One of the most heart wrenching parts of our entire trip to Ireland. Make sure you have a guide or at least good literature to accompany you that will spell out the historical significance. So much pain in this city. i am happy to see that it is in the past but we cannot forget what happened.

Seen these on the TV, but very emotional when you see them for real. That and the evidence of high fencing and metal gates makes you appreciate what the Irish people had to live with. Ne c etc really understood the background to these until coming to visit here.

These are all over the place in Belfast. The tour can be very informational and interesting. The history of Northern Ireland is painful and the murals call that out

The murals in the Falls are truly inspiring . they will make you think and cry. they depict the troubles and the murders on Bloody Sunday. Make you say a prayer for peace. Did not like the murals on the Shankill side. Depict a hatred for the minority Catholics. Hoping for peace!

As a local I was interested to learn what tour guides, bus guides, taxi drivers, told tourists about our city's history. While they are informative, by no stretch of the imagination are thy unbiased. I am not sure that it is even possible for anyone brought up in Belfast to shrug off their living history. Take the tours, remember that... More

Or just take a black taxi tour and they'll take you to as many as possible. Possibly the most illuminating experience as far as current local history is concerned

Walking in the Protestant section - Shankill Rd. mainly and the Catolic one - Fall Rd. mainly and observing the murals is somethink unique. It gives you some understanding of the situation that ended less than 20 years ago, If you have a chance use one of the4 local guides or Taxi driver4 and you will be more knowledable.

Being basque I was curious to see the political walls and they didn't disappoint me. Some of them were very well made and others had a strong message...

Very interesting. Do a black taxi tour. The tour will vary depending on if your driver is Catholic or Protestant. The driver will probably bring you on the to the Protestant side of the "peace line" (wall with the murals on the catholic side) the Protestant side is plain but you can add your signature on that side. A stop... More

One of the best parts of my trip to Belfast was being able to sign the Belfast peace wall. Some of Belfast's history is not nice and after speaking to people from Belfast, they do not try to hide this. Very moving and sad to here about the difficulties and struggles in Belfast and I am very glad that I... More
