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. Examples of other, more independent shops include the gothic and alternative clothes shop Asha, the novelty gift store the Banana Tree, leading Irish men's branded fashion clothing store 'Counterpropaganda' and the wrestling devoted shop Wrestling Mania.

  • A mish mash of everything but firendly older arcade. There is a pharmacy which my friend was looking for and the staff were very helpful. 
  • A large very pretty indoor mall right by Grafton Street. There is a good variety of stores - both traditional mall type stores plus souvenir shops. There is also a nice selection of various food shops...  read more »
  • Pretty shopping centre. Light and airy. This does better as tourist destination than a day to day shopping destination. The Dunnes is aiming to be a flag ship store, so doesn't do much in the way of basics. But it is beautiful. They also have an excellent cheesemonger in the basement for alfresco picnics in the park next door though.. There is a cafeteria style eating area down one end, and a couple more coffee shops dotted about. Be warned rhe O'Briens always shuts well before the centre.
  • This shopping centre as a whole is ok. It is in a great location just off the top of Grafton Street. It has good facilities which includes a full food lounge area with lots of different resteraunts/cafes. It is connected to a Q Park car park with lots of parking spaces. (This parking can be quite expensive though so you may want to keep your visit short) There is elevators to all levels, allowing for wheelchair accessability to all levels of the centre. There is a quite a few mainstream shops in this centre and quite a few other alternative shops to match. But one pet peev I have is that you are charged to use the tolilet. I just find this quite irritating. It's only 20cent but still just the point, when in lots / most shopping centres you are not charged to use the toilet. Kind of find as there is quite a few levels that the centre is harder to navigate and find certain stores, which are concealed by corridors down the sides of the the centre. Worth a visit eitherway.
  • Big nice looking shopping centre. Worth to get inside and have a look as it's nice architecture point. Not yah good for shopping. Bit random stores, no reasonable food. I pop up there only for TK max and boots, sometimes toilet (they charge 50c€)
  • A very strange looking shopping center with a few decent shops - TK Maxx, United colors of Benet on, dunnes, argos....and a whole lot of other random stores. There's a Tiger at the center (Danish dollar store) as well. Bathroom is upstairs but getting down and up isn't so handy in the building.
  • My favourite shopping centre in dublin! Every year when i come back to dublin it's the first place where i wanna go. Good shops and bars, and of course the best 99's in the whole Dublin!!
