City Centre Attractions & Political Tour


Welcome to Belfast. During this fascinating tour we will stroll through Belfast's old alleyways and entries discovering the tales of the people who gave the city its wonderful character and discover over 400 years of history with a local guide. We will see all the most popular sights from the Victorian City hall to the leaning Albert Clock and experience the unique atmosphere of the city's pubs, restaurants, cafes and streets.

Belfast is also 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.

Because i'm a native I know all the shortcuts through the city and all the best places to visit, which will ensure you get the most out of your time.
