(3.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Stephen's Green Shopping Centre is a large indoor shopping centre located at the top of Grafton Street in the Southside of Dublin City. It is named after St. Stephen's Green, a nearby park (its street address is Stephens Green West).HistoryThe Dandelion Market, well known as the site of U2's earliest gigs and its array of stalls selling punk badges, clothes and posters was situated in the area the shopping centre now resides in. The site had been assembled over the years by the Slazanger family.The market, which closed in 1981, is commemorated with a plaque, while Sinnotts Bar on South King Street is the only part of the original site that remains. Work began on the St. Stephen's Green Shopping Centre in 1985, with the whole project taking three years to complete. The centre officially opened its doors on 8 November 1988.ShopsThe centre has over 100 outlets. Major franchises include Dunnes Stores, Boots, Gamestop and TK Maxx.

  • Stephen's shopping is a good place to have a break during your walk around in Dublin. We had coffee and cake at the top floor and went down at the food market in Dunne's store where we had a really ch...  more »
  • Although the time was limited, I saw nice shops with reasonable prices, with great variety, good quality, depending on the value.

  • Cool paintings and masks paying tribute to David Bowie on second floor! Also several shops to choose from for shopping in doors.

  • I love the layout. I keep looking up to the splendid great ceiling as I walk. Be careful not to bump into others who may also be looking upward! The prices are too much for me, not enough bargain places, overall poor value in my view. But I urge you to visit & make up your mind; the building alone is well worth the visit.
  • The shopping mall itself is fairly standard but the architecture is beautiful! Especially lovely to visit on a cloudy day, when all the diffused light filters through the large sky windows. You can get a good view of St. Stephen's park from the food court on the top floor.
  • Nice shopping center, ideally located at the end of Grafton Street, right next to the park. There are a lot of different stores in it, some definitely more interesting than others. You have to pay 50 cents for the bathrooms.
  • Everything you need. Dunnes Boots Argos TK Max Eason Perfume shop Beat etc etc
  • Just to view the construction it is worth visiting this place. Good shops, not very modern but a strange mix. Boots Dunne's Argos are main shops then others like barbers, Chinese medicine and a tattoo shop. :) go to top floor and have a coffee looking down at it all in perk on the green.
