Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Leinster / County Dublin / Dublin / St. Stephen's Green
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. Find out how to plan Dublin trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

St. Stephen's Green Reviews
City park, very well taken care of. Nice, urban and relaxing. A great place to visit after the hustle and bustle of the shopping on Grafton street. more »
Walked the entire park this morning. While the Sycamore trees are starting to drop their leaves the grounds crew works hard to keep them off of the lawns. It is a beautiful setting and very peaceful. ... more »
Really enjoyed my time in Dublin and this place was one of its highlights. Really nice park full of green and life. Went for the sunrise and was definitely worth the early morning. A great place for photos especially were the bridge is. It's also a nice place for some quite time and for walking. Overall a Great place. The park does close during the night but it opens early in the morning.
Great park in the heart of Dublin. It has a walking history of the revolutionary fight around the park during the uprising battle. The park is designed to look like it did in the late 1800s. Its full of ponds, old Irish bridges and walkways, and several birds. There are many different places to relax and is a scenic way to cut across town.
