Our political walking tour allows visitors to understand the British/Irish conflict from several perspectives. Visit the nationalist republican Falls Road area with its spectacular murals on the world famous International Wall and the unionist loyalist Shankill Road, as well as the mural marking the historic hunger strikes of 1981. This is dominated by the character and persona of Bobby Sands.
Each leg of the tour will be guided by a former political prisoner from the area. Our political tour is an exploration of both republican and loyalist perspectives. It is also a personal tour because both guides will have played and keep playing a role in their community. We feel this tour is perfect for those seeking to understand the roots of the recent phase of the British/Irish conflict and how it still impacts today’s life in Belfast.
- Three hour guided tour offering comprehensive background into the conflict
- Guides are an ex-political prisoner from the loyalist side, and an ex-political prisoner from the Republican side, offering both perspectives of the story
- Visiting key sites in West Belfast
