After hearing the bad things about this part of the town I thought I'd make a visit. I couldn't find anything bad about this lovely part of town. There appears to be a beautiful community spirit here, with lovely murals and displays of remembrance for the people who has lost their lives. It's also worth sitting down and having some... More

A pretty depressing area of Belfast that has had it's share of trouble. Everyone in the area is friendly and make you feel welcome. Stop off at one of the bars for a drink and chat to the locals.

Took the hop on/hop off bus and wanted to walk this area. Many great murals which showed the political unrest in the 1960's.

Shankill, going back a few hundred years, this is the oldest settlement, and Belfast is an extension of the Shankill. Full of cultural history. A must for any culture vulture! :-)

This is bleak. Seriously. In fairness to the people living there you hope that this is not (as another reviewer puts it) "what Loyalism is all about" ?

I can recommend to visit the Shankill road and falls road. I would highly recommend a trip with the black caps. Get taken a picture in front of peace wall - write a greeting. You will gain an insight into the background of the disagreement between prostanterne and Catholics. It is touching, sad and historic. See the areas close to.... More

Came with family to see various martial art events. Easy to find as fairly well signposted. Free entry for spectators. Just a pity there were few to support it. World class Karate, Judo, Wrestling and Taekwondo with competitors from all over the world. Once in a lifetime event right on our door step.
