O'Connell Street, Dublin

3.2
#2 of 82 in Shopping in Dublin
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.

  • We were in the fall in Dublin and the time was already cold, then I recommend you to visit is in winter, because with a warm can take advantage of all the street offers.
