A great place to go shopping, having a bit of everything. Great clothing shops, cafe's and even a Disney store for the kids. Street performers and music along the street creates a great atmosphere. Close to St Stephen's Green if you want to grab your lunch and relax in the park.

My friend and I have just returned from a weekend to Dublin. Personally, I had highs and lows. This is indeed a very vibrant city, bustling with people, Dubliners, and those sight-seeing, with plenty of trips, and open top "hop on, hop off" buses. Shopping is great in Grafton Street, and many other parts too, and it made a nice... More

A must see! It's such a lively atmosphere.... buskers, musicians, artists and much more to see and visit. And of course, shopping and restaurants. Would visit again for our next trip to Dublin!

These sort of streets are some of my favorite parts of Europe. This is a walking street only full of shops and restaurants. There are a few of these in Europe but Grafton St was under construction, crowded, and while there are a few worth while stops I mostly just wanted to get away from the crowds.
