Glass of Thrones | Another GoT Stained Glass Window in Belfast Unveiled
While fans chew over the dramatic penultimate episode of epic fantasy series Game of Thrones, they can check out the latest in Tourism Ireland’s ongoing tribute to the series ‘Glass of Thrones’.
To celebrate the final series of GoT, Tourism Ireland — in partnership with HBO — is erecting six beautifully crafted, stained-glass windows around Belfast. When all six windows are up, they’ll form a new GoT trail. This is designed to celebrate the impact the show has had on the city, and on Northern Ireland, providing another great reason for fans from all over the world to come and visit.
Each stained-glass window – or ‘Glass of Thrones’ – is highlighting a key House from the show. The most recent window – located at the SSE Arena – is all about House Targaryen. From Daenerys’ dragon egg laden re-emergence from the funeral pyre, to Drogon’s fiery onslaught of the gold convoy, this fourth window represents the fans’ favourite moments from the family.
The Tourism Ireland campaign is promoting Northern Ireland, and its GoT connection, to millions of fans in ten markets right now. These include Great Britain, the United States, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Scandinavia. The campaign involves Tourism Ireland sharing details of the new installations each week, releasing a mixture of short films, images and cinemagraphs (“living” photographs) to fans around the world – via Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
