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!

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

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...
