The Main Street is your usual high street/city shopping street. However if you take the smaller roads off to the sides and onto the cobbled areas there are many smaller independent shops worth browsing.

Grafton Street is a beautiful part of Dublin to walk through. Clean, friendly and bustling with high-end shops and a variety of street performers. My wife and I were staying on the far side of the park and enjoyed walking up Grafton Street every morning...More

I live in Dublin and I never tire of the city centre. Grafton street is the heart for me. Early evening buskers ( musicians and artists) performing make it special. Friends families gather around to see the entertainment. The shops are beautiful not to mention...More

I’m pretty sure that Grafton Street hits many “Must Visit” lists, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time walking this stretch during our day in Dublin. We started in St. Stephen’s Green Park, which was absolutely lovely, and worked our way up the street. Plenty of...More

I walked in the street almost every day purely because I enjoyed the ambience, shopping here and just listening to music on the street, walking without having to worry about cars :-) This street holds so many beautiful memories for me :-)

Every large city in Europe has a car-free ped way for people to enjoy. Dublin's Grafton street does not disappoint. Chock full of wonderful stores, (even fresh flowers in January). Clothing, fine jewelry, accessories...everything you'd expect. Lovely street not to be missed!

Grafton Street is a traditional high street, packed with shops, cafes, and places to relax. There are several TI's in proximity, so if you're in need of their services they're always nearby. A perfect drag for retail therapy, relaxing, or people watching.

Just remember if you are driving parking in that area is next to impossible and even if the hotel offers off-street parking they often charge exorbitantly. Our practice has always been to stay further from city center... More

Hello all - I will be traveling to Dublin at the end of September solo. I will not have a rental car and this will be not only be my first time to Ireland, but my first time traveling internationally. Below is what I have come up with so far. Would love any feedback or suggestions. Thank you in advance! Day 1 (Sunday) - Arrive early morning in Dublin - I was thinking Hoho tour and maybe just walk around, get acclimated to the city and time difference. Not sure what's open on Sundays....More

Avoid at all costs, disgusting meal and terrible service. Whe I complained to the waiter that me meal was horrible he went off and obviously spoke to the manager. When he returned he told me he was sorry that he couldn't do anything for me this thime but that he would look after me next time I went. I replied that that was convenient considering there was no way I would ever eat there again!

Hi, I'm going with a couple of friends to Dublin for a weekend break on the 4-6th November. Could anyone advise us on what bars/clubs we should go to within the area of Temple Bar/Grafton Street. Especially places that are lively but are more suited to the 25plus age group. We're all in our mid-thirties and enjoy a party atmosphere. Many thanks

I'm afraid I acn't give an precise info, but i'm sure someone will soon, as even though I'm from Dublin, I haven't lived there for 15 years and just visit like a tourist. Anyway, you'll notice the lively places easily walking around Temple Bar, lots of places with live music. For somethinga bit more fancy, try Café en Seine, on Dawson Street (just next to Grafton Street), beautiful bar, generally with live jazz. Wonderful lively atmosphere for anyone in their 30's. Enjoy your weekend!
