Winter is Coming to IT Tralee-Game Of Thrones Fans Take Your Seat on The Iron Throne.

Have you ever dreamed of being a King, Queen or Khaleesi?

Do you love the worldwide Book & TV hit Game of Thrones, where you win or you die?

Unlike Ned Stark, there is no need to lose your head to achieve your dream of sitting on the iconic Iron Throne of the Kingdom of Westeros, as IT Tralee in Kerry, on Wednesday September 14th and Thursday 15th, welcomes ITT students and staff 10am to 6pm, and the general public 2pm to 6pm, to take their seat on the Iron Throne exclusively at IT Tralee.

On the epic Game of Thrones TV show, the Iron Throne was constructed by Aegon I Targaryen, the first king of the Seven Kingdoms. He made it from the swords surrendered by his enemies. Legend has it, it’s made of a thousand swords that took 59 days to hammer out into a throne. Spikes and jagged edges in every direction make this one very intimidating lounge. Fancosmic's HBO licensed replica measures over 7’4” in height, 5'11" in depth and 5'5" in width. Also on display are HBO licensed replicas the Crown of Joffrey Baratheon and Jaime Lannister’s sword.

“IT Tralee are pulling out all the stops to bring a sense of fun and excitement on campus for students, staff, and the public alike. Now, to add to the events for Freshers’ Week and to add to the fun in Tralee as a whole, you’re invited to be enjoy Fancosmic’s ‘Iron Throne Experience’. This is yet another perk of studying at IT Tralee or being in the vicinity of our campus! Unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, calling it “impressive” is an understatement and the fact that IT Tralee is the first third level institute to host The Throne is a huge honour for us.” says IT Tralee Student Union President Steve Clifford.

Tickets are available (ITT students/staff free with ID) at the event from €10 and include seated professional photos.  September 14/15 Open Times: ITT Students/Staff 10am to 6pm & General Public 2pm to 6pm.

Why not dress up for the occasion, and take a photo with your henchmen or handmaidens? The only decision is what house colours will you wear?
