In our last update, we reported that they would be doing some filming at Murlough Bay. Eyewitness reports indicate that there is in fact a large caravan of trucks and trailers there presently. But now we’ve also received word via Twitter of some filming in the Glens of Antrim, near the village of Cushendun, which is
clear on the other side of Northern Ireland. So either they are filming in two locations simultaneously, or the Murlough Bay shoot is winding down and Cushendun is beginning. Or vice versa.
The Cushendun location is interesting because there is a nice seaside cave nearby (pictured above)… Storm’s End anyone? On a possibly related note, Carice van Houten (Melisandre) is in Belfast prepping to film some scenes and sent out this rather cryptic tweet. Interesting.
Another rumored location is Gosford Forest Park and possibly Gosford Castle. There have been pink “GOT” signs spotted in the area, though where exactly they lead, we don’t know yet. This location may still be in prep mode for later filming. A local newspaper also reported that they plan to film at Dunluce Castle and Whitepark Bay in the coming weeks.
Winter Is Coming: As always, we will keep our eyes open and our ears to the ground, for any other filming activity. If you have any tips or info, drop us a line!
