Arthur Edward Guinness, 1st Baron Ardilaun (1 November 1840 – 20 January 1915) was an Irish businessman, politician, and philanthropist, best known for giving St Stephen's Green to the people of Dublin.

 

Born at St Anne's, Raheny, near Dublin,[1] the fourth Arthur was the great-grandson of the original Arthur Guinness. He was the eldest son of Sir Benjamin Guinness, 1st Baronet, and elder brother of Edward Cecil Guinness, 1st Earl of Iveagh. He was educated at Eton and Trinity College Dublin, and in 1868 succeeded his father as second Baronet. In 1871 he married Olivia Hedges-White, daughter of the Earl of Bantry whose family home is Bantry House in County Cork; this was a happy but childless marriage.
