Virtual Tour of St Stephens Green, Dublin, Ireland
 Traveler Reviews and Information
Lois Ronberg says:
"With so much to do in Dublin city, centred around shopping and site-seeing it is wonderful to take a short walk over Grafton Street and be in an oasis of calm - in St Stephens Green. In the mid 1600s land was set aside and in 1880 a focus was set on making a former marsh into a city park. The current park was started in 1880 and a city father, one of the Guinness family, funded the formation of the 22 acre (9 hectare) park. To mark the gratitude of the city there is now a statue of him in the park. It joins a myriad of memoriams including gates, memorial gardens, statues and busts to remember important and notable citizens over the generations. St Stephens Green is an attractive green belt in the heart of Dublin. It is beautiful for walking, picnics, feeding the ducks in the lake or cooling off under the many trees and always there are pretty flower plots to cheer up the most weary shopper. The day I went, I was busy photographing many interesting shots and I found a family feeding the ducks so asked if I could take a photo of the children - they agreed and invited me to have a morning cup of tea with them. How generous and memorable. At the 1887 bandstand you may well catch a free daily concert, be assured you’ll be sitting around with people from all over world, joining keen locals who have every right to be proud of this old, green and quiet part of Dublin city. Perhaps you just want to take time to look at your map and work out where to go next. I went to Dublin Castle and one of the two cathedrals nearby. That is the beauty of Dublin, you can walk around it or take the Hop on Hop Off Bus which I always do as there are always excellent commentaries - then afterwards I go and do some meandering to things which attract me on the tour.. The Dublin Information office is a short walk from St Stephens Green too so use this lovely park to catch your breath and then set off to things which interest you in vibrant, historic Dublin. "
Stephanie Acton says:
"Dublin is the perfect choice for a Valentine weekend. It's just got such a friendly atmosphere, great bars, great places to eat and great shopping."
Emma Hardy says:
"I loved Dublin did work experience there through college and got to live there for a month, there were plenty of sights to see and the pubs were great. I was luck enough to be there for St Patrick's Day and the parade and atmosphere was amazing. The Guiness Factory is a must see and the shopping is great. I would definitely go again."
