Easy to get a land maker with the Giant Needle in the Ground. All the top hotels and stores here or just off this street. You can board all the double decker buses. Dont forget to visit the post office too. You can exchange money...More

Popular street lined with shops cafes and bars. In the middle is the millennium spire. Worth a wander down. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

We enjoyed walking along O’Connell Street in Dublin, plenty to see as well as lots of shops and restaurants. It starts at the bridge and passes the spireand the GPO, both prominentlandmarks.

Last trip to Ireland I stayed on O'Connell Street in Dublin. They were just completing the commuter rail system to get around Dublin easily. Plenty of good restaurants along the street...I would recommend !

Can't say a lot to see here....I was starting to get tired of the crowds and this street is crowded without much to see. My favorite park is near the river with the O'Connell statue.

Everyone talks about it but I can’t recommend it. There are too many other things to see and do. If you are want to shop then have at it.
