We have divided the city centre area into a number of localised shopping areas, marked above. All the areas are within easy reach of eachother on foot. Move the mouse over each area for a brief description and click for further details.

Mainstream shopping is centered on the two main pedestrianised shopping areas of Grafton Street/Stephen's Green on the southside centre and Henry Street on the northside centre. The two streets are just either side of the river, a few minutes apart, but are quite different. Grafton Street, positioned between Trinity College on the north end and St Stephen's Green on the south end, is the more upmarket shopping area with flagship stores such as Brown Thomas, the department store catering for a myriad of designer showcases, both foreign and local. Dublin's largest and most exclusive jewellers, Weirs, is also here, as well as the most popular of the famous Bewley's Cafes. The street leads to the Stephen's Green Shopping Centre and the Powerscourt Townhouse Shopping Centre is nearby with the excellent Castlemarket area to the rear. The main bookstores are just around the corner on Dawson Street.

Henry Street has department stores such as the extensive Arnotts, and an assortment of popular clothing and footwear stores. The ILAC shopping centre is here, the newer Jervis Street Shopping Centre, and the famous outdoor food market of Moore Street is always bursting with bargains. The nearby O'Connell Street, Dublin's main thoroughfare, is sadly a shadow of its former self, but is home to the excellent Clery's Department Store and Eason's Booksellers.
