Pedestrian-friendly Grafton Street serves as one of Dublin's main shopping districts, located in the busy city center. Consistently ranked among the world's most expensive shopping streets, this popular destination attracts both locals and foreign visitors with its high-end shops and trendy eateries. Closed to motorized traffic for most of its length, the broad boulevard is a prime location for street performers, eager to impress the passing shoppers and sightseers with their various talents. Even musician Glen Hansard, a standout among the city's famous street performers, busked along this street not long before he won his Academy Award.

  • It is a shopping street but most of the shops are closed largely due to Covid in the last 2 years. I would say that it'll take a bit more time to be what it's supposed to be.
