Murals

Murals along the road tell you something about today`s approach of this historic scenery. Derelict area seems to be dangerous. Don`t park your car and leave.

from a place famous for conflict is a location for us to all learn about forgiveness and humanity. To truly get a feel for this place I would reccomend a tour.

After some of seeing the frankly disgraceful murals in East Belfast, the wall of international murals on the Falls was a pleasant surprise. They are full of positive messages of peace and hope rather than the paramilitary iconography and triumphalism of the loyalist murals. The Falls is also not awash with flags which is nice, and there is an excellent... More

I always feel quite sad whenever I see tourists taking photographs of the murals as I feel it is glorifying the past...the years when so many innocent people were killed on both sides of the religious divide. I feel exactly the same way about the murals on the Shankill Road so this is not a politicial statement...rather it is from... More

The Falls Rd Belfast is just an ordinary road in a biggish city and happens to have become famous due to what I grew up with - the Troubles. But theres so much more to it than this. Its well worth a visit to just meet the people. Friendly, witty, full of banter, - its hard to beat a west... More

This is a real eye opener, so interesting to witness what we have all been watching and listening to over the decades. Sad stories are told and unbelievable hatred that still exists, guides are very good so if you are in Belfast take the journey.

Very interesting space, but be prepared for some sad material. The tension in belfast is still high. It is amazing to see the murals and how the space has been transformed, but it is also very upsetting to see that it is still very much divided.

Really enjoyed this tour and what struck me the most was the unbiased view of the tour operator which I really liked. The murals were amazing and each one had a piece of history behind it .

Having visited the Shankill Road it was striking to see the contrast between the two communities in this part of West Belfast. The murals of the Falls road were impressive but the road itself needs some economic regeneration as it feels very depressing. Compared with the Shankill there was less people, less shops and less traffic.
