“Lovely Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

This park is well worth a visit. The flower beds had lovely blooms when we were there. The artists who sell plainting on the railing are also worth a visit.

“Great little park with interesting gas lights and statues”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

Across the street from where Oscar Wilde was raised, there are interesting gas lights (street lights) and sculptures placed around the park. The best is a pyramid with four sculptures inside along with a flame to remember Ireland's military service branches.

“Perhaps a picnic...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

This is a lovely park. It's a fun walk from the library at Trinity University. See the shamrocks on the light polls and the colorful front droits of Dublin. We had a picnic there; a nice way to relax and save some money on a hectic trip.

“I pass by almost everyday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

It is amazing, how you can disconect from the city when you get into this park. It is also, an spot of events in Dublin very often. And of course, you can find there Oscar Wilde Statue.

Very nice and peaceful in the midle of the city!

“Worth the walk - a city treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013

It's obvious that Dublin loves this park. Its beautifully maintained with flower beds and tree lined walking paths. In the heart of the city, surrounded by Georgian houses (each with a brightly colored door) its a peaceful, beautiful change of pace. It may not be the first attraction everyone wants to see, but we were glad we made the trip. Its not the kind of park we'd find in our town and speaks volumes for the Dubliner's.
