This is a lovely place to chill out and have a few quiet minutes to yourself in the middle of the city. There are some statues including the famous multi-coloured one of Oscar Wilde. There are seats and lots of grassy areas for the warmer days.

Entered to see the Oscar Wilde statue and was delighted with every square inch. Good break for adults or take the kids for the playground.

We were on a walking tour of Dublin and visited this park which is very nice. Look for the Oscar Wilde Statue located atop a large rock. It is near the corner of the park that is close to the Oscar Wilde Home.

Almost missed it. That would've been too bad. Loved it even on an overcast winter day. Even smelled great. Stroll through. You should! Stop and picnic if you have the time

We were out walking in Dublin heading to The Brookwood for our tea. This is a very nice park to walk around. Very relaxing. Statue there of Oscar Wilde. Nice refreshing fresh air in a well kept park. Across the road are the offices of The prime minister and National Museum.

I love Merrion Square. It's smaller and less busy than St Stephen's Green, but everything you want in a city park - green, relaxing, places to sit, surrounded by beautiful buildings, close to places you might be visiting and need a break before or after (the National Gallery for instance), and there's good old Oscar to hang with and hope...

His statue is in the park! Lovely, large green square with pathways throughout. We were lucky enough to stay nearby so walked by it at least twice a day during our stay. I can only imagine how nice it woukd be to visit during the summer!

Thank Etchbee
