Shopping in Dublin focuses on the two main pedestrianised shopping streets: Grafton Street on the Southside and Henry Street on the Northside. The two streets are just either side of the river, a few minutes walk apart.
Grafton Street is located between Trinity College and St Stephen's Green. It is known to be the more smarter and more fashionable area to shop in with a wide variety of fashionable and designer Stores. St. Stephens Green Shopping Centre is also located here with a wide selection of Stores. Grafton Street is only a short walk from the smart The Dawson Hotel.
Henry Street is located in the Northside of the City. It hosts numerous Department Stores such as the popular Arnotts, and an assortment of popular clothing and footwear Stores. The ILAC shopping centre, the newer Jervis Street Shopping Centre are also both situated on this Street. O'Connell Street, probably one of Dublins most well known Streets, is located nearby with a variety of Stores to tempt the passing trade. Henry Street is located within a 15 minute walk from The Dawson Hotel with public transport also available.
All the Shopping Areas are loaded with Boutiques, Restaurants, Libraries, Gift Shops and other Retail Stores where one could get nearly anything they desire. The main Shopping Areas are mostly situated in close proximity and you are guaranteed a memorable experience in each of the shopping havens.
