Northern Ireland beach to fully reopen next week after Game of Thrones season 5 shoot

The public will be able to visit the beautiful Portstewart after filming for HBO's epic fantasy series

The latest scenic spot to feature in Game of Thrones season 5 is a two-mile stretch of beach in Londonderry. Portstewart was taken over by camera crew, cast and horses. Although the National Trust-managed beach was closed off, a few fans of the show managed to sneak a peak of the action and posted their sneaky pics on Twitter:


Although some restrictions may be in place until August 11, beach-goers should be able to visit the scenic spot again with no restrictions from August 12.

Game of Thrones series five will also be filmed in Andalusia, Granada and Southern Spain – which will form the backdrop of the capital of the kingdom of Dorne (in Southern Westeros). It’s believed that the Alcázar of Seville could double for the Water Gardens of Dorne.

Game of Thrones has previously filmed in various mystical and exotic locations including Croatia, Northern Ireland, Iceland, Morocco and Scotland.
