Northern Ireland was basically one big film set for the Game of Thrones. The Cushenden Sea Caves is one filming location that is more off the grid than The Dark Hedges and the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge.
The Cushenden Sea Caves require only a quick visit as the sea caves are shallow. They were formed approximately 400 million years ago during the erosion of the Caledonian mountain range. Other than its geological history, not much is known about its human history. Regardless, if you can find it, it’s a neat attraction to visit!
