My family and i stayed in a bed and breakfast on our first night, of our Northern Ireland Holiday. My wife whom is from Derry, was slightly apprehensive about being on Falls road, as days gone by are not only fresh in her mind, but in the Murals and posters dotted up and down the Road. I am from Stockport... More

Place is full of history, I suggest taking the black cab taxi tour around this area....plus don't forget to stop into the Crown for a pint!

Some of the dark history of the conflict between Protestants and Catholics is reflected in the many murals found in this area - on the surface colorful but with a very 'black and white' message. Be happy guided by any one of the established taxi guide companies who are in Belfast (we chose the Black Taxi Tours - highly recommended!),... More

Long gone are the days when this place attracted anything like the number of visitors that it used to. They came for one thing and one thing only and that was the paramilitary murals which have now all but vanished. Most have been replaced with socialist -leaning ones. The road itself is shabby and can be dangerous at night if... More

Fantastic living history 3 D. The murals and monuments are a powerful reminder of the history of oppression ,sectarianism of the catholic people of Belfast and the civil rights movement. Well worth a visit very interesting indeed.

We drove along the Falls and Shankill roads with our pre-teen kids on our holiday to Northern Ireland. Not really appropriate to 'rate' the experience, but though-provoking and the best GCSE history lesson my daughter will probably ever had.

What a horrible place where people still let their dogs foul all over the streets. The shops all had grills over the windows and some refused to take English notes.

We spent a few hours walking along the Falls Rd and also the Shanklin Rd. We had heard the stories from the hop-on hop-off bus the day before and decided to get off and explore ourselves the next day. You can take a cab-tour but we decided not to. The murals jump out at you as you walk along, things... More
