A famous street, portrayed in literary works. Today, a good place for shopping, both for luxury items and souvenirs, as well as beautiful flowers. Also, a street leading to Stephen's Green-a nice park. Grafton Street is usually full of street artists and buskers, some of them really good!

Shops, tourists, no cars or buses. Maybe good for those Who loves shopping. I do not, but it is near Trinity College, so easy to make a nice day with two different activities.

It's great to have a pedestrian-only street in downtown Dublin; no worries about cars while meandering along this street! Pubs and shops are plentiful along Grafton Street, as are people. It, along with all of downtown Dublin, was swarming with tourists when I was there in July. Great for people-watching.

This is the "High Street" of Dublin, and it's where you can go shopping in fancy shops and department stores. It's interesting to walk through, and you'll see lots of tourists, street performers and locals there. Try exploring some of the streets that fan out from Grafton Street. There are some really good restaurants in that area.

Friendly shopping street near Temple bar district. Not the most expensive brands, except for the shopping mall.

This is a tourist shopping street but having said that there is nothing special here but buskers and beggars the full length of the street it is full of gaudy small shops not worth going out of you way to visit

Grafton Street is that place you saw the buskers playing guitar in "Once," and that hasn't changed - except there might be more of them. Think of it as an outdoor pedestrian mall where you sometimes can't move due to a crowd growing around some performer who's juggling, eating fire or doing something else that will draw tourists and pickpockets...

Although the shops on this street are expensive, it was worth walking around because of all the people, which creates a special atmosphere. It is like visiting the Rambla in Barcelona, both pedestrian streets. Located in the center of town, it is easily accessible. You should walk there once in your life!

I think the best point of this street, famous for the shops, are the buskers performing there: you can find them every few metres and they're pretty good (at playing music, at painting, at ... performing in general).
