GoT Actor Praises Ireland’s Landscapes

Game of Thrones actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright has praised Northern Ireland, commenting that the area has “the most amazing landscapes” and that he “can’t sell it enough”.

The comments were made as part of Tourism Ireland's new film starring Game of Thrones actors Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos, and Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who plays Bran Stark.

The video highlights the new Game of Thrones Touring Exhibition at TEC Belfast to fans of the TV series and prospective visitors around the world. It’s also showcasing other reasons to visit Northern Ireland, including Tourism Ireland’s Game of Thrones Tapestry in the Ulster Museum. It features attractions and filming locations like Titanic Belfast, Inch Abbey, Tollymore Forest Park and Cushendun Caves.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “We’re reminding people everywhere that Northern Ireland is ‘Game of Thrones Territory’ and encouraging them to come and explore it for themselves. We’re promoting this film to Game of Thrones fans through our social channels, to whet peoples’ appetites to come and visit in 2019.”

The film will be promoted through Tourism Ireland’s social platforms, including Facebook (more than 4.36m fans worldwide), Twitter (511,500 followers) and YouTube.

Tourism Ireland’s latest Game of Thrones campaign is under way right now. It’s called Glass of Throne and has been timed to coincide with the eighth and final series of the TV drama.
