If you're not keen on walking, take a bus or a taxi but make sure to visit west Belfast. The road is nice to see, interesting and full of history. I would recomend to make a few historical research before any trip to Belfast to ensure a good understanding of what you'll witness in terms of recent history and meaning.

Visited on the city bus tour, well worth the money as you get to see just how small the city 'problem' areas are and how close together they are. So sad the barriers are still there and increasing.

The falls road and shankill road were once separated by the iron gates, however it's a great chance to see the community and the peace wall

The highlight for me was seeing a piece of Belfast history by seeing the long peace wall. It was sad to travel past the gates that are locked each night to separate the people in Falls Road and Shankill Road.

Murals must have been produced by people really skilful, they are fantastic. Falls Rd itself is just like most busy roads in the UK except you do see a few Irish flags flying. Good experience to visit for sure

The walls that line the road are all painted murals that depict peace. They are a must see and can be viewed from the City Sightseeing bus. The walls are near the peace walls and murals so can all be done on one walk around the suburb.

I grew up in London, during the Northern Ireland troubles, something that constantly came up on the news on a daily basis was the goings on in Belfast, particularly West Belfast, the Falls and Shankill roads. I have been to Belfast many times now, especially now that I live in Dublin, but never ventured up to West Belfast, so to... More
