Grafton Street

The Grafton Street Quarter comprises of not only Grafton Street but the intersecting winding streets that are littered with the best shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants in our city. This wonderful little area is straddled on one side by Trinity College Dublin and on the other by the picturesque St Stephen’s Green.


The Grafton Street area is just as well-heeled with bars & pubs as it is with shops. Grab an Irish Coffee and watch the shoppers go by or relax with a Pina Colada after a busy day on the high-street. 

The Posh One - The Bailey – A people watchers paradise, with a heaving menu and tasty refreshments.

The Local One - The Duke – A true local atmosphere in the heart of the city.

The “Place To Be Seen” One - Lillies Bordello – An upmarket Dublin institution with reasonably priced cocktails.

The Fun One – Bruxelles – The statue of legendary rock star Phill Lynott stands as a figurehead for this famous Dublin rock bar.

The Authentic Italian One - Carluccio's - Famous, international, tasty, traditional and always an amazing experience.
