Visit Murlough Bay

A Northern Irish bay with wild landscapes

Murlough Bay is one of the exceptional sites regularly used for film and series shooting. It was here that some scenes of the Iron Throne were shot!

It must be said that the surroundings of the bay are pleasantly wild, being essentially composed of cliffs and rocky headlands of basalt, sandstone and limestone.

The area is ideal for a short hike: don’t hesitate to walk along the bay to admire its views of the sea, and a few small islands belonging to Scotland!

For the record, the bay was the burial place of the famous Roger Casement, a former diplomat of the British government who participated in the Irish nationalist revolutionary movement. He was executed for treason in August 1916 by the British government and buried in Murlough Bay. Since that day, a commemoration ceremony is held every year in August on Murlough Bay to pay tribute to him .
