Grafton Street is a really fun street filled with lots of shopping opportunities and places to visit. So much goes on here during the day and at night. If you enjoy shopping, this is one of the best streets to visit. It is right in the heart of Dublin near many tourist sites, restaurants and pubs. It's also a great... More

Nothing special about the shops along this pedestrian mall. I was hoping for some great Irish craft shops, but none that I saw. Just lots of US chains and touristy places. But it is worth a stroll just to watch all the performances along the way. Magicians, fire eaters, singers, dancers, acrobats. Very entertaining.

This is a lovely street. it's pedestrianized so you can amble up and down at your leisure. Stretching from Trinity College to St. Stephen's Green Grafton St. is full of lovely shops and every side street has a great selection of restaurants. A great place for street performers all year round

The street is alive with a variety of shops and restaurants. We liked R&C McCormacks celtic jewelry because their selection was a cut above of what everyone else was selling. And they're very nice! I bought my two traveling companions pieces in there to remember our trip and they loved them. Yes they are a little pricier (just by a... More

Grafton street is a great place to experience local groups entertaining the passes by. The group we liked the best was the Cdax the lead guitarist had a great voice.

Great street with all of the shops you can think of and more. This pedestrian area takes you from Trinity College up to St Stephens Green and is well worth exploring.

Probably my favourite street in Dublin. A pedestrianised area with plenty of shops including the famous Brown Thomas department store. It's very busy and popular with lots of tourists and is very near the Westbury Hotel (see separate review). There are many high-quality street performers all along the street and they seem to need a licence to be there (other... More
