Overview

This is the ultimate guide to St Stephen's Green Park; its history, its sculpture, and its Victorian landscape.

'The Green' has been at the centre of Dublin life for hundreds of years. It was occupied by rebels led by Countess Markievicz during the Easter Rising. It was where a young James Joyce met the man who would inspire Ulysses. It was where suffragettes met in 1918 before voting for the very first time in a General Election.

Narrated by Jack Murphy, who first walked through the Fusiliers Arch over seventy years ago, this unmissable audio tour takes you on a journey through the last three centuries of Dublin's cultural history.
