“A green haven in a busy city.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

People skirt around St. Stephen green all the time without really getting it. It is a great place to people watch, read, feed the ducks, or just kick back for a few minutes. Park gardeners do a fantastic job all year round. Very good playground and super on a winters day. I have fond memories of the park from 60s up to the naughties!

“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Great place to relax, feed or watch the ducks and swans or eat lunch. The fountains are pretty and the gardens are well kept.

“Wonderful park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is the largest park smack in the centre of Dublin and it is a great spot just to chill out. Buy a picnic lunch and find a quiet spot to eat it and listen to the bird song. If you can find the Henry Moore sculpture erected to honour the centenary of WB Yeats birth but it is tucked away just off the centre circle of the park.

“a lovely, small city park but could do more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

having visited Dublin a few times i always have a walk round St Stephen's Green, the building surrounding it are nice, and a few interesting places to see. The park itself is loveley but not a lot going on for the tourists, and it closes too early.

“Lovely gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Lovely gardens well maintained. Nice to walk through, ducks to feed and squirrels to watch out for. O'Donoghues Bar and St Stephens Green shopping Centre are very close by
