Antique Dublin park, Stephens Green images

Stephen's Green public park is located near the Shelbourne Hotel in central Dublin city & originally comprised of 27 acres. It had been public land until 1663 when the City Council closed public access & sold some of the property.   Sir Arthur Guinness, Member of Parliament & founder of the Guinness Brewery, proposed the bill which restored public access to Stephens Green in 1877. The park's ornamental gardens & fountains were laid out during the 1880's & were funded by Sir Arthur Guinness (Lord Ardilaun).
