Merrion Square, Dublin
(4.4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Tucked away from large crowds of tourists, Merrion Square provides a beautiful, historical retreat. Take a quiet walk down shady paths past traditional gardens. Grab a coffee, or enjoy a picnic with your family after taking a look at the park's famous Oscar Wilde statue, dedicated to the author who took up residence in the area for some time. W.B. Yeats and Daniel O'Connell also lived among the Georgian red-brick townhouses lining the sides of this square. You can visit their previous homes, along with the Natural History Museum, National Gallery, Leinster House, and several government buildings. Put Merrion Square into our Dublin itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Great Park, very relaxing and wide. The statue of Oscar Wild is visible, as well as on the other. Walk away (bus no regular Sunday). Ideal to cut a little off the pace of the city.

  • lovely little park, statue of Oscar Wilde there. Outside on Sunday morning were artists selling their paintings 
  • Sundays 10 to 5 the art work is hanging on the railings, weather permitting..and what a range! Apart from the park within! A great way to kick off Sunday mornings with a stroll here.

  • Lovely public park with grass and paths, trees and some benches and statues. Oscar Wilde. Playground in one corner. Festivals and events sometimes. Painters selling pictures on outside.
  • The city centre's most beautiful park for sure. There's always great things going on in there too.
  • Really nice part of dublin, merrion park just in the heart of it plus every Sunday local painters sells their paintings there, around the merrion Park, 10 minutes walk to grafton Street, 10 minutes walk to ballsbridge another beautiful part of dublin
  • Lovely park with good childrens play area, would be great if that was bigger (and if there were toilets)
  • We visited when there were various food stalls and the place was buzzing, but relaxing, on a great sunny day. A small, but good playground for the kids.
