    Dublin's main shopping street
    Came here for the atmosphere rather than the shopping. The best time to come is during the day, when the shops are open, although it always seems to be busy. Buskers - some of them quite good - add to the festive atmosphere. Pedestrians only, so you don't have to worry about cars (but you do have to watch out for the occasional cyclist). Right near Trinity College.

    Dublins main shopping street- great!
    The main shopping area of Dublin. Lovely street with great shops!! It leads onto St Stephens Green which is lovely. Brown Thomas is lovely, definitely worth looking in!

    Place to go if you love to shop
    A wide selection of shops to suit all tastes from high street and designer outlets to small boutiques and souvenir shops. Expensive but worth visiting to see the street performers. Plenty of places to eat and drink too

    Dining, Shopping, and Drinking in Dublin!
    Grafton Street, Dublin is a popular shopping area in the city center. It runs from St. Stevens Green on the south to the Trinity College Campus. The street is lined with boutique & name-brand shopping, the gamut of dining options, Irish Pubs, and live street entertainment. Grafton Street is a crowded, busy tourist attraction, and it's great if you enjoy that atmosphere!

If you enjoy shopping or street entertainers, Grafton Street will be a place you need to hit. There are a lot of high end stores on the street, and a few souvenir places as well. LOTS of people. But it's an easy walk and something you should see if you're in Dublin.

Probably the best street in Dublin to walk around for shopping and getting something to eat.

Good street to base yourself around exploring Dublin.

Street was close to my hotel and enjoyed walking up and down and exploring all the different precincts.

A wonderful shopping district with an amazing selection of shops and an incredible department store. The street itself is vibrant fun with all of the talented (some downright awesome) street singers.
