The latest big-screen epic to showcase the spectacular scenery of Northern Ireland is the new film, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, which recently went on release in cinemas. Much of the filming took place in Northern Ireland – at Titanic Studios and locations close to Belfast. Tourism Ireland, in conjunction with Tourism NI, invited top journalists from GB, the United States, Germany, France, Spain and Belgium to visit Northern Ireland, to check out some of the locations used in filming Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.
The visiting journalists, who represent leading daily newspapers, news websites, lifestyle and entertainment magazines, as well as the popular entertainment TV programme Access Hollywood, have a combined audience of more than 9 million readers, viewers and followers on social media. During their time here, they visited places like Tollymore Forest Park, Castle Ward and the Ards Peninsula, as well as Carrickfergus Castle, Glenarm Castle, the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Ballintoy, the Giant’s Causeway and Dunluce Castle. A crew from NBC’s Access Hollywood also broadcasted from Hillsborough Castle.
Northern Ireland has built a significant reputation as a location for film production in recent years and Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves will once again showcase the beauty of Northern Ireland to a global audience. Tourism Ireland’s aim is to capitalise on the huge popularity of the film – reminding viewers that it was shot on location here, spiking their curiosity about the locations and inspiring them to come and explore them in the real world!
