Don't expect any fantastic features here. Also, don't go out of your way to visit this place. It's just a quiet park where you can rest and recharge yourself. What I like about it is that it's much quieter than Stephens Green. Also, on weekends, artists sell paintings around the outside perimeter.

I think the best way to describe this green is "peaceful". No lake here, nor playground for kids; instead beautiful flowers and large grass welcoming whoever want to relax laying there.

Close to St. Stephens Green, shopping and restaurants. If you like to "walk the city" on your tour or vacation - this is a worthy area to see.

I was in the area and happened to be near here when there was an arts fair/show on. Nice addition to an already great place.

Looks like a great place to take kids or to stroll and relax. Don't miss the Oscar Wilde "statue" or the war memorial.

Bit quieter than st stephens, great on a nice day (which it was for us) sit on the grass or even in the jokers chair (in memory of Dermot Morgan - Father Ted)

Merrion Square might seem to be the kid brother of St. Stephens Green, but it has its own charms. It is generally quieter and less busy - and only slightly smaller. On my two recent strolls there, people seem to come there more to visit rather than to just walk through and leave. It is much more a place of... More

A small, beautifully maintained green space in the centre of town. A good buzz on Sunday's when artists hang their paintings on the railings

The Merrion Square park is often considered secondary to the better Stephens Green Park, But I like it just a well. Have to stop by and See Oscar Wilde when you are there.

A pleasant, peaceful park, huge trees abound, close to the centre of the city, a good place to relax and reflect.
