Dublin’s most famous shopping street is a combination of big chains, chichi department stores, and little shops. It’s as pricey as in any big city—although bargains can be found. It’s also a popular site for street performers, so you’re almost guaranteed an impromptu show on a sunny day. There’s an irresistible photo op to be found at the junction with Sloane Street, in the form of a life-sized bronze statue of poor, doomed Molly Malone. Unveiled in 1987, it raised a few eyebrows due to Molly’s somewhat revealing décolletage. With typical dryness, locals swiftly nicknamed it “the Tart with the Cart.”
