This is a lovely greenspace in an interesting part of Dublin. There are paths, trees, shrubs, flowers, a playground, and more. But the highlight for me was the statue of Oscar Wilde -- very quirky and fun! This is a good park for a stroll or picnic. The Hop-on/Hop-off buses stop right outside the park, so there is no excuse... More

Merrion is a sweet, charming, small park in Dublin. I loved it for its tall trees and shadows. Good place for a walk on a hot summer day and have lunch.

Merrion Square is probably my most favorite place in Dublin. Houses on this square have interesting history with notable residents. Oscar Wilde lived as a child at 1 Merrion Square, where Bram Stoker also spent a lot of time attending Lady Wilde’s salons, while W. B. Yeats lived at No 82, and Daniel O’Connell at No 58. Walk along Georgian... More

while the main attraction is the Oscar Wilde monument, this does not mean you cannot stop and look around. the houses are very English-like and royal, in their own way, but they also provide one of the Dublin's best treasures: the doors! some of the prettiest doors in Dublin are around this area, if you decide to walk around a...

Beautiful and tranquil spot in Dublin. On a rare and dry sunny day, it's ideal for a walk and some quietude.
