Visit Westeros with a little help from Airbnb

by W. Andrew Powell

The war-torn but always beautiful world of Westeros from Game of Thrones may seem unreachable, but it may not be as far away as you expected.

All of the stunning locations in Game of Thrones are of course filmed in places around the world where you can visit, and Airbnb has released a list of homes, castles, and unique spaces to stay near some of the iconic destinations.

Some of the prices are also pretty affordable, once you actually fly into the locations.

Check out the list below, and you can also find more ideas on visiting the real locations of the series courtesy of

A summerhouse in North Westeros, Iceland
With Iceland representing the northern-most tip of Westeros, this summerhouse is perfectly located an hour’s drive from Reykjavik.

Fans will recognise the Thingvellir National Park from Arya’s storyline and as the setting for the battle of the Hound and Brienne, as this listing boasts 360 degree views of the park itself.

£114 per night based on two guests.

Galway, Ireland
Over the wall in Galway, Ireland
Built in the 1400s, this refurbished medieval castle is full of quirks, perfect to visit the realm of the windlings who live beyond.

With winding staircases, and oak beams, the only difference is that this listing is not 700 feet tall like the Wall.

£95 a night based on two guests.

Dalmatian Coast
Dwell in the Dalmatian Coast
Just steps from the beach, and 15 minutes walking distance from the Old Town, this listing acts as the real life backdrop of the King’s Landings.

Overlooking the island of Lokrum, you will be enchanted by the views and the history surrounding you.

£45 a night based on two guests.

This grand, 300-year-old town house boasts 1,000 square metres so you can really explore the heart of Malta.

From the marble busts to the banquet-style dining room, ensconce yourself under the conversion’s many arches or stretch out under the skylights as youtake in the azure Maltese sky.

£152 per night based on two guests.

Admire the mud brick fortress in Morocco
This romantic, charming riad features a gorgeous tiled rooftop patio, stone bathrooms throughout and terraces overlooking a central courtyard – a far cry from the troubles of Yunkai city.
