Shopping there is amazing, there s Primark in Pennies which you can find another 2 in Parnell street and St Mary street, One must see the Stephen Green shopping centre with selected brands of fashion on the other side on the river.

Cool place. Scenic, good "social media" picture place if you're into that stuff. They light it up into different lights, i.e. it was the color of the Irish flag.

When we visited Dublin there were construction works taking place on O' Connell Str. It is a wide street leading close to Temple Bar area and has some cafe's and department stores like Pennies.

we stayed 20 meters off this street, a brilliant hotel, The Acadamy Plaza Best Western, in a quiet cul-de-sac... Outside the hotel you can see the tour busses. I must say by far the best fun and totally the best value was the YELLOW TOUR BUS!!!! The driver Andrew was brill.He was so funny, telling little jokes all the way... More

Being from Dublin, it is an embarrassment. It's our main street, in our capital city. No need to go into why..it's quite obvious when you stroll down it. Shame.

In the past it was a lovely quaint street. Now it is full of fast food restaurants with the ugly spire in the middle of it.
