had to watch, but in 2014 that crown has been passed on to fantasy adventure, Game of Thrones.

One part medieval drama, one part Dungeons and Dragons, the big budget show has become better known for its frequent nudity and graphic violence, than any other attribute.

Fans of the show however now have the chance to see the set of the show, which includes a rest stop in Castlebellingham.

If they so wish, fans of the show can visit some of the shows most famous sites with the The Dublin Winterfell Day Tour and A Feast of Ice and Fire Lunch.

The tour will visit an old castle and courtyard, built in the 16th century, which was one of the main backdrops for season one of the series.

This is just one of nine Game of Thrones film locations on site.

Nearby, on the wooded shores of Strangford Lough, is another castle, built in the 15th century, which served as one of the Towers of Walder Frey’s Twins and also as the location of Robb’s Camp.

Other memorable scenes filmed here include Robert and Ned’s picnic, the spot where Brienne of Tarth dispatched three Stark bannermen and the Battlefield of Baelor.

The success of the show means that tours such as this one are likely to start springing up around the world, with the shows many locations wanting to cash in on the success surrounding the show.
