About Castle Ward

Stay on a film-set location for Game of Thrones in this 14-sleeper bunkhouse.

Stay in the grounds where hit TV series Game of Thrones was set, in this well-equipped bunkhouse. All around you’ll find hints of the TV series, from the replica of the Winterfell Archery Range to the castle-like buildings. It also sits within 820 acres of woodland, close to waters of the Strangford Lough, so there’s lots of exploring to be done.  

It can accommodate up to 14 people as well as 12 small tents. So whether you’re looking to go behind the scenes, taking up voluntary work or just want to see this part of Northern Ireland, Castle Ward Bunkhouse is the ideal base to start from. The Bunk House is quality rated and certified by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
