You'll get different opinions on Sandy Row no matter who you talk to. Some will tell you to stay away while others will say you need to visit. Both are right and wrong (with respect).
It depends on the type of person you are and what you want to see in Belfast?
Sandy Row is one of the famous traditional heartlands of Belfast. A once big, prosperous, vibrant area like many others over time and due to The Troubles it has declined and today is a disadvantaged area of Belfast.
If your into the history of Belfast, want to see some Loyalist/Protestant/Unionist murals (wall paintings) and talk with some locals on the street or in the local shops then I would advise taking a walk down Sandy Row.
Tourists and students are actually now normal in this area so there should be no problems by walking around the area. At night through I would advise not walking through Sandy Row. But then I could say the same about alot of other areas of Belfast. You could walk through 99/100 times and be perfectly fine but its probably not worth the risk or hassle.
