Luckily the architectural assassins never managed to get their hands on the properties here. This is one of those most beautiful parts of what is left of Georgian Dublin. In the centre there is a nice park and you can walk around the railings of the park admiring the fine Georgian architecture. When you have finished that you can then... More

Loved the whimsical look on this iconic poet's statue. The surrounding park is beautiful with several more sculptures.

We were staying at the hotel adjacent to Merrion Square. We enjoyed walking across the street and enjoying this little retreat. It was situated right next to a hop on/hop off area. The area around the park was equally beautiful.

Loved the open fields with beautiful flowers, combined with the wooded paths with old statues and benches. Definitely head here on Thursdays at lunch time for the variety of local food vendors and live music.

We stayed at Hotel O'Callaghan Davenport Hotel 2 nights & enjoyed the short walk to this "Beautiful Green Space", did a lot of walking in this area! Merrion Square is an oasis in midst of a huge city! The trees, shrubs & beautiful flowers were breath taking! I was raised as a farm girl & enjoy "soaking up" nature's beauty... More

Georgian Dublin is just stunning. There are some beautiful buildings surrounding the square, including the Taoiseach's offices. Inside, the square feels like you are escaping the city. Be sure to grab a coffee or pack a lunch for a relaxing time in the park.

So many people to watch. Very nice grounds, trees and shrubs with flowers all kept so perfect. Very enjoyable during the day, with a relaxed atmosphere.

What a beautiful and lovely park with a great location (near to Trinity College and St Stephen's Green). Well kept and maybe a bit more quiet and peaceful than St Stephen's Green. Statue of Oscar Wilde in North-West corner. Be sure to also check out the stone pillars full of Oscar Wilde quotes (situated next to the statue).
