St Stephen’s Green

St Stephen’s Green is a beautiful historic park in the centre of Dublin. It’s a green and wooded break to the many instances of ornate, flanking Irish architecture. The stateliness of the district is matched by the beautiful lawns, carefully arranged flowers, graceful weeping willows and lime trees and idyllic pond. St Stephen’s combines perfectly the stateliness of a fine tended garden with the recreational casualness of the public park.

Photographed for 150 years, the park has been a stopping off point for visitors to Dublin for centuries. Pilgrims, merchants, visiting businesspeople and locals alike congregate between its verdant lawns and prim flowerbeds to wile away time beneath the sky. It is also home to many historic tributes, wherein events in Irish history such as the Great Famine and people such as Robert Emmet are commemorated in plaques and statues.
