I needed to have a watch fixed and after a lot of searching I found the only place in Dublin that would undertake such work was with Stephen of Dawson’s Jewellers at 21 Dawson Street. The assistance and service I received was outstanding and the great thing is, the watch is now working perfectly. This shop is well worth a... More

Dawson Street is one of the best places in Dublin both for buying books and CDs and for having lunch at a reasonable price in Lemon or in Dolce Sicily. It is a bit more jammed currently, because of the LUAS works but it is worthy a visit overall.

This used to be a quiet street in the past but with the introduction of many upmarket bars and restaurants it became quite a busy street especially in the evening and over the weekends. However, the road works and construction are now very prominent and take away somewhat the charm of what the street used to possess. It is cluttered... More

Some quirky places along this Street - particularly the pubs at the top end by Stephen's Green. The Masion House is a key site for any tourist. Be warned, the street is being dug up at the moment, but don't let this put you off. The places along this street are worth the effort

We were here for only the afternoon and night before our return flight, so didn't have too much time to look around. It seemed very busy; but we did enjoy waling around. We stayed at the Dawson Hotel & Spa, and had a gourmet dinner at The Fire Restaurant right across the street.

Lots of construction going on here, so the street is not at its best. It has several interesting cafes and a very large book store, so that might be worth your time. It's a shorter street, and for now, much less impressive than Grafton St.

I was inspired to spend more time on Dawson Street (instead of the more popular Grafton Street) by the TA reviews. Thank you Tripadvisor, and thanks too to letterkennycaint and petercurran. I looked it up on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dawson_Street) in preparation for a whole day's research. But just now is not the best moment to dawdle down Dawson Street! The problem?...
