Political Tour of the Murals

We invite you to walk the streets of the city on both sides of the Peace Wall.

Our guide has had the opportunity to hear the testimonies of former political prisoners from both communities and their personal stories, conveying their message and local culture throughout the tour.

This is a unique opportunity that will allow you to learn details of the facts you won't get in the history books about that turbulent period of the Contemporary Age.

Explore up close, on foot, the city's world-famous murals that earn its reputation as the world's largest outdoor art gallery, and understand the stories behind them.

It starts at Divis Street in front of Radio Fáilte.
Price £12 per person

Tour description

To begin, we will learn the story behind the murals of the Falls road neighborhood and the Republican ideology. We will witness the desire of this community to be part of the Republic of Ireland.

On the second part of the tour, we will pass through the gates that form part of the Peace Wall in English, and once we cross, we will be in the neighborhood of Shankill Road, a predominantly Protestant area. You will witness the determination of the locals who wish to continue to belong to the United Kingdom and you will have the opportunity to see up close the Wall of Peace, a wall that remains there to this day, physically dividing both communities.
