Belfast city, the Falls & Shankill


On this Belfast sightseeing tour I will drive you through the streets of Belfast visiting all the famous attractions of this quaint little city and also the not so famous ones.

From the Victorian buildings of Queens University, Custom House Square and Crumlin Road jail to the majestic City Hall, Belfast Castle and Parliament Buildings. We will visit all parts of the city from the Cathedral Quarter to the Titanic Quarter.

Belfast is now becoming famous as an open-air gallery, with hundreds off murals painted on walls throughout the city. Let me take you through these once war-torn streets where now the murals tell the history. We will pass through the Peace wall that still divides the working class communities of the catholic Falls and Protestant Shankill. This tour is fast becoming the most popular tour in Ireland. Highlights include The International Wall, Conway Mill, The Republican Museum, Bombay Memorial Garden, The Peace Wall, Shankill memorial garden and Crumlin Road Jail & Courthouse.
