Walking in the Protestant section - Shankill Rd. mainly and the Catolic one - Fall Rd. mainly and observing the murals is somethink unique. It gives you some understanding of the situation that ended less than 20 years ago, If you have a chance use one of the4 local guides or Taxi driver4 and you will be more knowledable.

Being basque I was curious to see the political walls and they didn't disappoint me. Some of them were very well made and others had a strong message...

Very interesting. Do a black taxi tour. The tour will vary depending on if your driver is Catholic or Protestant. The driver will probably bring you on the to the Protestant side of the "peace line" (wall with the murals on the catholic side) the Protestant side is plain but you can add your signature on that side. A stop... More

One of the best parts of my trip to Belfast was being able to sign the Belfast peace wall. Some of Belfast's history is not nice and after speaking to people from Belfast, they do not try to hide this. Very moving and sad to here about the difficulties and struggles in Belfast and I am very glad that I... More

I took the Hop On, Hop Off bus around Belfast, and it included the Murals. Use your camcorder on your cell phone to see them at your leisure later. The bus guide explained the history of that period, which I remembered when he explained it. This gives you a perspective on Belfast recent history and helps explain the intense political... More

We really enjoyed our tour and it was the reason we booked a bus tour to Belfast in the first place. We were met at the Titanic Museum by our guide Gerry who promptly took our family of 4 on a fascinating tour of the murals and a nationalist perspective of life during The Troubles in Belfast. His commentary was... More

We've done the mural tour with "NI Black Taxi Tours" (info@niblacktaxitours.com) company and I highly recommend it. Mark was our guide and he was really kind. While driving he explain us all the history and wanted us to ask him all the doubt we have. We also wanted to visit the Belfast Castle and the Mural Tour + The Castle... More

If you want to learn more about the troubles and the strife the Belfast people went to this is a MusT. The murals are excellent and portray both sides of the conflict

There is no doubt that the wall murals of Belfast are worth visiting as they offer a look at the history of the country albeit from the perspective of whatever side of the community you are visiting. Never the less, they are art and are full of emotion. You can get a weekly bus ticket from kiosks at the City... More

I had heard much about these murals before I came to Belfast and wanted to get to see them all. Local friends recommended that I see them by the famous Black Taxis of Belfast and this was definitely good advice. Our driver seemed to know where every mural was located and was able to give us the history behind each... More
