Shankill Road - a major part of Belfast's history

Shankill Road figured prominently in Belfast's "Troubles". You will see Shankill Road if you are on the Black Cab Tour.

Busy road with lots of murals related to the different Belfast communities. Once a dangerous street with lots of troubles and tension. Now peaceful, but still showing focus on group and politics. Must see, these murals are real art!

Worth a visit if only to see the murals and sample a pint or 3. We visited the Rangers bar and found a band playing which we enjoyed listening to. All told it was a great weekend in Belfast.

Colorful and historical murals. No action these days. Very average experience. At least there's a graveyard.

We visited these Wall Murals from our Bus. They told telling stories of the troubled past of Belfast and I found some murals quite sad, especially those depicting mothers and children. We all have heard about these Murals, which are works of art and worth visiting whilst in Belfast.

My comments are the same as for Falls Road area. By visiting theses neighborhoods, people LIVE and work here, are we perpetuating the tensions between the Catholics and Protestants?

Scary place! You are met with murals of RUC soldiers carrying AK46 guns. Not a welcoming sight for tourists. Avoid!

local tour van ushered 13 passengers through both main and secondary streets with wall murals galore telling of the troubled times between citizens loyal to Great Britain and those wishing to remain part of the Republic of Ireland.

The writings and pictures on the walls tell of the history and troubles times as well as the taste it has left. Each time we visited here on our tour and hop on hop off bus we felt a tension in the air. We heard three different people tell its story and from the way it was told you picked... More
