The quality of murals is as good as on the Shankhill. George best's place of birth isn't far away. Interesting memorials to the shipyard workers who lived in this locality very handy for the nearby yards.

The mural is a must see. Home to a big brick works and a famous tobacco factory. Large holiday inn hotel next to city centre and a top line shoe shop. Alex hurricane Higgins from here

Sandy Row is a road practically in Belfast- a street. It is a loyalist area with murals and is illustrative of the divisive culture in Northern Ireland - however it is an excellent spot to get genuine local culture and the personality of Belfast people. Visit the murals, there are not as many stores as there have been in the... More

This is my second visit... More

A mini, very mini Shankill Road. A nice mural of the man himself. Bit run down. Best seen from the top of one of the city tour buses. Typical of what was once a loyalist working class area . Not really a lot to see but helps understand the class divide which did exist.
