I couldn't tell you how it shocked me. I was aware of history but seeing these walls for real, topped with barbed wire still separating people, made me so sad. I was there with a Catholic Irish friend, I can't imagine how much it distressed him.

Wouldn't go near the place. Full of scumbags and crack heads. All murals portray IRA as victims when in fact they are the victim makers

There is an energy on the Falls Road. I never felt unsafe, just sad. The "Peace Wall" seems inconceivable within the European Union. Necessary? I don't know.

This is another area in Belfast that you must see. We hired a guide so that we could get an understanding of the murals and so forth.

Having heard only bad news from the Falls Road and surrounding areas during the Troubles,I was surprised at how normal the place is. People going about their lives like any other place in the UK - the only things that gave you a clue about what happened there in recent years are the memorial plaques, murals, and of course the...

Great place if you are interested in the troubles there are tours you can take which take you here and to the shankill which are very infroamtive. I would recommend that people go out and explore on their own aswell, there are alot of really fantastic bars and restaurants and the gaelic quarter is brilliant aswell.

The famous Falls Road is the main road through west Belfast in Northern Ireland. The neighbouring Shankill Road is predominantly loyalist which you can tell you are there by the red, white and blue curbside markings and union jacks flying on every street post.
