There are so many things to do/see/ enjoy while walking down O'Connell Street. People watching is perfect, windows are fun and many places to stop for a tea/coffee and a bite to eat.

O'Connell Street in Dublin is one of the most famous spots to stroll. It is lined with shopping, restaurants, pubs and statues to check out. The Sphere is located here. We heard a bit of the history behind this on our walking tour.
