Grafton Street is alive with pedestrians and buzzes with cafes, shops and street performers. It is close to St. Stephen's Green at one end and ends near Trinity College at the other. Great for people-watching, getting a bite, pubbing and shopping for souvenirs.

Once the premier shopping street in Dublin, Grafton street is unfortunately only a shadow of its former self. The street has been overrun by phone, sportswear and souvenir shops together with fast food outlets. The once iconic Bewley's Cafe is currently closed for renovation and the sole remainders of class on the street are Brown Thomas department store and Weir's... More

From what we experienced Grafton street is the hub of Dublin when it comes to people watching and shopping. There are shops, pubs, and restaurants adorning every street and alleyway. It makes for great people watching while strolling, eating, or drinking. We had a great lunch there and of course some Gino's gelato. There are also plenty street performers (quite... More

Grafton Street is like a large outdoor mall. Lots of shops and street characters. As in other large cites, there are people dressed as cartoon characters enticing you to take a picture with them for a price.

Looking up Grafton Street is not unlike looking up any city street loaded with shops, but it's "Grafton Street", so it's worth a quick stop.... Busy, bustling, energetic.... Go, so you can say you did.

Loved the vast range of shops from cheap, boutique & designer. There truly is something for everyone. If you go down the many side streets you can find 'local' pubs serving traditional Irish food plus Guinness! Had a really good spend and enjoyed the local experience

Every time I come to Dublin I look forward to walking around Grafton Street. At Christmas there is a buzz and amazing energy here. In the summer there are people walking around enjoying the weather, flowers and there's always great shopping. It's a must for any visitor.

Can't beat Brown Thomas for designer clothing. Bewleys Coffee House was wonderful before Starbucks took it over, but the Harry Clarke windows are still therevthankfully. But don't miss the Kilkenny Shop on Nassau Street at the bottom of Graton St & Avoca on Suffolk Strret, again at the bottom, the Trinity end.
