Doors of Thrones 5 – Owens Bar Limavady

‘Hold the door’…let’s take a moment.

This week’s episode unsurprisingly resulted in the intricate carvings of the The Night’s King being the centre focus of Game Of Thrones Door of Thrones No5. Aplty named ‘The Door’ episode 5 centred around the back story of how the Night’s King came to be, Bran’s step forward in his abilities and sadly how Hodor got his name.

Episode 5, Door 5

The door itself can be found in Owen’s Bar in Limavady. Approximately 30 minutes from L’Derry, Limavady plays host to the filming location of Dragonstone – previously home to Stannis Baratheon. The bar itself is a family run business with brothers Damien and Garry at the helm. A small, friendly pub with plenty a tipple available I was also reliably informed that across the road was the home of Jane Ross, the writer of the tune of Danny Boy. I also learnt that Danny Boy is the second most sung song after ‘Happy Birthday’. Every day is a learning day!

I think this door is much more ominous in character. Not only for the face of the Night’s King and 2 other Whiet Walkers but also the almost outreach the hands depict over the Stark Crest. At first I thought it was to show the demise of Summer (sniff) but I think it shows more the link that the White Walks and Starks inevitably have in their past present and future and that basically they will definitely face off.

As always I recommend anyone reading this to go visit this door and the other 4 out there. It’s a great opportunity to go to places you perhaps normally wouldn’t and to see what great sights and culture are on your doorstep.
