The shopping is fine but what makes Grafton Street special is the beautiful architecture, the street performers and the small street vendors. It is a full Irish experience. Don't miss the chance to check out the smaller side streets; there are great cafes everywhere.

Grafton street is worth a look as its the main shopping street in south Dublin. Its a work in progress as many of the units are being upgraded. Its very busy during weekends as well as at Christmas.

This is a long pedestrian shopping street. There aren't as many shops as you find on the main shopping street of other larger European cities, but it is worth a look if you want to do some shopping. The nice thing I found was the number of street musicians, there seemed to be some every few dozen meters or so.

Every city should have at least one are like this. A place where you can walk around surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants and not have to worry about traffic. It's full of life and very busy.

Even in the rain and the cold Grafton Street is a pleasure to enjoy. So many unique cafes, pubs and shops.

This is a good area to just take a while and browse around ... we enjoyed the variety of shops and that they were not all main chains especially if you get off into the surrounding street.
