This is a very odd sculpture. Wilde was at least six foot and a boxer - this presents him as fey and whimsical (and looking a lot like Alan Rickman). It’s just bizarre. The one outside Kennedy’s pub seems more realistic…

Located within the lovely gardens of Merrion park, is this lovely statue, that the sculptor has captured the essence of the man.

I don't understand why this monument isn't more popular or why more people aren't losing their minds when they see it. Have you ever seen a statue so outrageous and more indicative of a person's personality?

The man is laying there in the most sensual position I have ever seen a person lay in. The marble is smooth and refined, the colours are bright and captivating, and don't even get me started on the expression on his face - It's as if he's begging you to join him up on that rock.

I unfortunately do not know the sculptor, but I would love to shake their hand. This is one of the most unique works I have had the pleasure of discovering and I will be glad to return when I come back to Dublin.

The Oscar Wilde statue is a must visit while in Dublin. It is located in Merrion Square Park and is one of the stops in th Big Bus tour.

The statue captures his personality. Oscar Wilde lounges in a relaxed position on a boulder. I love his expression. The statue stands out because it is different from most statues. His clothing ihas different colors due to a variety of materials used - this makes it even more interesting.

Color needs to be touched up but otherwise a nice monument in a lovely park. It really does look like Oscar Wilde. The only problem is finding said park.

I really think this statute of Oscar Wilde really captures the individual that he was. Laying out on holders in the corner of Merrion Square.

The monument is in-craved in a big rock in a corner of the Merrion Square Park in Dublin. It is easy to miss. Great stop to the Oscar Wilde author admirers.

Informal, colourful, fitting tribute to Oscar Wilde. Queues build up for photo opportunity but well worth it when out walking. Nice location, easy to find.

In St Stephens Park this 20th century depiction of the famous man is a little to modern in appearance. But at least it is a tribute to him.
