The energetic vibe that is Dublin city is almost palpable in this colorful image. This is Grafton Street, one of the main shopping streets in Dublin city centre. It runs from Saint Stephen's Green in the south to College Green in the north. Grafton Street is said to be one of the most expensive main shopping streets in the world, and is a destination for tourists and locals alike. Buskers, including musicians, poets and mimes can be found performing to the shopping crowds at all hours of the day and night.
The street was named after the illegitimate son of Charles II of England, Henry FitzRoy, 1st Duke of Grafton, who owned land in the area. It has grown from a residential area to a business street, and finally to a Dublin landmark.
