Coiste Irish Political Tours

 (+44) (0)28 9020 0770     more than a year ago
Former activists and political ex-prisoners from within the Republican community host this 3-hour Falls Road Mural Walking Tour, providing visitors with an in-depth insight into the most recent phase of the Anglo/Irish conflict. At the end of the tour, visitors are offered a free glass of Guinness in a local pub. Included in the cost is also a discount to the James Connolly Exhibition in Áras Uí Chonghaile.

Coiste Irish Political Tours are happy to organise tailor-made group tours of political, historical, cultural and educational significance. And they can also arrange Q&As and discussions with former political prisoners, republicans and loyalists, and former members of the British armed forces and Royal Ulster Constabulary (former Police Service in the North of Ireland). These discussions allow visitors to ask questions of people they might not have easy access to and provide in-depth interaction about our recent history. Tailor-made tours and educational field trips suited to your needs in Belfast, Derry & South Armagh are also available for larger groups. 

The tours began in 2000 as a social economy project providing employment opportunities for the growing political ex-prisoner community. Over the years, thousands of people of all ages, including individuals and groups from around the world, have taken these unique tours. Tours of the nearby Shankill area with ex-prisoners from a unionist background can also be organised... never underestimate the fact that this particular political exchange would have been unheard of until relatively recently. If sufficient notice is given, Falls Road Mural Tours can also be arranged in Irish, Basque, Spanish, Italian and French.

Tickets can be purchased through the Coiste website, TripAdvisor, Irish Tour Tickets and the Visit Belfast Welcome Centre (opp. City Hall).
