Using the Red Bus tour & having got my bearings I got off by the Peace Mural & walked along the Shankhill Road then turned left onto the Falls Road, I wanted to get a feel for the communities & area & check out the street art/murals. Maybe I was naïve but these are simply two housing areas with mains... More

I walked from the Europa to Falls Road then across the Peace Wall and back down Shankill. I stopped in a few shops and bars and mingled with the most friendly folks in the world...I recommend getting off the bus or taxis and walking this route. It is hard to believe the past problems in this area with all the... More

Visit the Shankill and visit the Falls, both streets are symbols of two different religions, two different political ideologies two different cultures, two different flags but visit them they look the same, the people are the same, they have the same problems and truth be told they are closer than even they know. Both streets run parallel to each other... More

To understand the conflict in the North you should visit the local pubs and republican murals, graveyards, monuments, to get both sides of the story visit the Shankill Road in a black cab tour.

In stark contrast to some other parts of Belfast which tourists will be visiting, The Falls is representative of the poverty which now exists in Industrial Victorian Cities across the UK. The murals which adorn walls along the road, depicting domestic and international political messages, smack of bitterness, and fail to help promote what should be a more positive Post-Conflict...

Interesting, especially for tourists... but it could do with a touch of paint to spruce it up, and more could be added! Perhaps that's just the view of a belfastian that sees it all the time though :)

The only way to understand this road is to do so with a local otherwise it's just road with rough murals We did our tour with Brendan who explained the reality of living there thank goodness the troubles are nearly over It's a shame for both sides It's thought provoking it's just crazy it's still like this U

There is some mediocre street art on the walls. Nothing of any significance. The area is not that safe and not recommended for toursits.

I'm not entirely sure what makes Falls St. an attraction. Yes, it has that creepy feeling of olden days but I'm not sure as to its allure. Other than that it is run-down street with questionable attractions. The murals are the only unique thing I would consider worth stopping by and spending more time on - ideally with some local...

A must-do place to go - I just did it on foot and minded my own business. Place felt totally safe on foot, but the raw wounds are still there.
