Nice shopping for souvenirs. Interesting street performers. A few nice pubs. Steer clear of Captain America's restaurant, good not so good. This is a very young hangout place for college kids in families on a budget.

A lot of good stuff here (shops, food, street entertainment) but it has a very touristy feel to it and I am sure there are no bargains to be had.

Beautiful shops, great pedestrian mall - really nice to walk around. The very high end stores are here - as well as many American brand stores.

We walked up and down Grafton Street, enjoying all of the shops, and pubs. Take your time, even in the rain.

There're lots of shops and small markets but the real thing about Grafton is the street artists. There're lots of amazing musicians, dancers and jugglers!

The street has a nice vibe to it. Lots of shops on either side. Upcoming Artists display their talent on the street. Saw a young girl perform and she was really good It's always busy. Lots of restaurants/fast food places to eat. The famous Trinity...More

If you are looking for that special gift that just screams Irish you will find it here. The pedestrian zone is car free and you can walk shop to shop in comfort without the worry of being run over. Wear some comfortable shoes.

a pedestrianised street with high-end Brown Thomas department store, some nice pubs, cafes in surrounding streets, part of most attractive area of Dublin city centre

Amazing street to go to for a walk! Very nice to chill there for a bit. But, once you've walk 30min you're done.

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
