O que você fará

Starting at Belfast city hall (we meet at the front gates of City Hall in Donegall Square North) and finishing by the Beacon of Hope beside the river Lagan, the tour visits 7 locations in the city centre where major incidents occurred between 1971 and 1976.

We start with a short introduction to Irish / British history and why the Troubles start in the late 1960’s. Over the course of 1.5 miles and 2 hours and 15 minutes we then tell the stories of these incidents; what happened and why, who was involved, and the effect these attacks had on the city and its people, affecting nearly every part of our daily lives.

We also demonstrate the impact of the peace process; you will witness the social and cultural regeneration of the city as we walk through the Cathedral Quarter and waterfront areas of the city where you will also see some of the street art that demonstrates our newfound vibrant culture.

Throughout the tour we use visual aids with images of the Troubles and the places we visit from the 1960’s, 70’s & 80’s to demonstrate the realities of life then compared to now.

The tour is factual and historically accurate to ensure it is unbiased and non-partisan, but we also weave our own stories into the tour to bring our history to life for you.

There is also time built into the tour to ensure that questions are encouraged from guests and that answers are meaningful

We are Mark Wylie, Paul ‘Donzo’ Donnelly and James Ellson, conflict historians with qualifications in Irish History, Politics and Anthropology. We were all born in Belfast in the 1960's, (in the year the Troubles began!).

We have worked extensively in teaching, mediation work with interface communities and ex-combatants, and Victims & Survivors groups, and of course as tour guides.

We began giving tours to visitors in 2013. We are immensely proud of our city and this is reflected in what we do. Our ‘The History of the Troubles’ tour was Highly Commended at the Northern Ireland Tourism Awards in 2019 and is the only ‘peace and reconciliation’ or ‘political history’ tour to receive a 5 star rating by Tourism Northern Ireland. Paul was named 'Top UK Tour Guide' at the Wanderlust World Guide Awards in 2019.

An experience that brings the history of Northern Ireland tastefully for you to comprehend. The experience is told at a sensitive level for all sides involved. You will understand the complexity of what happened and the current challenges that are ahead. Having somebody as Mark involved not only in the tour but in the real world issues gives me confidence that Northern Ireland's best days are ahead. Well done.

James delivered our tour and was charming, hugely knowledgeable and able to convey the experience of both himself and everyone in NI at the time. We did the tour as 60-something wrinklies with our 30-something daughter. She learned a lot about stuff from before she was born and we learned details that we never knew. The Troubles are still baffling but the look and feel of the 1970s-90s was evoked very well and the arrival of the peace process is to be cherished and not put at risk by our current lunatic leaders.

Amazing tour! Mark is so knowledgable and is so open to any question wanting answered. He explains the troubles in such a way that anyone without any prior knowledge can be actively engaged in the tour. I would highly recommend anyone that wants to learn about this point in history to book themselves onto this tour whilst in Belfast!
