I felt nothing magical about this section of town. It was a pedestrian zone but really a crowded shopping street just like most larger cities. Unless you are shopping, I wouldn't bother.

Pedestrian walking area, lots of places to shop for quality souvenirs as well as Irish sweaters, shoes, trinkets or sit and drink or eat.

one of the main shopping streets in Dublin, only for pedestrians, has a lot of souvenir shops, some department stores like M&S and irish cashmere and wool made cloth stores, prices for this high quality items are adequate. buildings are old and have nice fasades

We love Bewley’s timeless charm and are so pleased it’s been refurbished but has maintained all its original features. Service, coffee and cakes all first class. A must do when in Dublin.

We walked up here on our first afternoon in Dublin. As we reached the top we saw a crowd around a busker. We watched him for ages. Funny, entertaining and skilled on a 6ft penny farthing. At the top of Grafton Street is the arched...More

I do not recall any fabric shops on Grafton St. O'Callaghan Hotel Davenport is a great hotel, centrally located and walking distance to many places including Trinity College and many restaurants. The staff are wonderful.

When we were there the shops shut by 6pm. Parking is hard to find as it is very competitive. The shops are busy and i would recommend to get your shopping done during the day. Even the little stores close early.

Leprechauns are everywhere in Ireland.The problem is that they are invisible unless you know how to see them. Try a drop of uisce beatha, or a couple of pints of Guinness. That helps.
