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.

This seems like a relic of a period of Northern Ireland's history that continues to haunt its future. So to truly understand the changes afoot the Shankhill, Peace Wall and Falls Road are a pre requisite of any trip to Belfast, can be done by taxi tour or otherwise.

This is the place to go to see some of the famous wall murals in Belfast -- in the protestant Loyalist part of town. Take a tour (bus or black cab) to hear the history. These pictures tell the important and moving history of the conflicts during the "Troubles" in Ireland. You have to see this neighbourhood to really get... More

I'm putting this review at very good as it gave us a great insight to how people live and how they still live a life of crime and hatred towards republicans. Some very scary murals there that even some of the local mothers didn't want their children to see and put up a different one. My daughter was wearing her... More

It is impossible to appreciate this without seeing it. The murals are amazing and thought provoking. History portrayed in art is so powerful. This is not an area to go to in the evening or night time. It is a reminder of what the troubles have done, should we ever forget. Thank you for this art.

We walked to Shankill Road to seek out the murals, and no doubt we missed some, but you can take a taxi tour, and there were plenty of tourists taking advantage of this. It is a fascinating area and worth taking time to explore.

One of the two areas where it is not intelligent to be of the other religion.Sure things are a lot safer now & less aggressive but not somewhere you would choose to live or visit after dark.
