As the summer holiday season approaches, many people will be planning their yearly or biannual getaways with excitement. Whether you're anticipating a week in the Majorcan sun or are looking forward to three weeks of travelling around in Thailand, your summer holiday is sure to bring out the travel guru in you.

There are plenty of European destinations that are easy to travel to and will provide excellent day trips for you, your family and your friends.

Like many major cities, Dublin is split into two halves by a river - in this case, the River Liffey. On the north side of Dublin, you'll find O'Connell Street, the main thoroughfare through which a number of shopping streets, including Henry Street and Talbot Street, intersect. On Dublin's south side, visitors will find St. Stephen's Green, the stunning buildings of Trinity College, Christ Church Cathedral (which dates back to the eleventh century) and a host of other beautiful attractions.

On a day trip to Dublin, you could check out some of the best museums, art galleries and monuments in Ireland, including the National Museum of Ireland, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin Castle and the National Botanic Gardens. Alternatively, visit Phoenix Park, the second largest city park in Europe; Phoenix Park includes a Polo field and Dublin Zoo, and is also home to the residences of the Irish President and the US Ambassador to Ireland.

Grafton Street is Dublin's most fashionable and pedestrianised shopping street. Named after the Duke of Grafton, it was pedestrianised in the 1970's and is quite short in length. You can stroll its length in approximately five minutes, but you will be captivated by the atmosphere and the buzz! You'll probably spend a lot longer here than intended wandering in and out of high street stores, select designer boutiques, exclusive jewellers and watch out for those talented buskers! You might catch the next U2, Glen Hansard or Damien Rice in action! Afterwards you can grab a bite to eat in one of the trendy restaurants and cafes.

 

Grafton Street is home to some of Dublin's most popular stores, including Marks and Spencer's, Brown Thomas, BT2, Vero Moda, Oasis, Next and River Island. Upmarket stores like Laura Ashley and Monsoon are also located here. Other nearby retail outlets include the Stephens Green Shopping Centre, the Powerscourt Shopping Centre and the Westbury Mall.

 

For music collectors, the former Woolworths building is now home to HMV where you'll find an extensive music library of performers past and present! Book enthusiasts can avidly browse Hughes & Hughes and The Dublin Bookshop in the Stephens Green Centre. Weirs Jewellers have a fabulous range of jewellery for the diamond collector! Note that most of the shops in and around Grafton Street open late on Thursdays.

The best advice to give about Grafton Street is to take a stroll, browse and shop and then chill out with a bite to eat and a drink. Bewleys Oriental Cafe has long been a recommended place to dine - esteemed writer James Joyce used to frequent Bewleys.
