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.

Intended to visit caves but steep cobbly path down to them resulted in both my husband and myself falling thus curtailing our visit. A shame there isn't a safe path or steps as caves have quite a few tourist visitors, especially GoT fans. Photo taken sitting on stones after our fall. Luckily we were not hurt__ too much!

We have never seen Game of Thrones, so the hype about the caves meant nothing to us! However, it was fascinating to see and walk through the caves. Only a five minute walk from the centre of the village, though not particularly well signposted.

Although there is not much to the caves, it is still cool to see where part of G.O.T was filmed. The pub in town was amazing. Beautiful day (luckily) so we got a nice view of Scotland walking on the Beach. There are also a lot of rocks to climb on, which are great for children and adults. Just make sure they're not wet! Definitely recommend if you are in the area, only takes 2 or so hours with caves, lunch or dinner, and a walk on the beach.

Was on a tour of the coast with a friend who lives nearby and he stopped by the magnificent caves. We're both fans of Game of Thrones and he wanted to show me all the filming locations. The caves are fascinating to look and because it's off the beaten track it doesn't get too busy. Can be visited in all weathers, but on a clear day the caves afford great views towards Scotland on a clear day. On top of that, the village is very pretty and would definitely recommend stopping off.
