An award winning academic led tour of the sites of conflict and division across Belfast


This tour visits and explains the major sites of conflict in Belfast before taking customers to the fascinating walls and murals that is the ongoing legacy of the 'Troubles. ' The tour is undertaken by a qualified teacher, author and lecturer in Irish history and includes first-hand accounts of the killings, murders, and bombings of an inter-community conflict that has been ongoing for over 250 years.

The tour is supported by free downloadable resources that can be used to enhance the tour's experience or used in a further academic study. This tour includes the sites of sadistic and mass murder but also includes how they were and are still justified by a still divided community today.

This exclusive tour, validated by academics and hundreds of satisfied customers alike, takes you to places not covered by other tours and we will pick you up and return you to your hotel or cruise ship in a luxury Air-Conditioned, Mercedes Taxi-Bus. This is your chance to see a side of Belfast that's hidden in plain sight.

A Recent Review of this tour

A very informative tour from Francis. I would HIGHLY recommend it. He does his tour in such a way to give you insight to both sides of the divide that has plagued Northern Ireland. His personal experiences growing up in Belfast, and showing you exactly where these experiences had taken place, absolutely made the tour. Thank you Francis for educating me on the political history of Northern Ireland, and answering all of my many many questions. Slainte!
