I was inspired to spend more time on Dawson Street (instead of the more popular Grafton Street) by the TA reviews. Thank you Tripadvisor, and thanks too to letterkennycaint and petercurran.

No, there are still building works going on down the street as there are a number of building projects going on at once.
