St. Stephen's Green Tours

star-3.5
46 Reviews
St. Stephen's Green
Once a common used for sheep grazing and public executions, St. Stephen’s Green became public park in 1877. This popular 22-acre (9-hectare) park offers benches and green lawns for relaxing, beautiful flower beds, a lake full of ducks, children’s playgrounds, and busts of prominent Irish historical figures.
 
The Basics
On sunny days, St. Stephen’s Green is a popular spot for Dubliners and visitors to hang out. For tourists, the park is a pleasant place to rest between bouts of sightseeing or shopping on nearby Grafton Street. Many hop-on hop-off bus tours stop near the park entrance, while walking, bike, and amphibious vehicle tours often pass by the park en route to nearby tourist attractions such as Trinity College and Dublin Castle. 
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • St. Stephen’s Green is a refuge for tired sightseers.
  • The park features two children’s playgrounds, and a Garden for the Blind with tactile aromatic plants and braille signage.
  • The park’s paved paths are accessible to wheelchair and stroller users.
  • The nearby Little Museum of Dublin hosts walking tours of the park every Saturday and Sunday morning.
 
How to Get There
Fusiliers’ Arch, the main entrance to St. Stephen’s Green, is situated at the south end of Grafton Street, a busy pedestrian shopping area. To get there, ride the Green Line Luas tram to the St. Stephen’s Green stop.
 
When to Get There
The park is open to the public year-round from morning until dusk. It’s best enjoyed when the weather is warm and dry, though it is more crowded on sunny days. Go in the early morning to see the park at its most tranquil. 
 
What to See in the Park
The park is dotted with monuments and sculptures of famous figures from Irish history. Look for a bust of Ulysses author James Joyce, and a bronze statue of Constance Markievicz, an Irish nationalist politician and suffragette. Lord Ardilaun, better known as Sir Arthur Guinness, the man responsible for opening up St. Stephen’s Green to the public, is also remembered with a memorial statue at the west side of the park.
