Grafton Street

Interesting
The most elegant of Dublin's shopping streets is now a pedestrian precinct. In the 19C it was paved with pine blocks to soften the noise of the carriage wheels. Bewley's Oriental Café with its mosaic façade and stained glass windows by Henry Clarke was opened in 1927; the obsolete equipment exhibited on the upper floor give a glimpse of developments in the profession since the 1840s.
