Shankhill Road is a Protestant neighborhood in West Belfast. This place was the scene of many battles during the Troubles. I strongly encourage visitors to have a local guide. The neighborhood is tough with much public housing projects and a local guide will let the neighborhood know that you are OK. Our guide told us that we were probably being... More

Walking the residential streets teaches a lot about the history and current efforts to make a better future.

Very moving murals along the Peace wall symbolizing the violence that took place here in the 70's. Very interesting and enlightening. Brings it home.

Having watched the troubles on the to in the 70's it was good to see the different side of this area and how things have changed and to see the murals.

You cannot go to one part of the troubles in Belfast without going to the other. All make you think, sadden you and hope that this peace agreement lasts as the people of Northern Ireland deserve it

I thought the troubles were long past. But this is still a city still bitterly divided by religious and political apartheid. The murals tell the story. When walls are removed, they must be preserved somewhere as a museum so no one will ever forget. The murals, the names and pictures of so much terror and so many victims horrified and... More

A must see place when visiting Belfast. Makes one realise just how much the city has experienced in the not too distant past - hopefully it is in the past.

Travelled around Belfast in an open top bus and this was part of the route, including the peace wall and falls road and Crumlin Road. Excellent way to see the city

I live in USA and like America, Northern Ireland has had its own problem with hate and discrimination. Northern Ireland is dealing with it and someday will be into its past. Meanwhile, this conflict has left beautiful Murals for the world to see. In fact, I am told in Belfast alone, there are over 25 Miles of beautiful murals. Someday... More
