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

We took the Black Cab Tour to view this history laden neighborhood. The murals are powerful testimony to the human condition these troubles created. The memorial parks are equally telling as are the defensive measures erected in the form of cages, walls and wire. Our guide was able to give us personal anecdotes about some of the people depicted upon... More

Did this as part of our bus tour. It is very interesting and gave us a great insight into another part of Belfast. Very historic! Worth a visit whilst in Belfast!

We visited Belfast to learn more about the Troubles. Our Tour guide was Jack Duffin who is a Republican and Ex Official IRA member. We worried at first that his main objective was to get his political message across to tourists, but found him to be a knowledgable, warm, friendly guy who just wants to tell his story from his...
