Beautiful park!

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!

We are fortunate to live a few minutes away from Merrion Square and we regularly go with the kids for a picnic or to play in the fabulous playground or just watch the world go by. There are often family events here during the summer but it tends to be less busy and more chilled than St Stephen's Green, no... More

Fantastic park with fun approach to jungle gyms - wish I was younger to play myself! Otherwise nice park with good lawns and nice to cycle around.

Great place to relax and unwind in the middle of the day. The gardens were amazing when I was there in the spring. We were shortly after visiting the National Gallery of Ireland.

This place is wonderful - especially since so many places were closed around the Christimas time, this was a wonderful place to spend the afternoon. There is a beautiful park and lovely buildings looking into the park. The best thing about the park without doubt was the children's background - and it isn't one of those small little ones but...

Went initially to find the Oscar Wilde statue but enjoyed a Sunday morning stroll around the nice park where there are a lot more sculptures to see, Bernado O'Higgins from Chile amused us no end :-) We also found Father Ted's throne
