A Street Art Guide to Belfast

After our recent visit to Belfast where we were treated to an abundance of high quality Street Art we thought we would create a Street Art guide to some of the best locations around Belfast for some painted creativity. The majority of the art shared below has been organised by Seedhead Arts who have done a fantastic job bringing art to Belfast sourcing a number of spaces and running the annual Hit The North Street Art Festival held in conjunction with Culture Night in Belfast.

This is by no means a definitive guide to all the locations to see Street Art and Graffiti around Belfast, but will certainly keep you busy for the day. The fact is there is Street Art all over the place in Belfast from large-scale murals to miniature stencil works, you really do just have to keep your eyes peeled and explore, however we hope this will serve as a useful guide of some of the key spots to hit up for anyone visiting or unacquainted with the area. We would also like to offer a big thank you to our friend Tanya for helping us find so many of the 100 or so fantastic artworks shared below.

3: Holywood – This area is a little out of the way in relation to all the other Street Art shared in this guide. It will take you 10 minutes by train from the Titanic Quarter to Holywood, but the trip is well worth it to see the stunning large-scale mural from artist Irony.

4: The Cupar Way Peace Wall. There are 60 or so Peace Walls in Belfast with walls up to six metres high separating communities, with gates that are locked at night. These walls have become a canvas for each side to show its political position and allegiance. The Cupar Way Peace Wall is a most impressive Graffiti Hall of Fame and well worth checking out for the high rate Graffiti.
