    St. Stephen's Green

    Definitely, St. Stephen’s is one of my favorite places of Dublin. Placed in the very center of the city, this park was originally owned by the Guinness family (yup, the guys that bring the beer that is good for you) the grounds had been used for public use since the late 19th century.

    Here you could enjoy your lunch (if you have the weather by your side) in a relaxed atmosphere, completely different of Dublin’s typical endless activity.

    St. Stephen's Green is a large park in downtown Dublin. It's probably one of the nicest city parks I've seen so far. The center of it is fairly wide open, with lots of meticulously maintained flower beds and paths, as well as a fountain in the center. The outer parts of the park are made up of several ponds that are home to lots of ducks, wooded alleys that circumscribe the entire park, gazebos, and are a number of very interesting sculptures.

    St. Stephen's Green lies in the heart of Dublin and is popular with Dubliners and visitors alike. The Green provides an oasis of peace in the bustling centre of Dublin. It was donated to the people of Dublin by Lord Ardilaun, a member of the Guinness Family

    Flower bed in St. Stephens Green

    At the top of Grafton street you'll find St. Stephen's Green, a glorious park bang in the city centre. They plant different flowers in summer and in winter so it's colourful year round and just generally a tranquil place to escape from the noisy city.

    Spend a few minutes in St Stephen's Green.
    This is a lovely park in the centre of Dublin. It is located at the south end of Grafton Street.
    It's a nice place to sit in the shade on a warm summer's day.

    ST. Stephen's Green, an Oasis in Dublin City

    Please do not miss St. Stephen's Green! It's a beautiful park; a little bit hidden in Old Dublin but it is worth trying to find it!, At first you will only see a huge stone arcade, but when you break through it you will discover a charming place...
    Small artificial lakes, fountains, flowers, bushes and trees make the place look beautiful, specially in Springtime, which I am sure it's the perfect season to enjoy the park most!

    A truly beautiful park. It's a nice place to sit and relax for a few minutes before diving back into the thick of the city! From what I've read, this was a private park until the 1800's when a member of the Guinness family helped in the push to make it a public area again.

    St Stephen's Green
    Dublin's most famous park is steeped in history. It started life as common ground, not far from a lepers' hospital, and was eventually enclosed in 1664. The site of public hangings throughout the 18th century, it was not until Lord Ardilaun's patronage in 1880 that the park took on the landscaped form that we see now.

    Memorials are dotted around the flower beds, trees and willow-fringed duck pond. James Joyce, Oscar Wilde and W.B. Yeats are just some of the famous names commemorated, while the Three Fates smugly measure the thread of humanity's destiny from their fountain at Leeson Street Gate. Free concerts are held on summer days in the bandstand.

    St. Stephen's Green in the heart of Dublin. Just a little oasis of calm when the weather is nice. You really can't hear the traffic thanks to all the trees.

    St. Stephens water fountain

    This is a wonderful water fountain at St. Stephens church. It was water lillies I think. It was quite unusual as I have never seen anything like this fountain, so I took a picture for your viewing.

    A nice park where the local office workers come to eat their lunch.
    It's at the end of Grafton Street and you can take a rest there after all the walking around the city..
