St. Stephen’s Square,
Dublin 2

Built in 1664 is St. Stephen’s Green, a public park situated in the city centre which has become a popular place to relax and escape the city stress. The original garden was redesigned in the 19th century, and today many tourists visit it to see the artificial lake and bridge, the fountain, the monument of James Joyce and the famous Famine Memorial statue in memory of the Great Irish Famine. It also has some of the oldest Victorian-style monuments in the city.

There are various entrances to the park via St. Stephen’s Square. The main entrance is opposite Grafton Street and there is a famous arch called The Fusilier’s which leads to the park. The arch was built in honour of the soldiers who were killed during the Second World War.
