It has recently become popular to visit areas of Belfast where there are murals painted on the gable ends of rows of houses. Some of these areas can be fairly rough areas and should really be avoided, especially in July or when there is civil unrest. The local people feel they live in a zoo when visitors come to gawk at them and photograph their houses. Please be respectful and, if you really feel you have to see these murals, be as unintrusive as possible.
The wall murals of Belfast are not to be missed! I would have liked to have spent more time viewing them then I did! Next time!!! You can get a cab tour, bus tour, or just walk the streets to view them! The youth hostel can give you guidance!
