Two of Hastings Hotels’ establishments have recently been fortunate to have been chosen as the locations for two of the beautifully engraved Game of Thrones inspired doors. The doors are the central element of Tourism Northern Ireland and Tourism Ireland’s Game of Thrones campaign, each of which tells the story of a different episode of Season 6 of Game of Thrones. The doors have been unveiled in recent weeks in pubs and other venues near Game of Thrones filming locations across Northern Ireland.
These two remarkable doors can now be found in the Percy French, within the grounds of the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa and close to Tollymore Forest Park and in the Ballygally Castle on the stunning Antrim Coast, which is in close proximity to the filming locations at Cairncastle, the Cushendun Caves and the village of Glenarm.
To further celebrate the success of Game of Thrones, Hastings Hotels top chefs have put their heads together and created a dish that will have everyone in Northern Ireland salivating!
Managing Director of Hastings Hotels, Howard Hastings, commented “The Percy French and Ballygally Castle are becoming increasingly popular with fans from the series who want to see the doors and visit the film locations. The doors look
abulous and have been carved from the wood of two fallen 200 year old birches that once stood at the Dark Hedges, another famous Game of Thrones landmark that represents Kingsroad in the series.
“But we didn’t want to stop there and now our team of talented chefs have created a unique Westeros Tomahawk Steak dish which is exclusively available at the Percy French and Ballygally Castle. These 20oz salt aged steaks have been specially prepared for us by local butchers, Carnbrooke Meats from Dromore and come served on a wooden platter, complete with a ‘Valyrian steel’ inspired knife.”
Howard continued: “The incredible steak is served with our special Causeway chips, Portobello mushrooms, beef tomatoes, rocket garnish and a choice of sauce. A Tomahawk makes an ideal sharing steak for a special occasion or romantic meal, as it can easily feed two and at £60 for two people, it is a very hearty and unique dinner choice!”
