So there I was , checked out of my hotel and ready to shop til I dropped at 9. Only no shops, bar Centra, were open. The shopping centre was closed. Seriously, Dunnes was closed.

You can do this on foot no problem actually it is better this way but you can get your bearings on the tourist bus first should you wish. Lots of shops and stalls worth a visit

Grafton St gave us our only disapointment of our visit as Bewleys was shut and looked like it wasn't opening any time soon! Other than that, a really good place to spnd some time.

Pretty cool street to walk down. Some nice shops and department stores. I didn't write the name of the department store we walked into, but it had a really cool grocery store downstairs and it was something we needed on our visit. It also had some nicer luxury stores that had some good window shopping. The street entertainment was fun... More

We stayed very near Grafton Street so it was easy for us to pop out and walk around. Lots of energy in the area! The entire family enjoyed exploring the various pubs, shops, etc. We're already planning to go back.

There are numerous high street shops on Grafton St along with some unknown names. Good atmosphere with flower market and buskers

A lovely shopping area with all the usual suspects, Clothes shops etc. A nice place to pick up some Irish memorabilia on your trip, depending on the exchange rate a bargain can be had.

Not the greatest stores. It's ok to walk if you pass the area anyway. but one does not got to Dublin for shopping in the first place. Rather check the streets west of Grafton. More upmarket and creative shops there.

An excellent starting pad for shopping and alleys that lead off to parts of the city you might miss.Flower sellers and buskers add to the atmosphere.Don't forget to visit the Phil Lynott statue,Dublin Boy.
