Taking a trip down the Falls Road was quite amazing but l also felt a sense of sadness. The murals on the walls were absolutely fascinating and truly works of art. The people we met however were very friendly and keen to tell you their own experiences.

Well worth spending more time in this place than we did. Would love to visit some of the local pubs. The murals are really works of art

We visited Falls Road with our college children. They were born around the time the worst of the conflict in the area ended. It was very interesting to see where so much turmoil had taken place. It served as a good learning lesson for all of us about how tragic the violence was and how horrific some of the incidents... More

This is the place to go to see the famous wall murals in Belfast -- in the Irish republican part of town. Take a tour (bus or black cab) to hear the history. Check out the most famous ones, like the Bobby Sands mural. These pictures tell the important and moving history of the conflicts during the "Troubles" in Ireland.... More

We traveled along the road as part of a black cab tour - really brings the troubles to life. I would recommend doing this as part of the black cab tour to really understand the troubles.

We drove along Falls Road on the first day of our holiday to Northern Ireland and am really glad we did, it was very interesting seeing the wall murals and flags everywhere and then driving along Shankill Road - brought the recent political history of N.I. to life

I found this very interesting. People can tell you about this but seeing is so different. I would only go here in daylight hours as I feel it would be very different at night or evening. It is an area where there are so many Irish Flags that is difficult to describe. I think the murals and Flags are very... More

It is best to take a Black Taxi Tour for this experience to learn about the changes that have been taking place in the area.
