Easy to miss! I a corner stone
Sep 2019
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
Jan 2020 • Couples
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.

Unique
Nov 2019
This is one of the most unique statues I have ever seen, and although I am not a reader of Oscar Wilde, it probably sums him up nicely. There is also an information board nearby which can be easily missed.

Unusual tribute
Oct 2019
Most statues depict famous people in stiff formal poses. Nobody can say this is a formal statue but it is a fitting tribute to a colorful character. I feel more statues should be like this and truly reflect the personality of the honoree. I found it enjoyable to see despite the number of tourists taking selfies with Oscar.

A bit kitsch
Oct 2019
There is a reclining statue (painted) and two columns with some of his more memorable pithy sayings which are worth seeing. Don't go just for that though; the Merrion Square Park as a whole is really great and there are a number of other memorial statues here that are also worth seeing (especially that for Bernardo O'Higgins, the hero of Chilean independence.

Oscar Getting Wilde
Sep 2019
We walked by the park where the Oscar Wilde statue sits and stopped by for a look. As far as statues go I would rank this near the top of the list. It was very cool to see him lying on the rock relaxing. If I could have got up there and relaxed next to him for a picture I would have but I couldn't get up the rock. ha ha. Not sure I would go out of the way to view unless you are a big fan but definitely worth a look.

I know it is just a statue of Oscar. But, this one is one of my top 10 favorites of any I have seen in my life. I don't know why. This Oscar Wilde statue has a special appeal to me. Check it out and see what you think.

To be Earnest About it
Sep 2019
It's just another sidewalk statue of the type you see all over the world. Sort of a Dorain Gray snapshot of a fictionalized fop. It's pleasant enough if you're in the park, but don't go out of your way.
