Take a break and a breather; explore the park.

An urban park in the midst of the city, St. Stephen’s Green is a prime place to picnic, stroll, and people-watch.

The shady park contains an ornamental lake, benches, monuments and sculpture (including a piece by Henry Moore). There is also a garden dedicated to Irish poet W.B.Yeats, and throughout St. Stephen’s Green flowers bloom resplendently in spring and summer.

The Shelbourne Hotel is located on the north side of the Stephen’s Green. Its trendy No. 27 Bar and Lounge faces the park directly and also features paintings of the Dublin greensward.

Stephen's Green Shopping Center, which has about 100 shops and a food court, is across from Fusilier's Arch, the park's stately west side entrance.
