This is one of the most famous streets in Dublin. That also means that hoards of tourists are visiting the street at the same time. Especially during high season it is over-crowded and not the most romantic experience. On the other hand there is a lot of things going on here, there are street buskers and performance and always something... More

This is one of my favourite streets in my life. Clean, beautiful , and safe ! I can almost need whatever I want here ! So many shops, restaurants, and pubs. It is crowed all the time , I guess. Brown Tomas store is the one you must pop in. And Stephen Green Shopping centre is in the end of... More

Shops, restaurants, pubs and more shops. Dublin's Grafton Street is a small complex of streets that comprise a main shopping and tourist area in Dublin. Nothing special, nothing bad, just shops. In the evenings, there are usually a few street musicians in the area that usually add a nice ambiance to the evening's stroll.

It's clean. Pedestrians only. Wide. Ranges from nice shops to inexpensive souvenirs. Street performers yet not overbearing. Felt safe, day & night. Busy, day & night. Kid-friendly. If looking for a souvenir, it will be here or it doesn't exist. Many restaurants on side streets off Grafton. All just far enough away from Temple Bar.

Grafton Street is a very fun place to spend a day. The whole street (and all the streets that cross it) have lots of shopping and some really great restaurants and pubs. My favorite part of the street, however, are all the street performers. There are bands that set up, solo artists, dancers, fire jugglers, etc. You really never know... More

Just came across this guy Mick on his small stall ona corner on Grafor Street - we wanted to mention him as he was so pleasant and keen to please and we got some great deals in small silver items. Grafton Street is otherwise a big shopping street with many souvenires

Grafton Street far too busy and there's far too many buskers! There's one in particular who claims to make a dog out of sand, but you never see him start from the beginning. The dog's always made. The dog is almost certainly solid and he brings it out fully formed everyday!

Street performers and world-class people watching, oh....... and there's some shopping there too. We saw every freak in town on Grafton Street and this spot attracts every traveler in town. It's worth a quick bit of time, but don't spend all day here - there are plenty of other things to do in Dublin.
