I took this tour twice. I wanted to hear from Irish and British tour guides point of view. All Irish born but some considered themselves as Irish and some British. Once they stared explaining the infamous troubles...it was pretty dark...your accent could get you killed....More

Going down Shankill road is an eyeopener to what has been going on in Belfast during "The troubles" many impressive murials with messages from two sides of the divides.

Taking a tour of the city of Belfast brings you to Shankill Road. The site of many conflicts between the residents of Belfast, this area of the city is growing and thriving. Great tour

Recommend visiting this area of Belfast either on foot or on a bus tour. Bus tour offers the benefit of telling you about the history of the area.
