#2 of 111 in Shopping in Dublin
Walk the city's main promenade, O'Connell Street, just as Dubliners have been doing since the 1600s. Boutiques and pubs line the thoroughfare and stay filled with visitors and locals for most of the day. Grab a seat and a pint to people-watch. Notice the architecture, a blend of historic 18th- and 19th-century facades with modern additions, such as the Dublin Spire. At the lower end of the street, you'll find a statue commemorating its namesake Daniel O'Connell, the famous nationalist.

  • O'Connell Street is the main street and another must visit in Dublin. On the avenue there are several important statues, that of the nationalist leader Daniel O'Connell, who gives the street its name. The Post Office of 1818 is another place worth knowing, although the most famous monument is The Spire, a 120-meter-high needle, which you can't miss.
