Episode 4, Book of The Stranger did not disappoint. A vengeful Daenerys blew us away in the final scenes (sans dragons) resulting in a beautiful Targaryen inspired 4th Door of Thrones hung in Enniskillen pub, Blakes of The Hollow. Enniskillen is approx 85 miles from Belfast and is home to Pollagollum Cave, hideout to the Brotherhood without Banners’ (featured here in my Game of Thrones Tour of Ireland Blog).
Episode 4, Door of Thrones 4
Blakes of The Hollow is a beautiful 125 year old Victorian pub in central Enniskillen withe lots of nooks and crannies (and a pool table), and the door faces the bar itself. I’m also assured by the other half that their Guinness is top notch (he enjoyed a pint whilst I wrestled with the lighting to try and get decent shots). Again the door has a slightly different look and feel about it and although not as polished as the door previous, the stain of the wood is almost regal.
So far I think this might be my favourite door. I love the intricacy and the stain of the wood, not to mention how beautifully depicted the dragons are. From what I can gather all door of thrones locations are obligated to keep the door in its place for 1 year and then may move them or present them as they wish. The last door will go on display from mid June (the last episode air date) and from then there will be a bus tour available to visit all door of thrones locations.
Roll on Episode 5 and Door No5.
