We walked along Grafton street a few times en route to other places but didn't stop to do any shopping. It had a nice atmosphere and it was nice to have a pedestrian friendly street to walk along. It is definitely the place to go if you like to shop.

A more upscale pedestrian mall than Henry Street with lots more going on. On the sunny Saturday mid-day we were there, it was thronged with tourists and locals alike. Check out the side streets too as there are less expensive options for wares and food there. Not enough places to sit and people watch unfortunately but still a nice place... More

Walking around Grafton street was a great experience. There's so much to see and so many familiar shops for Americans. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes!!!!

Such a great street that really encapsulates the Dublin atmosphere with some of the best buskers i've ever seen! A definite place to go when you're in Dublin!

Grafton Street is one of my favorite 'people-watching places' on earth. Also: Buy flowers for yourself; leave them with a "Thank you!" note for The Westbury's brilliant Housekeeping Staff. Peruse jewelry from the street vendors; unlike any of the retail shops, they'll bargain – and, likely, add great color to your Dublin stories! Shop, if you like Michigan Avenue-type stories... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time in Dublin. The city is beautiful and fun, the locals are super friendly, and the city just has a great vibe to it. That being said, I was rather confused as to why everyone made such a big deal about Grafton Street. Lined with run of the mill stores, I guess it's... More

I went on a Saturday and it was a vibrant bustling street with lots of street performances going on. Not too sure what it's like on a weekday though. Just a side note, shops in Dublin close early on weekends. Most close before 7pm.

This is a expensive street to shop on, I picked up a few things there...basic touristy things. I did get into the Pandora which was down the street. I was worth it to me for a piece to add to my collection. If you have the money you could go crazy.

We stayed on Grafton Street right next to Hogan's Pub. The whole of Dublin is a Lively Place. There are great Pubs, Shops and Restaurants (both dine in and take out) on Grafton Street.
