Grafton Street

When people think of shopping in Dublin, Grafton Street is the first place that comes to mind. Throughout the year, this street, which is just a five-minute walk from The Trinity City Hotel, is a bustling area full of music, character and colour. You will find a host of global designer brands here as well as shops of all shapes and sizes.

Grafton Street is also home to the world-famous Brown Thomas department store which has four floors of the latest women’s fashion, menswear, accessories and make-up as well as two very popular restaurants, Hugh Brown’s and Edition Café.

550m - 7 minute walk

Creative Quarter

From Grafton Street, a stroll down one of the many side streets behind Brown Thomas will bring you into the Creative Quarter. Here you will find slightly more offbeat and quirky shops including vintage jewellers and bespoke design stores. It is also home to a host of coffee shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as the George’s Street Arcade, a redbrick Victorian-style indoor market with an eclectic mix of market stalls.

Comprising Wicklow Street, South William Street, Drury Street, George’s Street, Dame Street and Fade Street, this is where you will discover the true essence of the city. Relaxed, fun and always surprising, the Creative Quarter is a must-see if you like things a bit different but very authentic.

Temple Bar

A rite of passage for all visitors to Dublin, the colourful Temple Bar area is a must-see by day – and by night.

It is a great area to wander around in during the day when you can enjoy its cobbled streets, independent stores and cool coffee shops and restaurants. Known as Dublin’s Cultural Quarter, Temple Bar is home to the Irish Film Institute as well as lots of galleries.

O'Connell and Henry Street

Dublin’s main thoroughfare is full of great shopping with lots of household names on either side of this wide boulevard-style street. It is also home to the GPO and the Spire.

Wander down Henry Street and explore a whole range of shops as well as the Jervis Street Shopping Centre and the Ilac Centre. You will find the world’s most famous brand names and high-street stores in this area – as well as lots of great places to eat.
