To take the Falls Road you think that your are seeing the old and bad history of the Irish Religious wars, but sadly, they haven't gone away. This is a road that you want to view as part of a tour. To walk the streets alone would not be safe. The Catholics and Protestants still hate each others guts. Thankfully... More

The 'Falls' is best seen on foot. Start your journey in the city centre at the Belfast Metropolitan college (commonly known at the Black-man tech) or North Street and walk along Divis Street. The first part of the journey (5-10mins depending on how fit you are) is not so interesting crossing over the Westlink bypass … however fortune favours the... More

When we travel we tend to aim to see and experience things that please our senses. This is not one of those things...but we need to see it to remind ourselves how fragile our peace is, and how hatred and intolerance of any kind shape the lives of generations...

This was a 10 min bus ride from the city centre. The murals we saw here are an eye opener on the troubles, for most of us it was just a evening news story. This and the ones we saw in Londonderry bring to reality.

We were shown this as part of Paddy's Black Cab Tour (highly recommend) and thought it is a must see in order to truly understand the history and the troubles that Northern Ireland have been through. Fascinating place to see and explore.

Walked The Falls Road and Shankill. While the bombs and shootings have all but stopped, attitudes remain hardened, 'Peace Fences' remain and its hard to see things changing especially after speaking to both Catholics and Protestants.
