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

What an interesting road to travel. It opens ones eyes by far into what one side believes over the other. You almost have a sense of fear travelling along this road and even getting out of the vehicle not knowing how they might react. interesting history lesson for sure

After going along the road on the hop-on hop-off bus the day before we decided to walk it the next day. We grew up with the name of this road on the TV for many years. We had just missed a grand parade celebrating 100 years of the Somme amongst other things. The road was a sea of union flags,... More

Moved beyond words to be able to see some of Belfast history depicted in such an artistic manner. Almost to the point of feeling airy. An amazing place to visit and get a slight sense of the lost of life for the gain of rights and a voice.

We went here and to the Falls Road to see the murals and see for ourselves one of the areas in Belfast connected to the troubles. It is a strange feeling to walk along this road where so much has happened and yet look around you and see community life going on as usual. The murals are stunning and while... More
