Grafton Street and environs



Adapted from a country lane in 1708, Grafton Street is now the commercial hub of Dublin with a mix of high street and high-end boutiques, buskers, street artists and flower sellers. This eclectic mix is bookended by St. Stephen's Green at the top of the street - a green oasis in the hustle and bustle of the city – and Trinity College at the bottom.

 

Bronze statues of Phil Lynott and Molly Malone are mainstays of tourist photos and the street and those perpendicular to it are littered with cafés and restaurants, including those that feature in James Joyce's Ulysses. Grafton Street is pedestrianized so you can take in the sights and sounds at your leisure while strolling along.

 

At Christmas a massive tree is erected beside the Stephen's Green Shopping Centre and lights adorn the shopping mecca while numerous carolers and other performers help to create a warm, jolly atmosphere. Be sure to check out the Christmas scenes in the Brown Thomas department store window as well!
