lovely area of Dublin, shame they have moved Molly Malone due to the road works! Some lovely shops, and the atmosphere is brilliant with buskers, street entertainers etc. Well worth a visit even if you don't do shopping! At the top of the street, is the beautiful Green Smith centre and gardens too.

I love Grafton Street from the wide range of shops to the amazing street performers to how clean it is! Also, there is the best flower stand down a small street off Grafton Street that sells the best flowers.

I love Grafton Street. It has a great atmosphere. Its busy but not crowded so you can stroll along easliy without being pushed around. It always feels bright and fresh.

Great street to shop in we were very lucky as the sales were on and we got real bargains, the security guard in Monsoon was really nice and a credit to the store. Of course we had to stop for liquid refreshment in Davy Byrnes bar which is always a good place to recover after a shopping trip.

Whether you are looking for a special gift or a souvenior from your trip to Dublin, Grafton St. is the place to shop.The street is bright (even at night) and festive, with musicians often playing their instruments. I had heard that all the shops were very expensive; I was pleasantly surprised to find that, although some shops are overpriced, there... More

It's best to experience Grafton Street without a guide book & just wander along the main strip & all the many side streets. I found so many great little places by just wandering around. I loved hearing street musicians playing Eddie Vedder & Neil Young. They don't play them over in NYC on the streets! Heartwarming.
