St. Stephen's Green, Dublin
(4.6/5 based on 9,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Make St. Stephen's Green a part of your Dublin vacation plans using our Dublin trip builder.

  • If you are in the area, it's a beautiful park to walk through or just to have a seat and rest your feet. 
  • Great Park in the Centre of dublin. It's good for lunch in connection with nature or just lie in the grass enjoying a bit of nature.

  • I love this park!! It is really close to the city center so if you are feeling overwhelmed or just need a break this is a great place to sit back and have a cup of coffee.

  • Very nice, friendly and familiar place to go for a run or just walk by to admire its nature all around. There you can find playground for children, safe and in good conditions, ideally to spend some time with your kid. Plenty of space for run and well located too. Definitely recommend it.
  • Well maintained and beautiful location. Excellent place to play Pokemon GO without being run over by automobiles. Suffers from an excessive number of seagulls. When feeding the ducks and swans in the area remember not to give them bread. Instead feed them bitesized chunks of fruits and vegetables.
  • Lovely peaceful park. I found the information boards very interesting but it opens quite late on a Sunday morning and has lots of locked gates
  • Always love the green. It's a golden oldie. It doesn't have the hottest shops but it does have some decent ones and looks magical at Christmas
  • One of the nicest places in the city. Family friendly, well equipped playground for kids, in an inconspicous area on the eastern side.
