Belfast Harbour Studios have announced a major refurbishment and expansion program. This is a great boost to the province which already offers fabulous facilities to those wishing to film there.

Amazing locations.

There really is a bit of everything in Northern Ireland. If you are looking for dramatic castles, then this really is the place for you. Charming, as well as wild and rugged coastlines are quite something too. Add glacial valleys and rolling countryside into the mix and there is sure to be something rural to capture your planned scenes.

The main urban hub is, of course, Belfast. A wonderful, modern city but with plenty of history too. The list of iconic Belfast locations includes the City Hall, the Albert Memorial Clock, Ulster Hall, Queens University and some rather splendid botanical gardens. The ultra-modern waterfront and Titanic quarter are also certainly worth considering. If historical architecture is required, there is plenty of the city still offering some history.

Much of the Game Of Thrones was filmed in Belfast studios as well as out on location around the country. There is a rich well of talent on offer. Lost City Of Z, Philomena and The Good Son are some of the other great productions which tapped into this talent.

Away from Belfast, County Antrim offers some amazing locations. The most famous of these will surely be the quite extraordinary natural wonder, Giant’s Causeway. Carrickfergus Castle and the Glens of Antrim are other beautiful backdrops for filming. With islands off the coast, rope bridges and famous distilleries, County Antrim really does have it all.

When To Film.
