Sorry for the drift. Carry on!

Totally true - we did not do any GOT touring in Northern Ireland as: (1) Of our group of 5, I was the only one who watches the show (and reads the books), and (2) I don't really care that much about where things are filmed. But our guide, when we discussed GOT, pointed lots out to me anyway. We saw where a few scenes were filmed:

A. Arya climbing out of the canal onto the steps in Braavos was filmed in a town called Glencloy

A pub with some of the carved doors in located near Ballintoy Harbor

And a bunch of Iron Islands Scenes and Renley Baratheon's camp were filmed near the Rope Bridge - Carrick-a-Rede
