Usual shops and some pubs around, it's ok for a walk and see some locals after works heading to the waterholes in suits or uniform. Nice walk with cute buildings around. If you are going for the view go around 6.

Street with a little bit of everything! Aside from shopping, it's also fun just to take a stroll or do some people watching. It is a short street, but there's plenty to do in terms of shopping (clothes, books, Irish souvenirs, shoes, a Disney store). And there are a few pubs and fast food places to grab a quick bite....

Busy, busy.. unlike any other city and gives NYC a run for the $ with little pollution, both noise and environmentally. A clean stretch of a 1/2 mile radius of very clean streets, by all visual accounts. Within just a few block there is much to encounter running the gamut from theatre district, to upscale boutique shopping, to indelible higher... More

While Temple Bar gets all the attention for the tourist trade, Grafton street has everything that Temple bar has plus much more. The trade seems to be a little bit older and less inclined to out and out drunken-ness like Temple Bar. Many good pubs, restaurants and upscale shops

In Dublin for. Concert at the RDS. I had been advised to take in Grafton Street, the 'top tourist stop' Sorry, it's just another high street with all the usual chains plus a more than adequate sprinkling of shops selling tourist tat. There are a few good pubs nearby, but almost all seem to be playing the same Irish music.... More
