    So worth the time!
    Excellent context for the conflict. Tobey was an amazing guide. Totally engaged our teenager. Very balance perspective on this complex issues. The walls are inspiring and beautiful if somewhat heart breaking at times.

    Well worth a visit if you enjoy history and street art.
    Well worth a visit.It really is an interesting place and only when you see it in person can you begin to understand the gravitas of the troubles 20-30 years before. The art works are incredible. We were on a tour bus when visiting which I think is wise given how long the wall is! I'd suggest a window seat for the best views.

    A must see for the amount of history and pain it has
    It’s a must see just because of all the pain it caused and the physical divide it’s left on Ireland. The murals and history are beautiful and paint such a grim picture. That being said it is murals grafited on a brick wall so outside of the history there’s not much there, massively reccommend just for all the messages though.

    Peace Wall poignancy
    One of the most surreal parts of the city and very difficult to find the words to describe the experience. A poignant reminder of the troubled history of the city. History that clearly still bubbles under the surface while the scars are busy at least trying to heal. The messages and artwork are interesting, heartfelt, sad, happy, every cliche you can think of. Maybe you need to be from Belfast to truly 'get' what it means to be a part of it. A very moving monument to what the city holds in it's memory.

    Give Peace A Chance
    Growing up in the 80's I was aware of the conflict in Northern Ireland and "The Troubles" but I had never been to Belfast. Visiting the area around Shankhill Road and Falls Road was an eye opener for me. Whilst I was there I saw lots of people on coach tours and taxi tours however I was exploring on foot which was easier for me. I had not realised that there was a huge wall separating the two areas due to their religion. Nowadays it is a wall of peace and a poignant reminder to the past but now it has been transformed with amazing street art and messages of love and positivity. Long may it reign!

Worth stopping to take in the messages the images are portraying but wouldn’t make a special journey as some of it has changed or been overwritten/drawn by less artistic residents, still a powerful message being relayed & the troubles of the past are still very evident!

I think the idea of this is good.
But most of the street art looks like it has been defaced by regular graffiti over written on some meaningful artwork.

I have studied a lot about the history of Northern Ireland and The Troubles so it was absolutely fascinating to visit the Peace Wall having read so much about it. It's such a big part of the history of the UK but one most Brits outside of Northern Ireland are dismally unaware of. The wall is a must for any Brit looking to understand the history of our country.

If you're interested in visiting the Peace Walls that divided neighbourhood from neighbourhood then these will provide some understanding of what it must have been like. Today, they are also covered in messages and graffiti.
