    Busy but peaceful
    The park was so busy me and my friend struggled to find a free bench, although they were everywhere. Despite the business, the park still felt very peaceful. Some beautiful flowers. Unfortunately lots of pigeons and seagulls, so beware if you don’t like birds

    Lovely spot for a stroll
    This is a lovely park in the heart of Dublin. Very convenient to get to via Luas, as there is a stop named for it. We had a lovely stroll in the rain one afternoon (we did everything in the rain, it's Ireland). We had a good time watching the ducks and just relaxing away from the people and traffic.

    Beautiful St Stephens Green.
    A beautiful park in the heart of Dublin. Be sure to take the time to read all of the interesting history along the park's trail that goes in to great detail about the Easter 1916 uprising. Just a beautiful place to unwind for an hour or so!

    Beautiful!
    We stayed at Stauntons on the Green for 2 nights, and cut through St. Stephen's Green often to get to the city center. The park was very clean and well-kept. It is extremely detailed but easy to navigate! We enjoyed every minute!

    A beautiful park
    St. Stephens Green is a beautiful park in Dublin. There are water features and walking paths, along with signs about the Irish revolution in the early 20th century. My wife and I also saw multiple statues.

    A beautiful oasis of green in the heart of Dublin.
    We stayed in Dublin for 4 nights and 5 days in mid-May, 2023. This park was in between our B&B and the city center, so we visited and walked through it every day. Very beautiful fresh air temporary escape from the madness of Dublin... we did enjoy the city but this place is wonderful. Ancient trees, birds and other wildlife abound here. The story of the Irish revolution against United Kingdom in 1916 is told in many plaques and statues located throughout the park. The battles were fought right here in the park and surrounding streets in 1916. The walking paths meander all around the park in several directions. On one side is a lake with plentiful waterfowl swimming about. There are plenty of benches located all over the park if you wish to sit and admire the surroundings or read a book. We loved this park!!

    Pleasant place to relax after sightseeing or shopping
    First visit to Dublin but very impressed with my walk around here. A nice place for a walk with plenty of places to relax whether on the grass or a shaded bench with a sandwich for lunch. Lots of gulls and pigeons though! Children’s play area and areas of water with wildfowl. Colourful flower beds. Relaxing after the hustle and bustle of the city.

    Historic and restful
    This green is a gem. It's busy with tourists and local workers passing through. It combines history with a breath of fresh air within the bustling city. I've come through it each day of my visit.

    "Must go and see"
    I grew up living just around the corner from St. Stephens Green, I've seen the dreary days when the weather is bad (which in Ireland is most of the time) and the times when it is bright and sunny and far too hot. But through it all, St. Stephens has remained and hopefully always will remain a wonderful park. Full of laughing gleeful children running around and playing on the playground to the sound of geese flying down at the pond.

    Very historical park
    With a surprising change to the weather we found ourself sitting in the sun in this beautiful park, with what seemed most of Dublin. Empty benches were hard to find. Plenty of statues and sign posts telling about a very important battle that took place there against the English making it s bit more than just a park and part of modern Irish history. Definitely worth a visit if you get the weather.

This is a nice park and is surrounded by shopping areas so it is a nice place to take a break. There are interesting historical statues as well as the an Irish Famine Memorial and I posted a picture of that.

Great little park close to the little museum of Dublin and the national archaeological museum. I particularly liked the details on the civil war scattered along the walk!

It is pretty small – maybe why they call it a green and not a park but it is beautiful. Lovely places to sit and read or people watch. Ancient trees that must have witnessed Ireland’s attempt to break England’s colonial yoke dot the landscape. As do dozens of plaques commerating the failed 1916 uprising. There is beautiful statuary, a bust of Joyce, a thank you from Germany after the war to Ireland (who remained neutral) for the care they provided German children, a lovely pond with dogs and geese, fountains, and areas for children to run and play. One of the great things about Ireland is how mild the winters are. The Gulf Stream runs right across the country keeping even December days comfortably in the 40’s and 50’s. The Green is a lovely place to sit, wander, read or drink a coffee. Don’t miss it.

Peaceful atmosphere with a fountain, lake and swans swimming in it. I recommend downloading the ‘ReidWalk’ App before visiting this park, they created specific soundtracks for walking across different parts of the park

Gorgeous experience and walk on our first day in Dublin! Highly recommend this for first time visitors. I was struck by the vibrant colors, especially striking during wintertime in Dublin. There is even a small playground for children, which was great as we were traveling with a small child. Very close to the Little Dublin Museum, so recommend a visit before or after. 10/10
