    Must be the most beautiful park in all of Dublin! Really nice place to enjoy natural surrounds inside the city. The park is beautifully designed!

    Seriously, this is the most beautiful place I visited during my short time in Dublin. Everything has its place and the park is well thought out. The colors in this park are mesmerizing. Sometimes, there is a man who comes and talks to the ducks.

    Beautiful park situated in the heart of Dublin. Very well kept place. Highly recommend for a walk or lunch break.

    A welcome open space in the centre of Dublin. The area surrounding the Green is one of the best places to see Georgian architecture in Dublin.

    Lovely park to relax and unwind in - get a take away coffee or a sandwich and sit in the park watching the world go by.

    Attractive park just a few minutes from Grafton Street. A nice place to take a break from the city but no need to prioritize it if you are here for a short visit.

    You not have to be a fan of James Joyce or U2 (though I am) to enjoy this beautiful park. Peaceful oasis in the bustle of Dublin.

    Love St. Stephens's Green. A calm oasis right in the heart of Dublin's busiest shopping street. A great escape from the hustle and bustle and ideal for a picnic lunch on a fine day.

    A lovely park in the centre. Close by are the shopping areas at Stephen's Green Shopping centre, Dawson Street and Grafton Street, The Dail and museums in Kildare Street and Merrion Square and the Shelbourne Hotel. Take a picnic into the park in summer and share it with the ducks!

    I walked there during a beautiful march afternoon. It was sunny and not cold, and I really enjoyed the park. You see the real Dubliners life.

    St Stephen's Green park is in existence since 1664. This city centre public park is quite close to a busy shopping area, and provides a nice escape from the hustle & bustle of daily life in the city. If like "Bono" you one day are awarded freedom of the city, you are then accorded the right to graze sheep in the park.

    St. Stephen's Green is one of the nice parks in Dublin. There's a statue of Oscar Wilde here, and it looks nothing like Stephen Fry.

    The park is close to Grafton Street and Stephen's Green Shopping Center.

    I did a warm up run through here the day before the Dublin Marathon.

    Small, but beautiful park. I stayed across from it while in Dublin and found myself taking an extra 10 minutes or so each day to just wander through it. Like so much of the countryside in Ireland, it is extraordinarily lush and green.

    This park is really big! They even have deer there. You don't feel like there is a city anywhere anymore.

    great place to eat your lunch after a busy morning seeing the sites in Dublin. Stephen's Green shopping center is just next to this park, so you can continue your day immediately.

    Absolutely lovely park right next to the major shopping area. A great place to take a stroll, have a nice sit or people watch.

    I stopped here as part of a tour of the city, actually. It's a really serene place with a ton of history; it seems almost mystic, like a lot of Ireland. From what I can remember, this was the site (along with the nearby castle) of a rather bloody encounter, which (as I gathered during the tour) is pretty par-for-the-course in Ireland. Definitely worth a stop if you're walking around the city. I recommend it as a great place to nap on a lazy day in the city.

    Large beautiful park and gardens. James Joyce, Oscar Wilde & others are memorialized. Nondescript bench honoring Women of Magdalene Laundries broke my heart...

Description

This was once was a prime spot for watching public whippings, burnings and hangings. Today, it is a prime spot to take in some sun or meander through elegantly landscaped gardens. One of three ancient parks within the city, St. Stephen's Green is an important green space for residents. It boasts a meticulously maintained formal garden, with a special attraction of highly scented plants for the visually impaired. Throughout the beautiful grounds, you find statues and monuments created from granite and bronze. The park is framed by a major shopping district in Dublin and makes the perfect place to enjoy a rest from a day of browsing.
