  Grafton Street flower market
by tvor

Grafton Street contains upmarket stores such as the posh Brown Thomas department store. It's closed off to traffic so it's usually heaving with people. I was there in April and there were flower stalls and market stalls selling various items including jewellry at prices that were a bit more reasonable. Bewley's Cafe is on Grafton Street and is famed for it's breakfast, albeit at an inflated price. Marks and Spencer's is there as well. At one end is St. Stephen's shopping center, across from St. Stephen's Green and at the other end is Temple Bar and Trinity College. There are lots of good shops and restaurants along Grafton Street and the smaller cross streets. There are buskers there on the weekend as well.

What to buy: Some prices may be a bit high but there are some interesting shops to have a browse in.
