Your Belfast Mural Tour starts in the Shankill Road neighborhood, a predominantly Protestant and British area. Your knowledgeable Black Taxi driver will guide you through the area's rich history, starting with King William III's victory over King James II at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. You'll learn about the recent troubles, which lasted from 1969 until the signing of the peace agreement in 1998. During a brief walking tour, your driver will point out the Loyalist murals and explain their significance. You'll have the chance to capture pictures of these vibrant and thought-provoking pieces of public art.
The peace walls in Belfast were created to separate the Catholic (Nationalist) and Protestant (Unionist) communities, after violence erupted in 1969. Initially meant to be temporary, the effectiveness of the first "peace lines" led to their extension and reinforcement, resulting in permanent structures that still stand today. Despite their original purpose, the walls now feature art and messages of hope from visitors.
On the black taxi tour, you will make a stop at the Clonard Martyrs Memorial Garden in Bombay Street. This area is regarded by some as the birthplace of the modern troubles in Belfast, as Catholic residents were forced to flee their homes. It is also the place where the Provisional IRA was formed. Your guide will provide a comprehensive explanation of each section of the garden and its significance. The tour will then proceed to the Sinn Fein press office, home to one of the most famous murals on Falls Road, depicting Bobby Sands.
