If you love shopping this is where you would want to visit on your trip to Dublin. Even if you do not care for shopping you can still watch and listen to the street performers play their music.

Worth a walk around to find some interesting (and usual) shops. Lots of little pubs and bars nearby if you need a break

We enjoyed the variety of shops, the live performers, and the convenience of several ATMs along this pedestrian area in the heart of the city.

Great place to go shopping and people watching. Many of the stores are the same old, same old but there some unique ones tucked in here and there. Also was happy to see the beautiful flower vendors set up along the way

Grafton street is great for shopping . One of the best for choices .Very upmarket and pricey . It also has Stephens green shopping centre beside it . If you like casual dress then go to Henry street .

We went here the last night before we left Ireland and enjoyed the atmosphere on a Saturday evening. There were tons of pubs, restaurants, stores, etc. Lots of people playing music in the street and enjoying themselves. Stop by if in the area.

Right across from the entrance to St. Stephen's Green. Even if you are not into the "touristy" stuff. You must walk this street at least once.

This is the heart of Dublin's tourist area, and it is rather similar to countless tourist streets in other cities. However, the pubs are Irish, and many of the street musicians are excellent. In Joyce's Ulysses Leopold Bloom walks through it to Adam Court.

I do not recall any fabric shops on Grafton St. O'Callaghan Hotel Davenport is a great hotel, centrally located and walking distance to many places including Trinity College and many restaurants. The staff are wonderful.

When we were there the shops shut by 6pm. Parking is hard to find as it is very competitive. The shops are busy and i would recommend to get your shopping done during the day. Even the little stores close early.
I've heard there's a department store in Dublin centre that has/used to have benches inside which had leprechauns on them. Can anyone tell me which one it is as I'm struggling to find it? thanks
