Very nice!

An amazing view, overlooking a place that was used several times as filming location in HBO series Games Of Thrones.

Picture perfect & funny watching people dressed up with swords and shields getting their Game of Thrones photos :0). Cafe had massive selection of cakes - we loved the millionaires shortcake and a much needed cup of tea.

I love it here, small café, a beach for paddling, walks along the coast, very small harbour (GOT filmed scenes here) but it is more about the atmosphere here, the strange rock formations and hillocks, really quite special, lovely walks to the left of the café, assume they are park of Causeway coast walk. Benches to sit on to watch... More

This is a lovely harbour to look out at when having a picnic in the car or sitting out.I wouldn't recommend the red door café on the road down to the harbour as the food isn't at all nice and is expensive.even the café down at the harbour is dear but is nice for a carry out coffee or ice... More

Lovely spot to visit on the causeway costal route in North Antrim. Good parking, toilets and a lovely little cafe, selling homemade cakes and refreshments. Well worth a visit!

This is a beautiful harbor even if you don't watch GoT, but if you do then welcome to The Iron Islands! Have a beautiful little stroll!

I visited this attraction with some friends from London who had never been to Ireland. This place was a particular favourite for them as we walked around the harbour and admired the wonderful views and scenery. It's an 'interesting' drive down the road to the harbour and a word of caution to drivers of large/campervan vehicles - not a lot... More

Brilliant little beach and harbour down a windy track with one of the most photogenic churches in Ireland at the start. Spring lambs, oyster catchers , eider ducks and fulmars, enjoyed with my daughter now and mother before. Heaven

This was a lovely little surprise. We went there because of its Game of Thrones connection, but it is a lovely place to visit in its own right. The harbour is beautiful, particularly on a roughish day when the waves are crashing on the rocks. Caoaches can't get down to the harbour, so it is rarely really busy.

My wife and I called here as Game of Thrones was filmed here (The Iron Islands ). The scenery is stunning and you must call in Roarkes cafe while here.
