You either love it or hate it as someone said in a previous review. For me I'm not into religion and there is not much to see here. Not fussed on the murals and the houses down this way don't look well kept.

This little area shows what working class Unionist/Loyalist Belfast is like - a busy shopping street but with too many empty units. The mural is good quality and genuinely iconic. Visit early to midday or thereabouts on 12th July if you can.

We were here for the 12th so we got to see the locals in full force. They are a happy, fun loving, proud bunch of people. The area is a bit run down but that only adds to the history. My parents always spoke of this place as a dangerous place to be, but we felt safe and very welcomed.

Literally nothing that would make you want to come here. Very run down and grotty few streets near the city centre.

Very nice area with lots of history. Plenty of bars and restaurants to chose from. Lots of little shops as well. Feels very local here.

Our tour guide Paul grew up in the Sandy Row area and still lives there with his family. His local knowledge was fantastic and it was a very interesting tour. He explained the history of the area including the industries in which most of the locals worked in the late 1800s & early 1900s. Unfortunately all of these industries have... More

Great fun, great atmosphere. Loads of places to eat and drink. We stayed in the days hotel just at the end of sandy row. Was amazing, great nights sleep, great service. Close enough to everything we wanted to see/do.

I'd read the reviews so decided to walk along Sandy Row and am so glad I did. The people were friendly and it felt safe. It's great to see such rich cultural history and the murals are worth seeing. If you start near the bridge there are walk tours and some information.
