The murals are a remnant of the Troubles as they are depicted on the walls separating the neighborhoods of Belfast. The murals are well done and worth seeing, depicting both sides. Sadly they are still present and the passages thru the walls are mostly still...More

Not only are these murals vibrant and well painted, they also portray the time of the Troubles form both the Unionist (Protestant) and the Catholic points of view. Highly recommend seeing them with a guide.

Took a discreet walk along the Falls Road to look at the famous (or infamous) Republican murals on a recent tour of Belfast, having never seen them live before. Despite being from the Republic many miles from Northern Ireland and not being a supporter of...More

Visited the Murals of West Belfast late in the evening, on a cold and windy day, so maybe that made it even more heart-wrenching. As you walk along the streets you might come across residents who will volunarily stop and tell you stories about the...More
