Dublin - Grafton Street & St Stephen's Green (PDF Chapter)
This is the Grafton Street & St Stephen’s Green chapter from Lonely Planet’s Dublin guidebook.
Grafton St and its surrounding precinct are a flexible feast of activities and sights, but it’ll take you two days to even begin to do them justice – and much longer to get to the heart of this part of the city.
- bask quietly in the aesthetic glow of the magnificent collection at Chester Beatty Library, one of the finest museums in Ireland
- stare in wonderment at the colourful pages of the Book of Kells, the world’s most famous illuminated gospel, before visiting the Old Library’s majestic Long Room.
- enjoy a sunny, summer afternoon on the grass of St Stephen’s Green, where Dubliners come to rest, romance and remind themselves of what makes life worth living
- restaurants & accommodation
