This very pleasant pedestrian-only long street has many nice shops and restaurants. The street perfomers are generally quite good and as of August 2016 non-resident (even foreigners) can get a street performer permit for two weeks for only 10 euros.

Great shopping district. Lots to choose from. Found lots of great stuff! Disney store, TK Maxx, and Oxfam were highlights for me.

Great shopping street - you could be anywhere in the world though - Nothing unique or special (only Irish flavour was the Irish souvenir shops)

Some of the real treasures lie in the many alleys that run off of Grafton Street. In the morning the foot traffic isn't to bad but by mid afternoon it's a mad house.

Good for shopping and strolling. If you're like us and avoid the tourist mobs, once is enough. The small side streets are loaded with cool pubs and eateries.

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.
