Grafton Street, Dublin

(3.9/5 based on 2,600+ reviews on the web)
Pedestrian-friendly Grafton Street serves as one of Dublin's main shopping districts, located in the busy city center. Consistently ranked among the world's most expensive shopping streets, this popular destination attracts both locals and foreign visitors with its high-end shops and trendy eateries. Closed to motorized traffic for most of its length, the broad boulevard is a prime location for street performers, eager to impress the passing shoppers and sightseers with their various talents. Even musician Glen Hansard, a standout among the city's famous street performers, busked along this street not long before he won his Academy Award.

  • Even in the rain and the cold Grafton Street is a pleasure to enjoy. So many unique cafes, pubs and shops. 
  • Street of Dublin with many shops but especially of luxury. Pedestrian area which is significant.

  • This is a good area to just take a while and browse around ... we enjoyed the variety of shops and that they were not all main chains especially if you get off into the surrounding street.
