With a reputation known worldwide, Dublin’s Grafton Street is the must-see destination for shopaholics and cultural enthusiasts visiting the city. The variety of retail outlets give you a ton of options, from department stores like Brown Thomas to shops such as Footlocker, Next, and Marks & Spencer.
After a day of shopping you might want to grab a bite to eat from one of the many fast food joints, restaurants, and cafes dotted around the area – or if you’re feeling lively, there are also a number of bars and clubs where you can get your night life on, and even a theatre where you can sample Dublin’s talented dramatists. You can find all this and more just a short 11-minute walk from Jurys Inn Christchurch.
Known for being the oldest and largest department store in Ireland, Arnotts is the destination of choice if you’re looking for a day of food, fun, and most importantly, retail therapy. Over 300,000 square feet, the store is home to all you could need in the way of fashion, jewellery, homeware, electrical goods and more.
After a long day of shopping, there’s a place to rest your feet and let your taste buds do the work with restaurants and cafes like Clodagh’s Kitchen, Bewley’s, and Homemade at Arnotts – we suggest sampling the full Irish breakfast before hitting the stores as it’s sure to give you enough energy for endless shopping! You can find Arnotts just a 4 minute walk from our hotel on Parnell Street.
