One amazing thing to do in Belfast if you love Game of Thrones

And so Season 7 of the most popular TV series in the world right now is back, and it's been amazing so far!! We've been waiting patiently as this season started later than normal and it isn't disappointing us.

To celebrate the fact that a lot of it is recorded here in Northern Ireland, Tourism Ireland and Northern Ireland Tourist Board have launched their latest GoT campaign and it's totally mind blowing.

That time we met Jaime Lannister

After the huge success of the Doors of Thrones campaign last year, they've pulled out all the stops (or threads) and revealed the most stunning tapestry in the Ulster Museum.
 Here's why you need to see it;

  • At 77m long when finished, this giant tapestry will continue to be revealed after each of the 7 episodes this season 
  • The tapestry tells the story of every episode from the first 6 seasons of Game of Thrones
  • It brings to life the most famous scenes from this epic TV series


  • Look out for all the characters you have loved (or hated) and lost in the last 6 seasons 
  • You'll be astounded at the amazing detail and colour in this bayeux style tapestry. 


  • It'll bring back so many memories as you relive each episode of the first 6 seasons during your visit
  • Tourism Ireland have launched an app which tells the story of the tapestry as you walk around the exhibition space. Get your app here
  • You can find this phenomenal work of art on the 5th Floor of the Ulster Museum and best of all, 
  • It's FREE to see!


If you do one thing this summer as a Game of Thrones fan, then this has to be it!
