‘Game Of Thrones’ WALL May Become Northern Ireland’s Latest Tourist Attraction, Winter Is Here, Highlight Hollywood News

Hardhome Is North Of The Wall

Game of Thrones has become a phenomenon, but TV’s most popular show around the world is giving Northern Ireland the boost of tourism that they desperately  needed following years of civil-war and strife between Catholics and Protestants.  Gone are those days, now Ireland is one of the safest and most beautiful places in the world.  And what is more iconic in Game of Thrones than The Wall, which is described as 800-feet tall, 500 miles long, which stretches across the northern border of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros?  It may become one of Ireland’s hotspots, no pun intended, after all in Thrones, the wall is made completely of ice.Got-Wall-3 

The Wall, which currently acts as the Night’s Watch home base, and mainly at Castle Black, could become a permanent tourist attraction in Northern Ireland, according to a new report. The wall, which is described as “cement works” no longer in use, overlooks the Irish Sea, and local politicians want HBO to leave the set intact once filming ends on the fantasy series.



“It is a magnificent site and it would be a massive tourist attraction. The number of buses and people who stop to try and get views of it,” Sammy Wilson, a member of parliament in the Democratic Unionist Party, said, according to the Belfast Telegraph.   You can see (IMAGES) of The Wall Below:

Season six of Game of Thrones is currently filming and Harington has been spotted with his co-stars hanging out around Belfast near the set, still looking very Jon Snow-like (#HairWatch2015 is a real thing, people). Sure, this could all be a ploy to keep ravenous fans on their toes and Jon Snow is really dead. Or he lives.


Despite all the evidence, showrunners and Harington, insist Jon Snow is dead. Dead.
