“Best Street In Dublin For Shopping”
Review of Henry Street

Henry Street
Ranked #74 of 551 things to do in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 April 2014

As a Dubliner, it has always annoyed me to see tourist coming to Dublin for the first time or perhaps on a return visit and only being told by the Irish tourist board about highly expensive shopping areas such as Grafton Street, Temple Bar and St Stephens Green for shopping. There is nothing wrong with this as those areas do indeed have a great many shops cafes etc to enjoy. However you might not enjoy the high charges those areas add onto your bill. They are known as the most costly shopping areas, not only in Ireland but also in Europe. You will find the most Dubliners go nowhere near them. Just across O'Connell Bridge and next to the GPO ( a major tourist attraction so easy to find) you will find a very large shopping street called Henry street. It is about the same size as Grafton street, if not bigger, filled with countless department stores such as Debenhams, FCUK, Pennys (Primark) Next, HMV and lots more. There are also two also a large shopping malls, The Ilac Centre and jervis Shopping Centre, right in the centre of Henry street. You will see true Dubliners shopping and chatting, along with friendly street venders selling goods from stalls on the streets, anything from sweets to clothing. It is known by most Dubliners that something you by on Henry street, will cost you double on Grafton street (due to its posh name and innocent tourists not knowing where else to go. So take it from a Dubliner, see the REAL centre of shopping in Dublin city centre, Henry street. You will find it just off O'Connell street, turn left after the GOP, next to the Spire. You wont be sorry when you see the money you have saved.

This street in the heart of the city centre offers a wide variety of shopping for every type and for every one.Many big stores like Debenhams,Zara,Arnots are there.Two shopping malls like Jervis and Ilac offer many good brands.
Spar is in front of the street and great landmarks like Rotunda hospital,General post office,O'Connell bridge and others are at walking distance.Imax Multiplex Theatre ,many restaurants are at few moment's walk.
I recommend it for shopping more than Grafton street.

Awesome street where you can find lots of stores and it's one of the most popular streets in Dublin. Crowded place every time and near other famous places and streets of Dublin, such as Grafton St. Talbot St. and so on.

Really good place to visit and buy stuffs and souvenirs.

Great shopping - close to Jervis Shopping Centre and Arnotts. I still liked walking along Grafton Street but definitely worth the walk across the River Liffey to see all the sights along Henry Street...
