Lots of construction, beggars and tour reps hassling you about their bus tours. There isn't a great deal of selection of places to eat out but there are some nice clothes shops like penny's, new look etc

There's a couple of interesting things on the street like the spire and the post office however like most places in Dublin you're going to meet beggars. There is also construction and broken pavement everywhere. A lot of tours start here too.

I wish they would put the old bauble Christmas Tree back up though instead of the crappy one that they put up now at Christmas.

O'Connell Street is very popular with tourists because it is full of vitality and much to do. There's an abundance of shopping, restaurants and pubs, as well as great sightseeing. It it just north of the river on the more working class side of Dublin. It's easy to reach by crossing one of the many bridges (on foot). On this... More

Take a stroll down O'Connell Street see the Spire,the now closed down Clerys Store go into the G.P.O. and look at the architecture,just a word of warning do it in daylight because when it gets dark this is not the place to be.I am from Dublin and i would NOT walk down this street after dark.

Laid out as a beautiful boulevard, O'Connell Street is of great historical significance to Ireland. Unfortunately it's now full of fast food joints and amusement/gambling arcades. It's just a depressing place where the worst of behaviour is on display. You'll feel safe if your a trained Navy Seal - otherwise steer clear!

This huge shopping street also includes two shopping centra. All the big brands have shops over here. Lovely to spend an afternoon shopping. The shops are opened untill 19:00 on Saturdays and untill 18:00 on Sundays.

It is the nicest shopping street in Dublin, crowded but clean. A fun way to look at others and their behaviors.

As our wonderful hotel, the Castle Hotel, was just at the top of O'Connell Street, we walked its length several times during our week in Dublin. Mac's, Burger King, all kinds of places to eat. Need to change money, no problem. All kinds of shops and a lot of bustle. lol And don't miss the Spire, as if you could.... More
