  • Beautiful spacious park for family fun time. Many events happen there all around the year. We went to science event which was really amazing. My children participated in many little fun experiments. Good for playing football with your children or for sun bathing as well

  • Beautiful park, so peaceful and well maintained park. Great for the kids and adults. Lots of beautiful statues and other installations

  • One of the most emblematic places in Dublin with its Georgian buildings with colourful doors. In the same square you can find the National Gallery of Ireland and the Natural History Museum of Ireland. In the centre of the square there's a nice park with the famous sculpture of Oscar Wilde made in marble of different colours.

  • Nice park to walk through or sit on a bench with a coffee. They have a good market every Thursday at lunch time and often have events at weekends. Particularly for festivals.

  • Great place on the weekend and on Sunday enjoy a walk around the perimeter of the park and see local artists selling their work. Plenty to look at and choose from. On the bottom side of the park you'll find Oscar Wilde sat on a rock contemplating the world and much more. It's only a short walk from Grafton Street and places to shop eat and drink.
