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.
Check out the park in the middle of the city with it beautiful ponds and flowers.
Perfect during the lunch hours for a relaxing quite break.
This beautiful arch give to everyone the welcome to St Stephen green. In my opinion is a great welcome to the most beautiful park I have ever seen.
St. Stephen's Green is a very nice park which has a fountain, a lake, pavilions and several statues of famous people from Dublin.
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.
This beautiful lodge at the edge of Harcourt Street reminds of Lord Ardilaun,a member of the Guinness-family, who donated money for the creation of St. Stephen's Green in 1880.
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..
