Lovely Park near The Shelbourne Hotel

What a nice quiet park to walk through in the heart of bustling Dublin. The flowered & manicured landscapes are beautiful. Swans & ducks add to the serenity on lovely lake.

Very nice park in the middle of the town, not far from all the interesting places in the city. It contains small lakes, places to sit and enjoy the silence, flowers and birds are everywhere. It's a place to relax and gather new energy while touring around.

This is a quiet place in the middle of a very busy city. Certainly it's a place to walk around and think about the many twists and turns in Irish history. You might like to take a book of Yates or Joyce and sit quietly and listen... you will be surprised what you hear.

This park was a pleasant way to circumnavigate a few city blocks out of sight of heaviy road traffic. Benches are available to those with the time to dawdle or enjoy a picnic lunch picked up at Marks and Spencer on Grafton Street.

We were lucky enough to have our hotel within a couple of blocks of St. Stephen's Green and each visit was enjoyable. The gardens and the statuary are lovely, as was the quiet. There is a lovely pond with birds and a bandstand, as well as a stone bridge that made for great photos. Each day we'd stop and say... More

This place is a really good place to take photos. Take them in front of the lake, flowers, trees, fountain or statues. I was very pleased that we took time to walk around Stephens Greens! Beautiful area!

A lovely space in the Dublin city area. Great to relax. The Green was provided under funding from the Guinness family (they touch pretty much everything in Dublin)

Nothing great about this park, nothing bad either. Seems like there's always a ton of people. It was smaller than I anticipated.

Lovely green space. We watched two older gentlemen feeding the birds. One was using his arms for perches.

Magnificent public park right at the heart of the city. Big open spaces and plenty of room to put down a blanket for a nice romantic picnic.
