This is a lovely, well-kept park that provides a nice spot to relax in Dublin. The park has a nice tribute to Oscar Wilde and other historic locals. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

This park is a gem. Surrounded by elegant Georgian terraced properties, it is quieter than St Stephens Green, and has the bonus of Oscar Wilde's colourful statue, reclining on a rock and smirking at the world. Worth a few minutes of your time.

Much of Dublin has been modernized over the past century, but if you stroll down to Merrion Square, you can still get a peek at the "old Dublin" - and it's definitely worth the stroll. Loads of events happen within the square itself, but the...More
