By far one of the best experiences I had while in Northern Ireland (and Ireland, quite honestly). I leveraged one of the "black cab" tours and had a guide that was actively involved during the troubled times. Since it was just me, I was allowed...More

Very interesting to see these murals which depicting religious division of town. 2000 murals have been documented since the 1970s. Not all murals are political or sectarian in nature.

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.

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
