Great place for the quirky shops and independent cafes. Lots to see and explore so make sure you have plenty of time (and money). As one of the main areas it did get very busy and noisy.

Nothing special about the shops, but Grafton Street is a good for a walk and a coffee at Bewley's. Tuck down some of the side streets to find a few yummy-looking pubs and eateries. There are so street performers that kids will like a lot, but nothing too unique.

Despite the road being blocked with trucks and road works, the atmosphere of this street is still great! I loved the street performers, particularly 4 men and a Dalmatian dog! I was shoe shopping so I was in heaven on this street!

Shopping street, lots of litter. Generic stores and tourist tat. Tourists walking into each other. Buskers and beggars. Road works. A shame.

If you enjoy trying to shop whilst being hounded by beggars and the homeless then this is the area for you! The stores themselves are very good, you have plenty of choice including a shopping centre, the shopping centre charges you 20c to use the toilet which is on the 4th floor by the way. There are also lots of... More

I was looking for something as simple as a lightweight spring scarf , but I didn't find much to choose from...there are a lot of typical souvenir shops so go for the ambience of strolling the cobbles but plan to shop very little.

Lots of shopping...some American shops. I did not spend a lot of time there but walking through Grafton at night you will find live street entertainers. The buildings are amazing.
