Merrion Square - Review

Merrion Square is home to various parks and play areas. It is a wonderful place to gather as a family or catch up with a few friends. The square is most crowded on holidays and weekends. The park here is very artistic and appealing visually. There are sculptures, statues and more to explore here.

Merrion Square, Dublin Reviews

  • Our favourite park in Dublin. It has a very nice playground. Not full of people and tourists (like st Stephen). Lots of open space. The atmosphere is very friendly. The kids love going to it and the national museum just across the street.

  • The atmosphere is always nice but specially in Thursdays, when they have a lovely food market. Don't miss a special statue of Oscar Wilde, you must take a picture there. On weekends there is art everywhere. Definitely a must go, even if for 10 min. If it's a sunny day, you'll want to spend more time there 😉

  • Merrion square is a pretty park. If you're sight seeing, not sure I'd make a special trip to see it but if you're in the area, certainly walk through it There is a playground (Giants garden) for kids, which is near the statue of Oscar Wilde. On Sundays starting at 10am artists display original art on the fence outside of the square. If it's a nice day, you could grab lunch or a snack and eat on the garden's lawn

  • Small park in the city surrounded by beautiful Dublin buildings. Not unusual to find joggers, people walking their dogs, and on real sunny days some sun bathers in between the business people that have their breaks here. The park is on main public transport routes so theirs no problem with transport to get around. Plus there is no shortage of hotels, coffee shops and restaurants in the area.

  • Great for families. Pop up markets and food tents during summer time. Kids playground and open areas for sitting down. Close to museum and city centre shopping.
