The most photographed trees in Ireland

If you watch Game Of Thrones, you might recognise this impressive avenue of beech trees from series one. Aside from an appearance on the cult HBO show, this beautiful natural phenomena is one of the most photographed and painted attractions in Northern Ireland and is a favourite for wedding photographers.

Planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century to impress visitors to their home, Gracehill House, this magnificent site has become known as the Dark Hedges.

Legend has it that a mysterious Grey Lady appears at dusk amongst the trees. Silently gliding down the avenue, she disappears into thin air as she passes the last beech tree.

We didn’t see her ourselves, but this beautiful place certainly has an otherworldly atmosphere.
