Merrion Square
Dublin City, Co. Dublin
The elegant Merrion Square, in Dublin City, is adorned by an attractive public park and retains much of its Georgian character.

Merrion Square is one of Dublin's largest and grandest Georgian squares. On three sides are Georgian Houses and on the other, the garden of Leinster House, and two museums. Many of the houses, predominantly used as office space, have plaques detailing the rich and famous who once lived in them, for example Daniel O'Connell and W.B.Yeats. The attractive central park features colourful flower and shrub beds. Look out for the statue of Oscar Wilde reclining on the rock. On Sundays, artists hang their works for sale on the railings surrounding the park.
