One of the castles - Ward Castle near Belfast, played the role of the Stark family seat, the powerful fortress of Winterfell, in the film adaptation of "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R.R. Martin - "Game of Thrones". In Martin's book, south of the Wall, stretch the estates of the Starks - the former Kings in the North.
