They're constructing a new rail line and its a mess everywhere. Loud, dirty, barricades everywhere and masses of people. Stay away.

Turn left at the Millennium Spire to Henry Street. This is where all the good shops are. Less crowded than Grafton Street. For simple and trouble free lunches, have lunch at the cafes attached to the department stores of Mark and Spencer or Debenens.

O'Connell Street has such history and provide many modern day retailers amongst what was, for a short time, the sight of a war. The 'millenium' spire is a sight to see, and many toursit buses operate from the central focal point.

Busy times on O'Connell Street, tourists abound in huge groups, tours leaving, lots of shopping, food places, Casinos available and huge construction. Be especially careful crossing the street. Ireland drives on the left side of the street.

You get on/off the tourist coach here. You get on/off the bus here. You go to the bars and restaurants from here. You cannot miss the 'sore' - the needle like monument or as the locals call it - the 'awful' tower - ask the tourist guide when you visit Dublin :)

This side of town has a great buzz and several places to eat. It gets crowded during rush hour but nice metro scene, despite construction.

This street houses both hotels, shops and pubs. It is a very busy street. The architecture on this street is very diverse- a mix of old and new.

Busy shopping area. During our visit to Dublin they were putting in new tram lines so disruptive in places. Lots of shops. Nice wide pavement.
