The fashionable street with its high end outlets can be accessed mainly on foot. Good choice of outlets and shops. Great place for shopping and at the end you can rest your tired feet in the serene environment of St. Stephen's Green!

This is the area for high-end shopping in Dublin but it also has street entertainers and vendors of various sorts. It is also pedestrian-only and has an entrance to St. Stephens Green, a pleasant park to relax from the shopping.

Walking from St. Stephens Green down via Grafton Street is a nice experience. They have a series of street entertainers with different skills and a wide selection of cheap stores, chains and boutiques covering all differents styles and tastes :) If you need to go to the bathroom, visit Brown Thomas. They have bathrooms at the top floor and they... More

I am not into high end shopping but I like the beauty of the street and still strolled up and down the streets. I did pop into a couple of tourist shops. But you can visit anything from H & M to Chanel.

Grafton Street is an excellent place to people watch, shop and eat. There is an energetic vibe, full of young people, street performers and great shops.

Be sure to take time to visit Grafton Street if you are in Dublin! We didn't come to this city to spend much time shopping, but the area is definitely worth a morning or afternoon of your time. I picked up a number of gifts at Cath Kidston, a London company, and popped in and out of a number of... More

We walked through here, and I love pedestrian zones! The music on the street was pretty great, and there were a bunch other entertainers out as well (human statues, bubbles, magicians, etc.) I wouldn't have shopped or eaten anywhere along this main street as it's pretty touristy, but just one block east or west was quite a bit quieter.

Wife and I both enjoyed walking around Grafton Street. Fun area to people watch and see street entertainers performing. At any given time you may see 5-7 different types of performances. Loved hanging out here a couple hours. At the end of the street is a great park where you can pick up a carriage ride

Great place to stroll, shop, drink coffee and watch local buskers. Keeping walking and you will find St. Stephen's Green for a peaceful escape. Wonderful atmosphere!
