Culturally rich west Belfast is home to traditional Irish culture, language, sport and music.

Fáilte Feirste Thiar means Welcome to west Belfast. West Belfast is known as a hotbed of political invention and a platform for social progress. The legacy of the recent conflict is a confident community that attracts interest from actors, writers, politicians and an ever increasing number of tourists from every continent.

Take a taxi tour in one of the famous black taxis or join a walking tour organised by an ex-prisoner. There are many things to see in west Belfast. From the huge range of political murals to the traditional music sessions, from Milltown and city cemeteries to Clonard Monastery.

If you fancy some fresh air, why not take a walk up the Divis and Black Mountain or visit the Colin Glen Forest Park? If you are looking for a rest afterwards and a bite to eat, you will be spoilt for choice in west Belfast. Whether it's a coffee in Conway Mill or a lunch in the Cultúrlann, great service is guaranteed.
