About these ratings

This beautiful park (known for remaining green throughout the year) is a great place to spend a day outside without leaving central Dublin. However, it wasn't always so pleasant: during the Middle Ages and up until the mid-17th century, this 27-acre park was used as the site for public punishment. In 1880, the park was purchased by Sir Arthur Guinness (yes, those Guinnesses) and then transformed into a more agreeable space. According to one TripAdvisor user, "Young and old, with kids, young couples, people reading books, you name it. It feels very romantic here, and there are a lot of ducks and other animals as well." While on a leisurely stroll, keep your eyes out for the many memorials dedicated to Ireland's greats, including James Joyce, Henry Moore and W. B. Yeats.

St. Stephen's Green is open every day from sunrise to sunset. There is no entrance fee.
