Oscar Wilde Statue in a beautiful green space

This is a lovely quiet green park with children playing and locals relaxing. The Oscar Wilde statue is the most notable thing in the park.

This was our second park visited in Dublin, and I strongly preferred this to St. Stephen's Green. Perhaps it's just a little bit more off the beaten path, but it was much less crowded. It was also completely adorable. Great spot to sit a moment and relax, read, or have a picnic. Great statue of Oscar Wilde. This spot is... More

A beautiful well kept public garden in Dublin's city center. It is beside the National Gallery and the Dáil (Parliment). Don't miss the Oscar Wilde statue.

If you are a tourist it deserves a visit to see the Oscar Wild statue and walk around this small city park. It was a playground for children and some places where you can seat and relax. Although it is central is not too touristic specially during week days.

Very neat and quiet park in the middle of the city with plenty of hidden gems with statues and sculptures e.g. Oscar Wilde's. It is surroundered by cool Georgian houses. Definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a nice place to have picnic, read of a book or just to escape the hustle of the city.

Worth wandering in if you go past but it's nothing special. Artists do display their craft on the rails surrounding on weekends

We visited Merrion Square to see the Oscar Wilde statue, but were very surprised at the lush park area inside. After much hustle and bustle touring Dublin, it was nice to stroll along the paths and sit for a while to "people watch" on the park benches. There was children's play equipment for kids of all ages.

This park is well situated, near the city centre and just a few minutes walking from the Pearse Dart Station. Still, it's relatively hidden among the buildings and usually offers a quiet and relaxing retreat from the busy city life. There are a few things to do here: * On nice days, the park is used by locals and tourists... More
