My brother's American Girlfriend said that she found the souvenir shops in Galway to be better value and with a better range of goods than in Dublin. So if you are going to visit both maybe Galway is a better option. The Shops on Nassau St. (south of Grafton St) have very high quality (and expensive) gifts. Kilkenny Design has the best range of Waterford Crystal and Beleek Pottery.
What to pay: A lot!! For example a simple Beleek vase costs about E80!!
This is a good area for all sorts of shopping! They have it all on Grafton Street, like I said I am a big fan of walking around every where I go and this is a nice walk from the spire in the middle of O'Connell st but it is well worth it on a nice day.
On top of shopping the side streets have some good places to eat , or stop in for a pint as well as watch some sporting events on the telly.
What to buy: What ever you want...
What to pay: thats on you
As it was Valentines Day, the flower sellers were doing a roaring trade. It seemed that EVERYBODY in Dublin was buying flowers that day... carrying armloads home to loved ones. The lovely ladies selling flowers were quite happy to give directions to daft tourists too.
What to buy: All kinds of flowers!
What to pay: Hmmm...as I wasn't buying any, I'm not sure what they cost... but Dubliners seemed happy enough.

You've heard all about Grafton street - and it's worth a look. But I found it to be a little too touristy and too expensive.
On the north side of the Liffey is Henry street. The stores here to be more reasonably priced than Grafton and there's more of a local flavor.
