Owner description: A central square named after Charles Parnell, a 19th century advocate for Irish independence.
Reviewed 29 April 2013

If you are a Dubliner, this would be the place were a lot of commuters come through during the working week, it is also where the national maternity hospital, or the Rotunda as it is familiarly known, so many Irish children are born here too, at the weekend the place is thralling with shoppers going to the local Henry Street, Ilac, Jervis and Moore Street shopping areas.
For the tourist this square provides probably the first impression of central Dublin as they step off the bus from the airport, there are two theatres on it, a number of small hotels, an art gallery, a museum, a couple of lovely churches and a lovely garden of rememberance.
Unlike it's neighbour, Mountjoy square, which is actually more attractive, but shabby and residential in comparison, parnell square is far more tourist friendly, though do watch out for pickpockets, as there are lots of them around, so beware.
It is also a great place to start a little tour of the north inner city, what with O'Connell Street, The spire, the Pro Cathedral and the GPO nearby and tons more for the tourist. Good luck, I know you'll enjoy it!

Nice sized park to let the kids run around in. It was a quick walk from the Croke Park hotel and centrally located where you could just carry on to downtown afterwards.
