  • Worth a look. We went there as a part of the Taxi tour, which was absolutely worth the time. Very interesting to compare the murals on the west and east side of the city. 
  • Visited as part of our package at hotel. Really informative tour guide. Well worth visiting. Incredibly sad history 
  • Explored on foot, its a very short stretch of mural in a run down area of the City. I appreciate the context. Just wasnt that pleasant an experience on a rainy, grey, December day. Glad I visited beca...  more »

  • Very interesting experience. Taxi tour took us to both the Catholic and Protestant neighborhoods of Belfast. Amazing to see a wall in a residential area.
  • I loved the area and wanted to understand the troubles and how two such different communities could live so close and apart. Walking from Shankill to falls road is a real trip between two worlds that now seem to be willing to live in peace, hopefully.
  • Was sobering to experience this wall. It will be a better day when both communities are ready to take it down. There is no Us and Them, there's only Us.
  • It's kinda heavy feeling around this place. Recent history there. It is worth a visit if you have a guider.
  • It's used to divide the different religions but has become a modern graffiti art wall.
