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.

  • My experience tells me the best way to visit downtown Dublin is to walk. Walk more. Stop and have lunch and a Guinness and then walk more. 
  • It is one of the central areas is a shopping street where you can buy first brand. In addition to the post office building, has very close the Pro Catholic Cathedral of Santa Maria and in the Centre the Spire (a "needle of 120 meters high, three meter in diameter at the base and 15 cm at the tip") is considered to be the world's largest sculpture (we miss at the base there is no information on it)

  • O'Connell Street is busy with lots of traffic and lots of people. It's worth a see and I liked The Spire as well as the monument at the top of the street.
