YOu'll hear all about the troubles, and the murals but most people forget one of Ireland's great artists was from this next of the woods (William Conor). He is commemorated at Conor's Corner at the corner of Northumberland Street and the Shankill Road.

After reading one of the articles. I felt I had to make comment on this one in particular. After visiting Northern Ireland for many years. Especially the shankill area of Belfast may I say I definitely agree 100%. Whether it be a food outlet or a bar shop or even the garage at the bottom. Never will you see a... More

Busy road with lots of murals related to the different Belfast communities. Once a dangerous street with lots of troubles and tension. Now peaceful, but still showing focus on group and politics. Must see, these murals are real art!

Worth a visit if only to see the murals and sample a pint or 3. We visited the Rangers bar and found a band playing which we enjoyed listening to. All told it was a great weekend in Belfast.

Colorful and historical murals. No action these days. Very average experience. At least there's a graveyard.

We visited these Wall Murals from our Bus. They told telling stories of the troubled past of Belfast and I found some murals quite sad, especially those depicting mothers and children. We all have heard about these Murals, which are works of art and worth visiting whilst in Belfast.

My comments are the same as for Falls Road area. By visiting theses neighborhoods, people LIVE and work here, are we perpetuating the tensions between the Catholics and Protestants?

Scary place! You are met with murals of RUC soldiers carrying AK46 guns. Not a welcoming sight for tourists. Avoid!
