Short street that has many lively and busy bars and eateries. You could spend a few weeks eating well on Dawson Street. Runs from Stephen's Green to Trinity College at the other end.

We walked along Dawson Street since it was recommended. However, we felt that Crafton and O'Connell Streets were much better for shopping.

How can I get from the airport to School house lane, near Dawson Street? We are staying at Molesworth Suites. Should we take airport coach, airport bus... and which number? Do you know what's the price and a site to get the route?
