Belfast: Political Conflict 3-Hour Walking Tour

2. Belfast: Political Conflict 3-Hour Walking Tour

Venture beyond the guidebooks and explore Belfast through the political conflict known as The Troubles. Walk the streets on both sides of the Peace Line with men and women who were intimately involved as combatants in the period known as The Troubles.  Hear stories from both the Republican and Loyalist communities about the effects of the conflict, and get explanations about the political murals that tell the history and culture of the area from a unique perspective. Start by meeting a Republican ex-political prisoner for a guided walk along the infamous Falls Road. See visible signs of the community's desire to be part of an Irish Republic.  Then, pass through the electronically-controlled gates to the predominately Protestant area of Shankill Road, where you will meet with either a Loyalist ex-political prisoner or an ex-member of the security forces who is from the area. Investigate the determination of the locals who wish to remain part of the United Kingdom. For more than 30 years, The Troubles have had a powerful impact on the city and its residents. Very few people were unaffected by the violence, and everyone has a tale to tell. Investigate the real stories beyond the history books with first-hand accounts from those intimately involved.  Explore the world’s largest, outdoor art gallery as you examine the many murals, and get the opportunity to sign the Peace Wall and leave your thoughts alongside those of Bill Clinton and the Dalai Lama.

We learned SO much by doing this tour and got to go to places I probably wouldn't have otherwise. We were on a time crunch and knew we wanted part of our trip to focus on the history of Northern Ireland, so this was perfect. It was such a cool experience to sign the Peace Wall and our guide did a wonderful job of staying unbiased while sharing his personal experience.

The black cab tour was amazing. Our guide Marty was humourous and very informative. It was a brilliant insight into the areas of Belfast, we as a group wouldn't have been very aware of before our visit.

Absolutely 10/10 from start to finish. Martin made the whole experience so enjoyable and was so knowledgeable, would definitely recommend booking if you’re in Belfast!

Tony was an excellent guide for the Belfast mural tour. The information he gave was fantastic, super interesting and comprehensive. Definitely a must do in Belfast.

Interesting and very informative tour of west belfast peace wall and the history of conflict.
