One of the best places to do your shopping – a whole street full of different shops.
THE street for shopping
The inhabitants of Dublin flock to Grafton Street in groves to go shopping, which is more than reason enough to follow them and discover what types of shops are worth visiting. Located just south of the River Liffey, this pedestrian street is entirely dedicated to the shops which line its pavements, interrupted only by pubs and restaurants in which to take a break and eat something. It tends to be very busy, especially on sunny days, so it’s a good idea to watch out for your wallet – as you would anywhere with big bustling crowds. At night it is so beautifully lit up – not just at Christmas, but all year – that the lights alone are a sight worth seeing. Clothing shops, shoe shops, florists: shopping here is more relaxed and whimsical than in the shopping centres, and at the end of the boulevard you can decide whether you want to go back and buy something else or just have a rest in St Stephen’s Green park.
