Dublin's signature businesses, including the city's most elegant department store Brown Thomas. The upper end of the street is anchored by the sunny, glass-roofed St Stephen's Green Shopping Centre. In the surrounding area, Dawson Street features Waterstone's, considered by many to be this literary city's best book store. Wicklow Street boasts some funky shoe shops and Clarendon Street is home to the upmarket Powerscourt Townhouse Centre. In all, this district should supply most, if not all, of your shopping needs.

Lovely for shopping, visit Brown Thomas for designer goodies or walk up to Zara if you're on a budget. Really nice cafe for lunch, nice vegetarian food.

Definitely the best place to go shopping in Dublin to pick up some souvenirs. Lots of shops and restaurants on a vehicle-free street makes for a nice time.

We loved walking the length of this busy pedestrian street. Filled with shops, department stores, eateries of all kinds, street art and lots of outstanding buskers. Street entertainers must be auditioned and licensed in order to have a spot here. We did lots of people watching. Although there are, of course, crowds of tourists, there are just as many locals here, too. A must!

Grafton Street is quaint and has many shops, some upscale. Of course there are restaurants and pubs all around. You will see street performers. It is one of the areas in Dublin you should visit, while walking around.

Grafton Street is one of the most prominent shopping areas in Dublin. Only a 20 mins bus ride from the apartment.
Popular Department Stores such as Marks & Spencers, Brown Thomas and BT2 and smaller high street chains including Vero Moda, Next, Oasis, A-Wear, River Island can all be found on Grafton Street. Up market stores such as Pia Bang, Reiss, Monsoon and Laura Ashley can also be found on this Dublin shopping street.

Grafton Street is an ideal place for buying footwear. Shoe-shops like Korkys, Zerep, Barretts, Nine West and Bally provide a wide range of quality shoes. For gifts, there's the Dublin bookshop, the Body Shop, Tie rack, the Dublin Jewellery institution that is Weirs, along with other jewellers like Ernest Jones, Gavronski, West and another branch of Fields. There's the Camera Centre and a Spectra Photo to get your pictures developed. If you've phone troubles, there are branches of O2, Vodaphone and Carphone Warehouse. There are three pharmacies including a Boots, various banks and a few newsagents.

Didn't buy anything on the street but it's nice to walk up a road with no cars.

a walk down Grafton is rewarded by countless shops and restaurants lined on either side that are trying to gain your attention...come in come in...I am not sure if it were the Guinness or the Jameson Irish Coffee that caused me to think...buy...buy...buy.

Great shopping street with many names not found in the US. Also home of several reputable cell phone stores should you need a temporary, prepaid SIM card to use a mobile while in Ireland.

The main shopping street in the centre of Dublin, home to all the big department stores. Also contains the statue of "Molly Malone" aka "the tart with the cart".

Maybe it was just the post-Christmas excitement, but it was a lot of fun to see everyone out and about. Mixed in with the shops are some of Dublin's oldest pubs, O'Donoghue's, Bruxellies, and McNeery,s.

I love walking streets! So nice not to have to deal with cars while you are expoloring a city! Grafton street has mostly shopping but it's a great place to see the city and enjoy the street entertainers!

The buildings are historical but the shops are mostly modern. A nice break from Temple Bar. The main strip isn't unlike those you see in other European capitals but the alley ways are pleasant and there are fewer tourists here.
