Exploring Northern Ireland, travel journalist Ed Finn is much closer to home than usual in his latest travel show. This brand new TV3 special takes viewers on a spectacular journey from the historic and lively walled city of Derry to hiking the majestic mountains of Mourne in Co. Down.

There are now over twenty Game Of Thrones experiences available for fans of the show throughout Northern Ireland.
