Interesting and popular spot for shopping

We strolled down Grafton Street to shop. There are a number of nice stores there, and it is especially nice as it is a pedestrian only area.

if you are in Dublin also for shopping, don't miss this street. and, while you're at it, make sure you occasionally take a look above the shops, as to see the true beauty of the buildings

Grafton Street including some of the side streets are great shopping streets. You can shop great Aran Irish sweaters, wool scarfs, Irish chocolates, coffee, several good department stores, Waterford crystal, etc. You can find everything here with most of these shops will ship free to U.S. No bulky sweaters in my suit case. They arrived U.S. before I did.

Grafton Street has a lot going on besides the shops which are interesting. There were many street performers to entertain you.

Grafton street is in the middle of some great shopping in Dublin. For a few blocks the traffic is blocked off so it's just strolling and shopping. There are musicians almost every block performing, most of them very good musicians so on a nice night it's a very pleasant stroll down Grafton. Brown Thomas, the large department store is here,...

By staying near the centre of the city, we went by or through Grafton Street, sometimes several times in a day. It runs from St. Stephen's Green to College Green, and we almost always stopped to listen to some of the street singers, some of whom were very good, or the street musicians, who sounded professional to my ears.

Dublin summer of 2016 could be called the big Dublin Dig. Here in the centre of town, where tourists seem to dominate, you cannot avoid the main pedestrian artery that is Grafton Street. It is surrounded by roads under construction (new street car tracks being laid). You will find talented buskers galore, throngs of people and all the chain stores... More
