THE cliffs of Fairhead near Ballycastle provided the stunning backdrop for an eagerly awaited episode of the hit TV series Game of Thrones.
Viewers were rewarded last week with a highly anticipated meeting of two of the show's biggest characters, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.
But while fan theories flood the internet over the pair's relationship, viewers from Northern Ireland may also have had that fuzzy feeling of familiarity during the episode.
During the epic culmination of seven years of plot and character development, a new Northern Ireland filming location was seen on screens around the globe: the cliffs of Fairhead.
Known as Northern Ireland's tallest cliff face, the impressive and iconic Fairhead rises 600 feet above sea level near Ballycastle on Northern Ireland's Causeway Coast.
