"Another gorgeous gift from the Guinness family" St. Stephen's Green Tip by Jefie
St. Stephen's Green, Dublin: 84 reviews and 179 photos
The creation of St. Stephen's Green dates back to 1664, when the space previously used as a common was enclosed to turn the area into Dublin's new high-end location. Access to the park used to be restricted to local residents, but it was opened to the public in 1877 and Lord Ardilaun, a member of the Guinness family, paid to have the green redesigned in 1880. A fountain, a lake, a bandstand and a variety of other landscaping elements were then added, as well as numerous monuments. Perhaps the most easy one to spot is the Fusilier's Arch, at the north corner of St. Stephen's Green. On a sunny day, students, workers and visitors gather around this area to have lunch and relax. Since our hotel was located right on the green, we had plenty of opportunities to explore the park and very much enjoyed the quiet atmosphere it afforded right at the heart of Dublin. A nice break from all the hustle & bustle of the city!
