Before writing this review I browsed through what others thought of the Falls Road as a tourist attraction in Belfast. The murals are fascinating and yes the area does have a rough and rather depressing feel to it. However it must be remembered that these places despite their appeal to tourists are first and foremost the homes of ordinary citizens as it must be remembered that many of the conflicts within the troubles were fought largely on ordinary streets and in highly 'working class' communities.
Personally I found the rustic appearance of the Falls Road and its murals an accurate reflection of Belfast's character; a bustling city trying to rebuild itself from a period of internal turmoil, whilst honouring those who sacrificed their freedom and as the Bobby Sands mural reminds us their lives for their cause. I will note here that I am neutral to the political divide in Northern Ireland; I feel the exact same way about the murals honouring Loyalist patrons in the neighbouring Shankhill Road.
