We were staying just around the corner from the sq, and stumbled on it during a walk, we have become appreciative of public green spaces in cities as there are many countries that dont have them.

This large Square is great to wander through. Many interesting trees, shrubs and flower beds with a visit to the corner devoted to Wilde a must.

Our family loves this place! We go here very often and it's such a wonderful and peaceful little park to walk around and let your children breathe some fresh air! It's very clean and maintained very well. The Oscar Wilde statue surely attracts many international tourists! Something to see while you're in Dublin city.

Sundays 10 to 5 the art work is hanging on the railings, weather permitting..and what a range! Apart from the park within! A great way to kick off Sunday mornings with a stroll here.

This is a nice park to go to for some peace and quite in the city and there is a playground for children. This park is nicer than St Stevens Green but St Stevens Green is also worth a visit.
