Opened in 1988, the iconic Stephen’s Green was the first premium shopping centre built in Ireland. An original and imaginative architectural gem, the centre’s glass dome, orange brickwork and glass and iron structure calls to mind older, more historical buildings, while allowing it to blend in perfectly with its beautiful Victorian and Georgian surroundings. Situated in the heart of Dublin’s most prestigious shopping and cultural quarter, this attractive Dublin landmark can be found at the top of the famous Grafton Street, and directly opposite the beautifully idyllic St. Stephen’s Green Park. The architectural uniqueness of Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre continues inside, with well laid-out modern stores, kiosks and galleries spread across three substantial floors, and all surveyed by Ireland’s largest clock.
Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre houses a wide variety of retailers, including anchor tenants Dunnes Stores, Argos, Boots, Golden Discs, United Colors of Benetton, TK Maxx and Eason. Moreover, leading home grown retailers, such as Best Menswear, Kingsize and Tribe carry all the premium names and brands found in any of the top European shopping destinations. Stephen’s Green also caters to those with slightly more eclectic tastes, with stores such as Asha, House of Japan, and Retro Nation stocking everything from Goth fashions to quirky gifts. A one stop shopping destination for tourists, overseas visitors can find all types of high-end gifts and souvenirs at a variety of Irish craft stores, including The Donegal Shop, Carroll’s Irish Gifts , Celtic Spirit and Tipperary Crystal. For those looking to take a break from shopping or sightseeing, Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre also has a huge variety of top quality cafes, bars and restaurants to suit every type of taste.
