park in the lot on the other side of the bridge and walk back to the entrance to the caves. It's hidden behind some homes and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before it's turned into a tourist trap so the locals must hate it. there are no signs for it or where to go so find it on your phone gps and then walk towards it. USE THE GRASSY TRAIL TO THE RIGHT and don't walk along the beach. the caves are wondrous and a quick stop as you drive up the antrim coast. I never saw GOT and still appreciated the natural beauty.

Tucked away at the end of Cushendun are the caves that featured in the Game of Thrones series. It is a lovely site and is now part of the GoT tours which take you around the beautiful coastline of County Antrim and County Down. Some very slight steps to be encountered.

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council obviously don't really see much benefit to anyone visiting these caves and I say that as they have allowed the developers of the bay apartments to fence off the old access forcing you to try to access via the stone / pebble beach resulting in very difficult access and my wife falling twice trying to see them, we ended up turning round and certainly spoiled our trip. As I say, there's an old better access but I guess money talks :-(

The is where Ser Davros and Melisandre landed and where she gave birth. Dark, cold, and damp. The locals don’t appear to welcome visitors.

I know there is the GofT link but these caves are well worth a visit in their own right! Access is currently slightly tricky due to building work - you have to walk along the beach area, dodging the tides, then get up a large awkward single step in the sand. But the caves are worth it, especially the largest one with its interesting “pebbledash” effect walls bearing a strong resemblance to embedded skulls!

Great little trip up to the picturesque seaside village of Cushendun in the Glens of Antrim. Got to visit the Cushendun Caves famous from from scenes in the multi award winning Game of Thrones TV Show. Lovely seaside views along the stoney beach and then there is also a great sandy beach on the otherside of Cushendun for walking, relaxing, reacreation and leisure.

Loved this. Really stunning and only a very short walk from the village centre. Game of Thrones filmed here and the caves are really interesting. Fab wee beach along the road too.
Enjoyed it and definitely worth a visit.

We visited this location during a 3-day tour of Northern Ireland with Rabbies in May 2019. Yes, this review is delayed, so sorry.

Normally these would just be sea caves, but they are where Ser Davos and Lady Melisandre landed ashore in season 2 of the Game of Thrones and where there was a battle between Jamie Lannister and Euron Greyjoy later in the show. So to GoT fans they are worth a visit. Like so much of this coast, it's quite beautiful and worth a stop even if you are not a GoT fan.

I would recommend if it's not too out of the way.

The nearby village of Cushendall is also quite lovely and worth a visit, and it is apparently where Irish King O'Neill was killed and from where his decapitated head was sent to Elizabeth 1 representatives in Dublin. So, beautiful and tragic.

Nice caves. Not seen GoT but was good to look around. Perfect for big fans of the show. Easy to get to and good for a quick short visit.
