O'Connell Street in Dublin is one of the most famous spots to stroll. It is lined with shopping, restaurants, pubs and statues to check out. The Sphere is located here. We heard a bit of the history behind this on our walking tour.

Coming up to chrissie the city has a real buzz/vibe about it. People everywhere, this street just adds to the vibe, a big main thoroughfare, with beautiful buildings, be sure to visit the GPO (genral post office), with its grand interior.

O'Connell Street is Dublin's main street; thanks to the bridge that spans the Liffey, it links North and South Dublin together. A plethora of fine sights, restaurants, hotels and shopping line the street - it's safe, welcoming, and has just the right mix of everything....More
