Feel like you're in Game of Thrones staying in these Airbnbs
Game of Thrones is back for its final season and while a trip to Westeros just isn’t in the cards for any of us, you can book some pretty incredible Airbnbs that will transport you there. With plenty of travellers heading to the show’s filming locations, Airbnb notes that guest reviews mentioning the show are up 467% in Ireland, 406% in Croatia, 386% in Iceland and 218% in Spain. To celebrate, Airbnb has rounded up five incredible homes that will make you feel like your favourite characters.
If you want to explore King’s Landing, this home is only 100 metres from the Dubrovnik Walls in the Old Town. The home, which is built into a hillside and features sea view terraces, has historic features and modern finishes, as well as luxuries like a private sauna.
Travellers who want to live the luxurious life of Dornish royalty – without the grisly end – will feel right at home in a studio in Seville, Spain. The palatial house was built in 1940 by architect Fernando Chueca and is a short walk to the Seville Cathedral.
While Iceland might stand in the freezing lands North of the Wall, this chalet gives you the benefit of seeing the Northern Lights the fall until the beginning of May. The warmer months will give you the chance to enjoy the beauty of the midnight sun.
Be transported to Yunkai, the Yellow City on Slaver’s Bay in Essos, in this Airbnb. The historic fortified city of Aït Ben Haddou is a World Heritage Site, and this guest house is an authentic Kasbah that has been renovated with traditional techniques.
Live like the lords of Winterfell in an Irish castle. The Victoria Drummond Tower in Drogheda was built in 1858 and has been recently restored into a small dwelling that can be rented in certain months of the year.
