The hugely popular HBO show Game of Thrones has been a real boon for Northern Ireland tourism. With dozens of filming locations around the region,  Tourism Northern Ireland has teamed up with Northern Ireland Screen to create an interactive app mapping locations where the mythical world of Westeros comes to life. The mobile app enables visitors to discover the real-life settings of GOT. Although the app is available on the Google Play Store, it’s not at the App Store yet.

I hope someone creates an app like this for the show’s film locations in Iceland before my next visit this Fall. Last year, I managed to drive by a number of GOT sites in Iceland without realizing that I was so near.
