St. Stephen's Green

A short distance south of the city centre sits St Stephens Green, formerly a common land first enclosed in 1663.

The gardens (22 acres-9ha), a beautiful combination of water, flower beds and lawn, was laid in 1880 by Lord Ardilaun, whose statue is situated on the west side of the green.

A bronze sculpture by Henry Moore was erected in memory of poet W.B. Yeats in 1967
