I wanted to walk through Grafton Street on our trip to Dublin because I specifically wanted to visit the Pandora store to get a charm from Ireland. It was a nice shopping street if that's what you're looking for, which some fun street performers scattered around. I wouldn't spend too much time there but it was worth a walk through... More

Lots of tourist shops and bars. I don't think many Dubliners actually hang out here, but it's still worth a stroll as there are decent bars/shops off of the side streets.

Loved walking along this street during the day to shop and eat and shop. However as with any big city at nighttime all the homeless take up residence along the whole road. With my 9 year old daughter, it was a bit intimidating to say the least.

Grafton Street has nice chain stores all located in one area. There are also some cheap Irish merchandise stores. The mall at the end of the street is a really neat building but the stores aren't worth your time.

Grafton Street is a pedestrian mall stretching over several blocks. There is a broad range of shops, from exclusive to inexpensive. But it is more than just a shopping district. The strip is full of buskers providing entertainment -- music, jugglers, and many other acts. There is a good selection of restaurants too. A great place for people-watching. Very bustling... More

A great place to shop with many fantastic shops. The roads around Grafton also have many one off shops where you can find just about anything. Good for exploring.

Grafton Street is awesome. Tons of shops, people and street entertainment. My family and I really enjoyed walking up and down the street shopping and people watching. Very fun and free if you just want to take in Dublin.
