Sandy Row used to be a great place for shopping. the only decent shop left is Reids. The rest of Sandy Row is falling down, and it needs money spent on it. The people are hidden away in their houses, and there are no shops.

We were staying in the ETAP Hotel and decided to walk down this area as we saw the Union Jack and St George Cross flags. There is a mural depicting William of Orange. This was put up to replace the UVF mural that was there. The flags were a bit off putting but it was during the day and there... More

Although the once ominous but starkingly proud mural has now been painted over with a more historic but just as eyecatching mural I would still recommend a visit to this part of Belfast. The residents are more than friendly and when I asked where I could see some.of their history was shown round by a middle aged woman who gave... More

While in Belfast this is a must see because it is part of the culture of Belfast. It allows visitors of Belfast to try to get an understanding of the dynamics of Belfast. We recommend that you hire a guide or least go during the day.

You'll get different opinions on Sandy Row no matter who you talk to. Some will tell you to stay away while others will say you need to visit. Both are right and wrong (with respect). It depends on the type of person you are and what you want to see in Belfast? Sandy Row is one of the famous traditional... More

Very rundown, itimidating murals and flags everywhere and crowds standing at street corners at night time. If you are not from here you will be in trouble stay well clear at night time as i have known a few people to get a kicking. You will be welcome though if you are a hardcore loyalist and a bigot.

I passed by this area of Belfast when I took the open bus tours. And what I can say about this place, is that it is full of history. I shows a lot of murals that represents a lot of what Belfast's history.
