Grafton Street Tips (8)

Ah, Grafton Street...a leisurely stroll

Favorite thing I would definitely believe that a walk along Grafton Street is a must, even if you do not go into any store or other building. We saw a couple of street entertainers while we were there (got lucky, I suppose).

Fondest memory It may be that I haven't been to too many places in Europe as of yet, but I'll miss Grafton Street and the fact that us shoppers can mill around, cross the street and back without looking over our shoulders for passing cars.

Grafton Street's buskers

Favorite thing If the weather is good, make sure to take a stroll down Grafton St, especially if school is out, because there are bound to be several very talented groups playing along the street. They vary from young people playing classical chamber music, to duos singing REM songs, or more offbeat material, to the old staples, like the middle-aged blues guitarist, who has inspired more than one youthful imitator. There are also street entertainers, dancers and the occasional didgeridoo-player and pan-pipe group to get your attention. Whoever is there, the quality of the music is always excellent, and the musicians well worth your euro or two.

Favorite thing Graffton Street has all the cool shops and good places to eat. O'Connell street is a more scenic walk with the river next to it. That's a picture of some buildings along O'Connell street that look pretty neat.

Favorite thing Go to GRAFTON STREET for shopping, restaurants, pubs, cafes or just people watching! In the background you can see the beginning of St. Stephen's Green.

Fondest memory I found people in Dublin to be very approachable and friendly. One day I had lunch here on Grafton Street, ended up sharing a table with someone (which I think is common when restaurants/cafes are crowded), struck up a conversation... and ended up with an invitation to the seaside town of Dun Laoghaire for the weekend!

Favorite thing soak in the unique atmosphere in and around the world famous Grafton Street. Here's a glimpse of some merry buskers along the pedestrianized mall.

Grafton Street is my fave hangout. I was here almost daily since my hotel is just round the corner. This is definitely Dublin's equivalent to the world famous Rodeo Drive. High fashion boutiques and trendy shops like Escada, Warehouse, Miss Selfridge etc can be found here.
