Bring your wallet - but keep it under wraps!

Atmospheric shopping area where you will be tempted to spend, spend, spend. Some quite pricey stores and also some first class buskers.

Grafton street is always worth a visit, particularly at night, or at the weekend. There are usually street musicians playing for your enjoyment and the hope of a tip.

My mom and I walked Grafton Street and had a lot of fun. There were some musical performers out and the stores were great to wander in and out of. I think it would be appropriate for all ages!

I did minimal shopping on our 4 day Dublin trip. We did stroll down Grafton Street and it seems to be more high end shops. It is very pedestrian friendly and great people watching.

For me this is just a crowded shopping street - nothing special. If you are looking for a pair of pants or a new jacket this could be your place, but otherwise - I don't think so.

We walked from our hotel near Dame St to Grafton St to see what it was all about. We loved it. Lots of music up & down the street, many shops to choose from, no traffic. It was great.

Good some very decent shops here. Didn't buy anything, as prices were noticeably higher than London, even if the Euro Exchange rates had been more to our advantage.
