Giant, stained glass installations in Belfast celebrate the legacy of Game of Thrones® in Northern Ireland

April 17, 2019 Visit Europe No Comments Email Email

After a decade of filming and production in Northern Ireland, Game of Thrones® is finally drawing to a close. To commemorate the show’s final season and celebrate Northern Ireland as Game of Thrones® Territory, six beautifully crafted, freestanding stained-glass windows will be appearing across the city of Belfast as the eighth and final season unfolds.

Tourism Ireland’s ‘Glass of Thrones’ campaign has been inspired by online fan search data. Each window will highlight a key House from the show, with a series of panels depicting the most exciting and talked-about moments from the entire saga. Each window will be large enough for fans to pose in front of, for photos and selfies.

The first window, revealed today in Belfast, depicts the most searched scenes and storylines of House Stark – whose spiritual home Winterfell is set at Castle Ward in Co Down, Northern Ireland. The window overlooks Belfast City Hall – home to the city’s more traditional stained-glass artworks.

An interactive digital version of the Stark window has also been ‘unlocked’ on, where fans can explore the intricate panels and scenes, upload a photo to create a digital, stained-glass selfie – and then share that photo with friends and fellow fans on their social channels.

As season eight unfolds, six giant windows will appear around Belfast, immortalising the show’s epic battles, fire-breathing dragons, ice-blue white walkers and blood-red weddings in stained glass, giving fans from all over the world a brand-new Game of Thrones® pilgrimage to visit and follow in the city where much of the hit show was filmed.

One window down, five more to go!
