The trip was very good. Travelling was comfortable and enjoyable, made easier with games and videos of behind the scenes. We got to see lovely locations and discover fanfacts not only about Game of Thrones, but also about other productions since our lovely, charming guide Lar had been working in many projects. I am also a massive Vikings fan, I am very close to the Norse history, culture and lore and I consider myself an active pegan so I was totally blown away when he sang a piece from Wardruna, in a woodland bit by the Northern Irland coast. It was my personal favourite moment. So, thank you Lar because I'll never forget the feeling of it. Skal to you.
That and getting to hold my favourite hero of the saga sword in my hands. It is a moment worth the pennies.
I also particularly enjoyed the treks we got to do. I love to go out in nature. For one of them it was raining, which didn't bother me but might not be your cup of tea if you're not equipped. I've gotta say to anyone reading: it is breathtaking and soulhealing, but dress up for the occasion. Layer up, wear stuff that keeps you warm and especially that keeps you dry, since Ireland weather is what it is. Don't bother with umbrellas, the wind will sweep them away just rely on a good raincoat and possibly a waterproof hat to keep your head warm and hair dry. Layers are the key, because if its not raining you'll get to wear the cloaks, which are the real thing let me tell you, and they are heavy, nice and warm. But if it is raining you'll need to have cover for the weather. Trekking shoes or good outdoors gym shows will be needed, waterproof of course! Possibly high boots style to cover your ankles, the pathways are likely to be muddy and with puddles, if you wear sneakers-like shoes your feet will get wet.
To note: we got to be taken to a lovely lunch spot for our break called The Lobster Pot, please please please if you go do order the soup. It was the best soup I've have ever eaten in my entire life, and so filling and warm, just what the soul needs after a trek in the woods, trust me.
And that's it, if you read this and decide to go, enjoy it you won't regret it.
