The dark hedges are dark even on a sunny day.

I'm told that fans of Game of Thrones will recognize this scene from Northern Ireland, where much of Game of Thrones is filmed, evidently. Sorry, but I've only seen snippets of Game of Thrones. I understand it involves dragons and swords, and, it seems, eery trees.

    • Corinne, it was lovely. We were in a bit of a hurry, otherwise we would have come back at dusk for a creepy factor. That would be spectacular. At noon, it was still pretty bright.

  1. What an incredible sight! GOT location or not it is indeed worth visiting. I want to visit Northern Ireland as soon as I can. I can’t wait to finally see them in person and witness its magnificence.
