Grafton Street

Grafton Street is Dublin’s thoroughfare for high-street shopping. Surrounding streets and winding lanes are a treasure trove of uniquely Irish Boutiques with special gifts not available on the high street. Right in the heart of the city centre, a trip to this shopping district could easily be combined with a museum visit or a meal in one of the quarter's broad range of restaurants.


Dublin offers diverse shopping options for all tastes–whether you're after Waterford crystal, jewellery from a local contemporary designer, or even handmade stationary, you're sure to find it here. High street shopping is focused on either side of the Liffey, while department stores and open-air markets also feature. If you want to intersperse your shopping with a little sightseeing, take a stroll down Grafton Street or stop by The Spire, which overlooks Henry Street.
