I visited here last week and thoroughly enjoyed looking at the murals as I walked along. As a lone female I felt safe and no one pays much attention when you stop to take photos,the locals I did encounter were friendly and chatty especially in one of local cafes i went in to have a cuppa and shelter from the...

Did this trip a number of years ago when it was just a local guy in a taxi. It was a trip my mother wanted to make so we booked a day flight from Newcastle one Sunday and asked a taxi driver to take us. It was a bitter sweet tour.

I recently took two young friends visiting from Germany for a car trip along the Falls and they were not impressed at all. All they got from viewing the murals was the evidence of the glorification of murderers that is allowed here. They told me that in their homeland the youth seek to disconnect from the bloodstained past their parents... More

We didn't get to see much of the road. It was part of a Black Taxi Tour. Worth seeing though. Lot of history there.

I very much enjoy travelling up and down the falls, as I have many happy memories doing it as a child, it is free and there is lots to look for all ages.

To get the real story of the Troubles you need to take the Black Cab Tour. We had Seamus and he was a lovely and knowledgable man. The murals in this area will take your breath away. There's just so much history. Don't let people scare you, I was walking around Ardoyne at night (I'm a woman) and had no... More

I returned to Belfast 40 years after serving there as a soilder. I walked into the Adoyne (five minute walk from the Falls) where I once patrolled as a young army commando. I felt a strange feeling and lots of memories came rushing back. I felt very insecure on my own as there was always four of us in my... More

My husband and I took the Black Cab tour of the Falls road and Shankhill Road. Very, very moving! My father was an Irish Canadian who held tight to republican ideals. We followed The Troubles closely via relatives and news. So to be finally able to visit the infamous Falls Road was very moving for me. The black cab "cabbie"... More
