Not the best of streets to be on of a Friday or Saturday night, lots of drunks just dying to chat to you/throw up nearby. The clubs aren't fantastic but are probably up there with the best Dublin has to offer!

A nice walk to do. Good restaurants and good neighborhood and good view. You'll pass through a canal to arrive in this st.

Part of beautiful Georgian Dublin, excellent for photography and surrounding streets. Seedy overpriced Nightclubs at night time. Don't go there! Daytime for tourists is fine.
