    Crumlin Road jail in Belfast is a very interesting place. Standing on the actual gallows where men were executed is not for the faint-hearted. Thank goodness those days are over!

    The restaurant certainly isn't serving the old prison menu. We met the lady chef and the food was prepared especially for us - we were the only customers!

    It was a great experience and I heartily recommend a visit.

    No point in going to Belfast if you don't do this. It's an absolute must. Ideally, you'll need 3 hours. Can do in 2 if you really rush, but I'd recommend at least 3 - 4 if you want to read a lot of the boards. To be honest, if you read them all, it'd probably take you all day!

    The Peace Wall is a must visit if visiting Belfast. You can choose to visit as part of a tour, take a Black Taxi experience or you can hop on a bus to either Falls Road or Shankill and walk to and along the Peace Wall.

    The artwork is amazing yet slightly unsettling as you can really get a sense of the opposing views on both sides. It depicts such an important part of Belfast's recent history and personally I think it is well worth visiting.

    Many people have signed the Peace Wall and along the way you will spot a poignant Dalai Lama quote calling for peace.

    We didn't take a Black Taxi tour but I'd suggest taking this if you really want the historical insight.

    A lot of pictures, documents and information of the history of the troubles which was good after the Murals Tour. Also don't miss the Irish wolfhound!

    A great covered market with booths selling art, antiques, Belfast memorabilia, fish, cheese, meat, and food and drink to consume on the premises. We enjoyed wandering amongst the stalls and trying different things to eat.

    Really interesting and informative tour of this splendid building. Council Chambers and Banqueting Hall were really impressive as was our guide David who made the visit even more enjoyable. Make sure to take in the visitor exhibition which along with the tour was free

    Well worth a visit. I had been to HMS Caroline many years ago and visited again after the restoration - a first class job.

    Well worth the visit. I was on a bus tour and we stopped on the other side of the road. Murals from the Troubles but also current events

    Great addition to the Titanic experience. Once you get across the cobbled path the tour of the boat is very accessible. Highly recommend

    Sara gave us a fabulous review of the history of the Irish legislative and political conflicts from the 1800 to the present conundrums. Wonderful tour of the parliamentary building including the building, rebuilding and current political environment. I got to sit in the chair of the First Minister as they are currently “dissolved” and the tour was most informative. 45 minutes well spent on the political history of the “troubles” and more. Esp loved the description of how they covered the building with tar, manure and then grass to hide it from German bombers.

    We spent a great day out here - there is just loads to see and do. We went in the peak of summer but barely had to wait to cuddle any of the animals. The animals all seemed really well cared for (unlike some other open farms we've been to elsewhere). We will definitely be back. Only criticism would be that the only food available is fast food so not very healthy/diverse, and the main eatery is fairly open to the elements so doesn't provide much warmth on a chilli day.

    The Shankill Road is the Unionist area of Belfast. All the murals depict the political history from this point of view. This area is part of the Black Taxi tour but can also be visited by taking a bus/glider from the city centre. If visiting the Falls Road, then you need to visit Shankill Road and vice versa.

    I visited by taking the G1 Glider from the city centre and strolled around. I feel that by going this way you can stroll around and view the murals/artwork at your leisure. Obviously if visiting on a Black Taxi tour you will hear of the history of the murals and leave more informed. Personally I felt safer strolling around Falls Road than Shankill Road. There were areas that I felt a little on edge but maybe this was due to preparation for July 12th celebrations and the building of bonfires.

    The dividing wall and gate is still there separating the two communities. Once you cross over the gate you can clearly see a sharp and very quick change in the artwork. Worth a visit and really gives an insight into the troubles.
