#1 of 33 in Parks in Dublin
Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.

  • We stopped by the park to sit down and take in the view for a while. People watching is always great fun. The park was busy with visitors and the sun was shining. Shame some of the locals let it down with their behaviour. But its a great place to walk and rest.
  • Range of status, birds and ducks. You can feed them, children will enjoy the place. There is a playground for little kids. Loved it. Located near the shopping area. Definitely worth having a look at.
  • Such a lovely place to relax, have a picnic or just enjoy the sunny weather or your free time. Big green space full of historic information, family friendly and peaceful. Highly recommend.
  • Best place to chill with friends on a sunny day. Every now and then there is someone playing music in the green, or there is some sort of event in the gazebo. Its a popular meet-up place for large groups.
  • Great Park in the city. Sit down with a picnic lunch, and take a nice stroll along the many trails. Can be jammers on weekends when the sun is out!
