Still one of Dublin's prime shopping districts, Grafton Street becomes even more lively at Christmas. The lights add atmosphere as shoppers bustle to and fro, relentlessly pursuing that "special gift" for a loved one. Of course, one of the sad downsides to this time of year is the tendency of some to abandon conventional "manners", shouldering their way through the... More

I love that place! It is very alive! Lots of shops around, and most of all lots of arts and bands playing music. This is the place i loved to go to in the morning with my coffee on my way to Stephen green park! I wish to get back there soon! During christmas time, the street is full of... More

The city was decorated for Christmas celebration, very nicely decorated shops, musicians everywhere (and some even sing all too well). I think the city is perfect for shopping enthusiasts Anyway it was very nice, animated, friendly people, perfect for a weekend

Excellent variety of shops in Grafton St and the surrounding area. Would recommend Brown Thomas and Arnotts plus "preloved" shops Ruby Ruby and Rare. Christmas décor and lights lovely in both the streets and the shops. Also went to Dundrum and again very enjoyable. Dublin is very stylish with lots of great brands available including some fab Irish designers I... More

This place is non stop busy. Tons of walks of life walking up and down and all over. Be prepared to do a couple dance moves to avoid smashing into someone or stepping on a child. None the less great shopping.

Don't see the big deal bout Grafton street. It's like any other Main Street with all the high street shops that comes with them. There is live acts and live music on the street which does add a nice touch to the street. If you want shopping this is for you.

Quite the party on a Friday night. Live musicians. Bar parties spilling out into street. I'm told the lively nightlife just came back around over the last 6 months as the country emerges from recession. During daytime, it was simply nice not to worry about cars and buses. Stores were nothing special.

This whole street is lined with Stores (high end, High Street, quirky and independent) and Malls to suit most Shoppers. Look out for some great street entertainers as You walk up and down Grafton Street - the human statues were my favourite on this trip! If You fancy a pit stop along the way, pop into Bewley's for a sweet... More
