This is ideal for taking pictures of murals of the troubles, it's got shops which aren't aimed at tourists, worth a visit

Certainly something that attracts tourists to Belfast is the inner city residential areas with all their colourful murals, of course depending on what side of the divide they are, they either represent the republican catholic nationalism and messages of freedom, or the loyalist protestant patriotism to Britain and the vow to never stand down. Sandy Row is definitely up there... More

There is some nice murals along Sandy Row - and walking tours are available. Its a short street but has very artistic and historic along the buildings and side streets.

Sandy Row is just one example of many walls defaced with reminders of the battles that people of Northern Ireland have lived through to tell the tale and paint a picture on the side of a building.

How is sandy row even a thing to visit?! Its one street with a few shops in it and a mural. The shops are nice but more for locals, nothing really tourists could buy unless they want shoes from Clarks. The mural is lovely though so maybe stop and take a picture of it I guess :)

During the day it was peaceful and although it was my first time and thought i would feel a bit unsafe i actually felt at ease. No dodgy looks or trouble. We returned at night and the... More
