This is a great spot for those who love crowds, bad street music, fast food and chain stores. If your intent in visiting Dublin is to dine in MacDonalds, Burger King or Subway, shop in Tommy Hilfiger, the Disney Store or American Apparel (or in a variety of over-priced luxury shops) or otherwise do pretty much exactly what you could...

Nothing spectacular here. Lots of shops and stores. Music, small kiosks selling flowers and jewelry. Marks and Spencer is on this street, however, and is a good place to get some wine, cheese and fruit to take to the park for a picnic! Walked the length early one morning...no people. Walked later in the day and it was quite crowded.

This is a great street. It was once filled with cars and traffic moved very slowly but now of course it is just pedestrian. You can start from the top near Stephens's Green. Start by having a nice Butler's coffee which is on the start of the street. Walk a few steps further and there is a really famous Captain... More

A great pedestrian mall. Lots of shops and cafés. There are also several cell phone stores if you are looking to replace your SIM card while you are visiting the country.

Some high end shops but a lot of McDonald's, Burger King and low end stores as well. I didn't feel real safe there at night but worth a stroll in the day..;.it is not very long at all.

I think it is the same for every city. Some shops, shame outline, nothing to reflect the city's character.
