  • Such a shock to see such a huge wall in the middle of Belfast. And so well established. The amount I'd comments and the visitors who have been are fascinating. Hope one day it can go.  more »
  • It was a moving experience to write our prayers for world peace among so many others who have left their mark on this wall.  more »
  • Didn't realise this was still in existence. Very thought provoking. Find it hard to believe that the peace gates are still closed every evening and opened each morning  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.
