Grafton Street

Dublin’s main shopping street is known for high-end luxury and is home to Brown Thomas, Ireland’s flagship department store, while both the Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre and the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre are located just off it. The pedestrianised street, which runs from Trinity College Dublin to St Stephen’s Green, is always a hive of activity and colour and is famous for its fashion, its flower-sellers and its buskers. It is a must-see for any visitor to the city.

Temple Bar

Known as the Cultural Quarter, Temple Bar is a hotspot for tourists by day and by night. During the day, you can wander its small, cobbled streets and browse in a range of eclectic stores and galleries. There is always so much happening in the area which is why it is one of Dublin’s most popular tourist destinations. It is also home to plenty of wonderful eateries and coffee shops for when you need to relax and refuel.

O’Connell Street

From Temple Bar, it is a short stroll up the River Liffey to O’Connell Street, Dublin’s main thoroughfare and home to the GPO and the Spire as well as to a range of well-known High Street shops. Located just off O’Connell Street, you will find Henry Street, a slice of old Dublin filled with variety, colour and character. Well-known shops – including Arnotts Department Store – and busy malls line the street and both the Jervis Street Shopping Centre and the Ilac Centre are nearby.

Dundrum Town Centre

Outside of the city and accessible via the Luas light rail system, Dundrum Town Centre is Ireland’s largest shopping centre and home to many of the world’s most famous brand names. There is a vast array of shops as well as a cinema, restaurants and coffee shops. For the perfect day out of retail therapy, it is an unbeatable location.
