Well, Dublin is a small city, but I just love this place.. O'Connel Street is the main avenue there. Although is the main one, I think is small and with nothing special to see. They have just the spire... In front of the spire, you can find the Henry and Talbott Street where you can buy few things like clothes... More

A major urban shopping area across the Liffey River from Temple Bar and Trinity College. Bus tours/airport bus starting point. Tram access also. Convenient and within walking distance but away from Temple Bar hubbub.

If you come to Dublin, You are going to end up here during your stay, it has hotels, shops, pubs, about half of Dublins buses stop here on their meanderings through Dublin. You will come across every walk of life down this street too, so remember and be careful of those naughty pickpockets! Generally Dubliners are a really friendly bunch,... More

Dublins Main Street is home to loads of shops, street artists and a really helpful tourist information centre. The bus from the airport drops you right next to the tourist information place. Lots to eat, see and do. The bus stops are easily locatable, and the tram stops on the next street.

Definitely a must experience street in Dublin. O'Connell street was the site for many historical events. It is definitely worth taking a stroll down to shop, eat, see the historical sites or enjoy the monuments!

O'Connell Street was a worth a visit but not as spectacular I had expected. It's one of the famous streets of Dublin and it is where many of the transport links are, there are several good shops on O'Connell and a few restaurants and bars. The more popular of places are around and off Temple Bar. O'Connell Street is somewhere... More

I love this street but it has changed a lot. It was once even greater and better. It was lined with trees, good restaurants, cinemas and dancing places. It is still a nice street and is Dublin's mail street. It is with great sadness that I see that the city planners have not deemed it of the highest priority to... More
