A leisurely stroll down the outside perimeter of Merion Square, turned out to be an excellent way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon in Dublin. Many local artists display their wares on/against the iron railings of the park, and they are fun to engage with! I loved seeing what was on display - the pries were reasonable , Paul Ryan's...

If you are visiting Dublin, you would not be going to wrong to spend an hour or so here, it is just so nice, beautiful setting, all Georgian and old school, then loads of paintings hanging off a fence of the ornate gardens, really pretty, especially with all the paintings up too.

I believe over 200 artists now display their works for sale along the fencing outside Merrion Square on the weekend. If there is good weather for a leisurely stroll on a weekend you can't beat this opportunity to interface with Irish artists. Most are very friendly and prices quite reasonable. Many are geared toward the tourists' need to buy something... More

Local artists display their works on the fence surrounding Merrion Square on the weekends. It is a great way to spend a leisurely hour at a beautiful location. Had a wonderful time with a local landscape watercolor artist, Betty McCormack.

Loved this slice of Sunday morning heaven. Beautiful art all around, wish I had the money to invest in the Louise Mansfield pieces-kids loved it too, especially the 3D art
