Lots of big and small stores, malls, restaurants, pubs and cafes. Felt safe and popped into a few stores to check things out. If you want tourist souvenirs, they are easy to find here.

Great place to shop, eat, watch buskers perform and stroll along the main walkway. There are several coffee shops, department stores and smaller boutique stores. It's always very busy so be prepared for a lot of people strolling through.

Once upon a time, Grafton Street was a fine shopping street. Now it's full of nothing but international brands - you could be anywhere. What a failure of urban planning!

This is a main shopping street in Dublin and it is always busy. This street is home to all the popular high street brands. Good street to walk on providing you can keep up the pace.

I typically avoid shopping on trips but I found the entire area very cool and couldn't resist walking around taking in the atmosphere.

Here is everything within reach, from the H& M, and other big chain stores, to Irish specialties. The only thing lacking, is a few benches, to sit and look at the throng.

The shopping is fine but what makes Grafton Street special is the beautiful architecture, the street performers and the small street vendors. It is a full Irish experience. Don't miss the chance to check out the smaller side streets; there are great cafes everywhere.
