We started walking here, grabbed dinner and drinks and kept walking to temple bar area. All very fun and connected, great for people watching and to hear excellent live music. Nice shops, decent prices!

We stopped at Grafton Street to do some shopping. It is a busy crowded street that has your typical souvenir shops and a multitude of pubs and street vendors.

Grafton Street looks a real picture with all the Christmas Lights. A busy and lively area with lots of shops and shoppers and a very festive atmosphere. Friendly as always.

We went to Grafton street to do some shopping. It is extremely busy so prepare yourselves before you go. We enjoyed some of the shops, but others were just too crammed to enjoy. Gave up eventually and went to the pub!

Over crowded street full of high end expensive shops and fast food outlets. The only good thing about Grafton Street are the buskers who usually dish out some good music. Back in the early 90's this street used to be better but now it is...More

Just remember if you are driving parking in that area is next to impossible and even if the hotel offers off-street parking they often charge exorbitantly. Our practice has always been to stay further from city center... More
