  • Really painful that remains that wall in Belfast. However, a visit to the two areas of graffiti shows clearly that the conflict won't find a solution so simple or immediate. While follow paying cult to manifestations of hate Street, hardly will you can pass page. The wall itself, it's nothing special, but its meaning makes it a must-see

  • 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.
