Cushendun Caves is located in Cushendun, Northern Ireland. The cave site was used in the filming of Game of Thrones twice, and both of the scenes were far reaching. Cushendun Caves were first used in Game of Thrones as a location near Storm’s End in the Stormlands in season two. Stannis Baratheon could not convince his brother Renly to accept him as the true King. Stannis ordered Davos Seaworth to smuggle the witch Melisandre to a cove near Renly’s camp. In the cave featured in this video, Davos watched Melisandre give birth the shadow creature that ended up killing Renly.
This cave played a pivotal role in the scene where Jamie Lannister fights Euron Greyjoy in Season 8 Episode 5 of the final Season of Game of Thrones. Let’s just say that Euron got what he deserved.
This video is mainly drone video showcasing the caves and the surrounding area. The inside of the cave is also shown as well. See if you can recognize any of the places where they filmed those pivotal scenes?
The Town of Cushendun
I can see why this site was selected for filming these scenes for Game of Thrones. There is no charge to see the caves, they are just there around the corner from the main town. Just find somewhere to park and walk on over. The town of Cushendun nearby is a beautifully quaint little town with a goat mascot on the side of the road. Be sure to say hi to him! There is a great little restaurant/ice cream store in town called The Corner House. Be sure to stop in. This is definitely worth a stop if you are in Northern Ireland.
