There are two main shopping streets in Dublin, both are pedestrianised with Henry Street on the north side of Dublin city and Grafton Street on the south side of Dublin city. Both streets are just either side of the River Liffey and only a few minutes’ walk apart but both areas have a distinctly different buzz and identity.
Grafton Street is located 1.4km from Maldron Hotel Pearse Street and is one of the most prominent shopping districts in Dublin. This street is well known for its flagship stores such as Brown Thomas a large designer department store as well as the best known high-street retailers.
Henry Street is the other main shopping street in Dublin and is home to many well-known high street stores. This street is also home to two large department stores – Debenhams and Arnott’s.
In between the two streets are other shopping areas including the cobbled streets of Temple Bar, home to vintage shops, arts and crafts and souvenirs and Georges Street.
