Belfast Peace Walls

It’s all aboard for the short trip to the Belfast Peace Walls

The peace walls separate Catholic and Protestant Neighbours, to alleviate much of the tensions witnessed over the years. See some of the city's glorious murals and artistic splendors.

These walls are just as prominent today as they were 100 years ago, when they were first built.

Political Tour by Black Cab/Taxi

For a country that’s only 100 years old, Northern Ireland’s politics is unique.

Many visitors to Northern Ireland have grown up watching our country on the news for the wrong reasons.

The list is endless: a 30-year conflict, bombs going off, civil rights protests, riots, contentious parades, paramilitary murals, senseless murders.

But what you mightn’t know is that modern-day Northern Ireland is quite different.

We don’t hide from our past, but we embrace it.
