St Stephen's Green Tours

Opened in 1880 as a grand Georgian park to be enjoyed by the people of Dublin, on sunny summer days St Stephen’s Green gets packed with families and groups of friends relaxing by the lake. 

A walk around the 22-acre park is like a mini lesson on Irish history’s most celebrated figures. Fittingly for a park that was funded by the Guinness fortune, the grandest statue of all is that of Arthur Guinness. Look out for the bust of James Joyce by the bandstand, and in the northeast corner of the park, see Edward Delaney’s bronze memorial of the Great Famine of 1845-1850. By the central flower display, see the park bench where a modest plaque is dedicated to Dublin’s so-called ‘fallen women’ who were forced to work in the city’s Magdalene laundries.

Surrounded by elegant Georgian buildings, St Stephen’s Green wasn’t always so impressive—this was once a dangerous, marshy common that hosted public whippings, burnings and even hangings right up until the 18th century. 

The main entrance to the park is through Fusiliers’ Arch, at the top of lively Grafton Street, which was erected in 1907 as a memorial to the 202 Royal Dublin Fusiliers who were killed while fighting for the British in the Second Boer War.

Practical Info

In the heart of Dublin, St Stephen’s Green is open all year. To get there, take the tram to the St Stephen’s Green stop.
