O'Connell Street, Dublin

(3.2/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Walk the city's main promenade, O'Connell Street, just as Dubliners have been doing since the 1600s. Boutiques and pubs line the thoroughfare and stay filled with visitors and locals for most of the day. Grab a seat and a pint to people-watch. Notice the architecture, a blend of historic 18th- and 19th-century facades with modern additions, such as the Dublin Spire. At the lower end of the street, you'll find a statue commemorating its namesake Daniel O'Connell, the famous nationalist. With our online itinerary creator, Dublin attractions like O'Connell Street can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
