With a history that has the breadth and depth that Belfast has, alongside the ongoing struggle that has spanned centuries, it is not surprising that the political history of Ireland is still very much at the forefront of people’s minds.
Civil war, government uprisings and the question of Irish independence are all part and parcel of Ireland’s political history, and while it is not always perfect, it adds to the diversity that is present in the city today.
Between the political differences, a World War, the Civil War and the Great Potato Famine, millions of people died, and many more emigrated during the toughest time in Irish history.
While there is a lot to take in, Ireland’s troubled past can never take away from the stunning and beautiful sights that make up the vibrant city of Belfast. Despite the previous troubles, Ireland has taken many steps over the years to curb the negatives and focus on peace for all.
Our bespoke tour of Belfast covers all of Ireland’s political history, and the peace process that followed, including a chance to see the mesmerising Peace Wall and Political Murals across the city, depicting the past that got Ireland here today; a truly humbling experience for all involved.
