Still a great shopping street but increasingly being taken over by US chain stores. Street music and artists add to the colourful nature of the street.

Great are for shopping if that's what you are here for. Mixture of the same department stores as UK apart from a couple of local ones. Also a few Irish shops selling touristy products. But nice and clean, no litter !

Plenty to do and see. Shop, visit a bar, enjoy lunch, enjoy Guinness with friends. This place is bustling with tourists and locals.

Grafton Street is a shopping street close to Temple Bar and St Stephen's park. It has lots of nice shops and I suggest you walk through it when strolling around Dublin streets.

If you visit Dublin without experiencing GS - you are missing out big time - lovely shops - street music - atmosphere and friendly locals. Lots of places to eat and drink - make sure you walk the little side streets too!!! Enjoy

I love Grafton street. Brown Thomas is my favourite and the teenager is patiently awaiting the arrival of Pink in the new Victoria Secret due to open Autumn 17.

Pedestrianised and lined with (mostly) chain stores, this busy shopping street is a thoroughfare leading from Trinity College to St Stephen's Green. It's something of a Dublin hub but it is frequented by (occasionally aggressive) down-and-outs and beggars. In fact there is a stall acting...More

This is a great street full of shops but that is not why I like it so much. I love the buzz with so many people strolling through it with some excellent solo and group buskers . If you have the time just stoll slowly...More

I do not recall any fabric shops on Grafton St. O'Callaghan Hotel Davenport is a great hotel, centrally located and walking distance to many places including Trinity College and many restaurants. The staff are wonderful.

When we were there the shops shut by 6pm. Parking is hard to find as it is very competitive. The shops are busy and i would recommend to get your shopping done during the day. Even the little stores close early.
