There are many things worth seeing in this street including the Millennium Spire ( The Stilleto in the Ghetto) and the Post Office( very important in Irish history) as well as lots of shops.

Went there for the beer. Friendly staff but only a guitarplaying man, not real Irish music in our ears.

What a fantastic stop to OCONNELL ST. Most of my souvenir purchases were made here. The plea was buzzing about with Street performers, Ice cream shops and pubs!

O' Connell Street is probably the most famous street in all of Ireland. It is the widest street in Europe, and full of history. Walk through the pillars that are still riddled with bullet holes from the 1916 Irish Revolution. Take a walk past the spire (The Stiletto in the Ghetto is what the locals call it). Stop in at...

The O'connell Street in dublin is a place bustling with all kinds of activities. It hosts most of the shopping malls in the city centre and has on display different kinds of goods for visitors. Here you will also find stores like spar, tesco in the Jervis shopping arena. The streets come alive with young gangs of 'road side musicians'... More

We were accommodated a short walk north of O'Connell St. An easy stroll down and back up the other side took couple of hours; there was sooo much to see/shops to visit, both on O'Connell and joining side streets. Excellent hub for public transport and booking tours......the only negative was the amount of rubbish lying around on the pavements -... More

I visit Dublin a few times a year. It isn't my favourite city but it has potential to be charming. What is killing it's potential for me is the amount of Junkies that are very visable North of the river. Primarily O Connell St and Abbey St. I took my 10 year old daughter to Dublin for Culture Night last... More
