St. Stephen's Green, Dublin

4.6
#1 of 609 in Parks in Ireland
Made famous by writer James Joyce, St. Stephen's Green has been Dublin's favorite picnic spot for over a century. Opened in 1880, the park is adjacent to one of the city's major shopping streets, drawing equal numbers of nature lovers and shoppers in need of a place to rest. The largest of Dublin's Georgian gardens, this 9 hectare (22 acre) urban park once provided a marshy setting for public whippings and executions. Today, the elegantly landscaped garden features Georgian buildings and statues of some of Ireland's most celebrated figures, including Arthur Guinness, Robert Emmet, and W.B. Yeats. Located in the heart of Dublin, the park is accessible by tram from almost anywhere in the city. Find out how to plan Dublin trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • A great quiet place to take a stroll. A bit unkempt, but worth a visit. The swans and wildlife is pretty. Wedding photos taken in a gazebo area are always going on. But what I would say is the best pa...  more »
  • Great park with an exciting story from one of the many revolts against the British rule. It is recommended to go round (is a map at the northwestern entrance of numbers) and read about the Easter uprising in 1916. Just across the street on the north side of the Park is the little museum of Dublin where you can get a guided tour and learn even more about this and the Park's importance.

  • Walk on the way to the Aviva Stadium. It is a well-kept Park with an old air, i.e. no tile or you desparrames naff architects.

  • Beautiful place to visit, always very peaceful, even though it's right in the middle of the busy city but when your just sat there absorbing the beauty of this place, you feel peace and tranquility. Perfect spot on a summer's day out or just to visit for its beautiful landscape. Love going there for a nice lunch spot with your family or friends.
  • I love this park. There is pond filled with swans and birds. There is play area for kids. Benches for elder, grass for relaxing. If sunny day, worth spending some time here. Best part is that it is next to Grafton street so food and shopping is just few steps away
  • A fabulous oasis in the middle of the city. Close to shopping on Dawson and Grafton streets. Enjoy a stroll around at anytime of the day and you'll see so much wildlife, there are ducks swans seagulls and a local heron all here. Plenty of seating and grass to eat lunch or enjoy a rest on a fine day.
  • St Stephen's Green is a beautiful oasis that is extremely well situated beside Grafton and Dawson street. There are many different species of birds that are visible throughout the day on the large pond in the middle of garden. Overall I thought that this is an excellent oasis in the heart of Dublin for a walk.
  • It's nice to walk through on the way to work. Unfortunately, one sometimes sees a lot of homeless people congregating there. At night, they hide in the bushes until the gates have been locked. Apart from that, it's a very pleasant park with some attractive, big, old trees.
