Troubles Tourism

Troubles Tourism
A trip to Belfast and N. Ireland isn't without its curiosity value. We're talking 'The Troubles' - that quaintly named period of our history from the late '60s to the 1998 Good Friday Agreement when political conflict was at its height.

Those dark days have certainly dimmed, and todays tourists see a new Belfast and N. Ireland emerge from that contentious past. While the vast majority embraces peace and looks to a better future, what remains of those days for our history hungry visitor?
