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.

  • Beautiful park in the heart of Dublin city. Great place to go in the summer after you've grabbed some take out from nearby. Sometimes there's bands playing on weekdays at lunchtime and even in the Autumn and Winter it's a lovely place to pass through on the way through city.
  • Is the best place un ireland. Thz
  • It is an ok shopping center with a few good stores and many mediocre to low level ones. Worth mentioning you'll find here: Dunnes, Argos, TkMax, Tiger. You won't find Tesco. There is also an ok food court. Toilets, located at the top floor are not for free.
