The murals in the Falls are truly inspiring . they will make you think and cry. they depict the troubles and the murders on Bloody Sunday. Make you say a prayer for peace. Did not like the murals on the Shankill side. Depict a hatred for the minority Catholics. Hoping for peace!

As a local I was interested to learn what tour guides, bus guides, taxi drivers, told tourists about our city's history. While they are informative, by no stretch of the imagination are thy unbiased. I am not sure that it is even possible for anyone brought up in Belfast to shrug off their living history. Take the tours, remember that... More

Or just take a black taxi tour and they'll take you to as many as possible. Possibly the most illuminating experience as far as current local history is concerned

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
