“Shopaholics central”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Very busy area. Hold tight to your wallet. But it is worth a visit! I guess it depends on the exchange rate

“Meh.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

An overcrowded touristy attraction with plenty of cheap shops and eateries bustling with everyone except the Irish. The most valuable store on the whole street is 'Boots' where you can pick up much needed toiletries after your arrival.

“Busy & Bustling”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Tourist magnet at weekends slightly less busy in the week. Plenty of street theatre and buskers, eateries etc. Brilliant entrance hall to Bewlays tea house. And great coffee also. Well worth a stroll.

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

There's something for everyone on Grafton Street. There are shops, street vendors, eateries, buskers, and performance artists. Or just stroll and watch the people. Very busy, great atmosphere.

“Bustling withlots of buskers and other entertainment”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Not really a great shopping street as most of the shops are the same as elsewhere.. It is worth going there for the atmosphere, the free entertainment and the great coffee or tea at Bewlays.
