The whole area contains murals, they all tell a story. A story of struggle and hope; joy and fear. To some these persons are hero's to others villains. When you look on these pictures of many who are now dead you realise just how sad this world can be, and yet we must all have hope of a better tomorrow

Fantastic to see all these murals full of history, nationalism, politics, community, groups related to community and political tension from the past and still present under the skin. These murals are pieces of art! One can see a former checkpoint and let us hope it will be a reminder to keep the peace in future. Must see to learn more... More

Bit of a dump really, the whole area is in need of money ploughed into it. Rubbish on streets, run down is being nice about it. Visiting next year and hopefully it's improved.

Visited falls road as part of the Black Cab tour. After seeing the shankill area we crossed through the gates of the peace wall to the republican side of the suburbs and learned more about what it was like growing up in the area during 'The Troubles'

If someone wants to know the rest of the story, you have to go to the Falls Road area. There is so much information visually presented, it helps to understand the tumultous time.
