We’ve been shopping here plenty of times, great variety of food. Last time we went was at Christmas time and the lights were great. Always street entertainment on your way down too. Very busy - but expected from a city!

A street full of shops for everybody. At the end of the street you can enjoy your coffee at the park ahead.. Don't forget to take your photo with the statue of the legend Phil Lynott!

Walking up and down Grafton Street one sees several well known shops. M&S has a delightful cafe and rooftop area where one has to fend off huge seagulls. Food was fresh and reasonably priced. The street performers varied from quite good to abysmal.

There are a ton of little and not so little shops here, plenty of cafes and pubs located either on or just off of Grafton St. I was particularly interested in the smaller local shops (locally crafted jewelery, linen, pottery, art) as opposed to the...More

I'm not one for shopping, but on a nice day there are all manner of musicians here. Some of them are quite good.

Persoally I enjoy walking up & down Grafton Street. However, I feel that at times the buskers performing cause people jams on the streets. This needs to be controlled. Top end has Stephen's Green, while bottom end has Trinity College, Bank Of Ireland where Pres....More

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.

Leprechauns are everywhere in Ireland.The problem is that they are invisible unless you know how to see them. Try a drop of uisce beatha, or a couple of pints of Guinness. That helps.
