Park · Nature / Park
Made famous by writer James Joyce, St Stephens 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 well imagined and maintained Park that is a joy to visit. A good approach is walking across from the southern end of Grafton Street through the imposing Fusiliers Arch memorial.  more »

  • Our mini Central Park in Dublin City and it is similar in many ways except, no road runs through our St Stephens Green. It is an Oasis of peace and tranquility in a normally busy city. Our best know.....  more »

  • Wonderful oasis and place of relaxation. It is beautifully maintained. On occasion there is a band. The statues are of great Irish women and men. In season there are beautiful flowers. There are ducks in the pond.
  • Beautiful Green in the middle of the city. Very enjoyable place to walk around and see the very well maintained flowers and trees. You may even get chased my a herring gull. Plenty of benches to sit and relax or people watch or even read a book. Absolutely stunning on a sunny day. Well worth a visit
  • This is a hidden gem of a park within Dublin City Centre. The park has water features, green areas, shelter and more. The informational signs around the permitted of the park were very interesting to follow and you can learn a lot about a very local piece of history by reading them in order as you stroll around the park. The park also has a number of statues and monuments. A pleasant place to relax.
  • What a beautiful place! Wish we had some more time to spend in this park. It is so beautiful and rich in history. We had about 45min and it was definitely not enough time to walk through the entire park and ready all the statues and history boards. I will definitely recommend this to any tourist and also to make sure to keep a few hours open for this one. This was def part of my top 5 experiences for my Dublin trip.
  • Bad time of the year for a walk in the park, but we caught some winter sunshine and had a pleasant time with the children, in the play area, walking through the gardens, being with the enormous gulls close up, and mixed with so many nationalities from all over the world. It was unseasonably warm. A small hint of the upcoming spring.
