We walked along Dawson Street since it was recommended. However, we felt that Crafton and O'Connell Streets were much better for shopping.

Dawson Street in central Dublin is a very busy thoroughfare with some nice shops and bars. It's charm and character have been obliterated by seemingly endless light rail works that seem to have been dragging on for years and years. The result is noise and...More

No, there are still building works going on down the street as there are a number of building projects going on at once.
