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.
St Stephens Green reviews
The place has tracks that was wet. We nearly tripped on slippery walkways. Nothing of interest inside this park. It was a wet day we went there. more »
It was a wet afternoon with rain when we visited. We had no chance to enjoy what surely would be a good place. more »
St Stephens Green is like Central Park, but cooler. Smaller, less crowded and most importantly - Irish! more »
