Can't say a lot to see here....I was starting to get tired of the crowds and this street is crowded without much to see. My favorite park is near the river with the O'Connell statue.

Everyone talks about it but I can’t recommend it. There are too many other things to see and do. If you are want to shop then have at it.

We went on a walking tour of Dublin and it included walking down O’Connell street. The food and shopping in Dublin was really nice. I suggest doing a walking tour so that you don’t miss any of the older stores, bars, or restaurants along the...More
