The Famous Black Cab Mural Tour

Belfast is a changed city a much more peaceful city its a city that has witnessed 35 years of sectarian and political violence and the reminders are still here. I lived in Belfast through the "troubles" and now as a driver and guide I show our great city to our ever increasing numbers of visitors who are interested in seeing for themselves what many watched on their tv screens. The artwork/murals, peace walls, divisions, security measures, it is still part of daily life for us, places that where once no-go areas are now open to all, a city that was once a war zone has become a must see for people from all around the world, the black cab tour is the only way to get a real feel for the city, its past , present, and future. I look forward to meeting you all , welcome to Belfast. Pat.


Meeting place is prearranged between customer and guide, travelling in a very comfortable cab around the city to do some "sightseeing" and a little bit of old Belfast before we leave the city centre and make our way to west Belfast . The Falls Rd and the Shankill Rd names that hit the headlines around the world, the incredible concrete walls that continue to divide the people and the centuries of history behind it all. lt is our aim to ensure that all our visitors enjoy their time in Belfast leaving the city with a better understanding and more knowledgeable insight of Belfast and Ireland. Tour duration approx 2-45mins to 3hrs.
