Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came here for the atmosphere rather than the shopping. The best time to come is during the day, when the shops are open, although it always seems to be busy. Buskers - some of them quite good - add to the festive atmosphere. Pedestrians only, so you don't have to worry about cars (but you do have to watch out for the occasional cyclist). Right near Trinity College.

First of this both the Fifth and Madison Ave of Dublin, Ireland. Second it much easier to walk on than both Fifth and Madison . Lastly, this where Brown Thomas which is the Saks Fifth Avenue of the Republic of Ireland is.

This would have to be the busiest pedestrianised shopping street in Dublin, closely followed by Henry street and the up and coming Capel street, we love just walking up and down here taking it all in, browsing as we go along, it is also a hot spot for numerous buskers.

Great street to listen to buskers, all very talented. Great street to shop for unique clothes. Lots of places to eat too. One end of the street is entrance to St Stephen’s Green Park and horse carriage rides.

There is a little bit of everything for every one here. There is music, shopping, magic tricks, and other entertainment. There are some cafes and restaurants also. We love this street.

For our first afternoon in Dublin, walking up and down Grafton street was entertaining -and a nice way to knock off some of our list of things we wanted to buy for family at home. There are buskers (and they are really talented young people!) along the way, plus a variety of cafes and a couple pubs with seating for good people watching. Many of the major hotels are within walking distance as is Trinity College. While not home to a tremendous amount of upscale shopping the street does have a nice, eclectic mix. Be sure to duck down the side streets for some truly lovely Irish woolen shops and even a few clothiers. We also visited a few churches to admire the stained glass windows and light candles. For our first afternoon in Dublin this was a lovely place to be as we pushed through the fog of jet lag and time change.

Loved walking through this area and enjoying many of the street performers and lots of nice little shops. Very close to the Westbury Hotel and we walked through here to get to many sites and enjoyed it each time.

I did not see what all the hype was about. It was just Meh. I heard the shopping on the other side of the bridge was way better. Loved the Rolling donut.

It is a shopping street but most of the shops are closed largely due to Covid in the last 2 years. I would say that it'll take a bit more time to be what it's supposed to be.
