When we went to the outdoor art exhibit there was only one artist selling his work. I don't think this is how it always is, and we truthfully didn't mind, because Simon Meyler is a fabulous artist. We ended up buying a painting of two...More

If we're in town over a weekend we always have a wander around Merrion Square - it's always interesting to spot the artists you remember from last time and try to pick out some new talent. There's a lot of mixed ability and diversity but...More

I love this! You go to park and there are artists selling their work. Super cool. Now this is the type of items I want to buy and bring home. One of a kind original art from the creator.

Whilst cruising the streets, we stumble on some pretty impressive art hanging along the fence of merrion sq, the art on display was high end, didnt seem overly expensive as low overhead we expect, definetly worth a look.

On Sunday's, until about 5pm, the railings around the outside of Merrion Square park in Dublin are filled with pictures and paintings in many different styles. The majority of them are of very good quality and prices vary quite a bit. They are well worth...More

Lovely way to spend a few hours particularly if the weather is dry. Nice stroll around the peripheral of the park browsing the art and taking in some people watching along the way. Lovely calming atmosphere and relaxed environment around the area.
