Merrion square

If you need a place to relax in the city centre of Dublin, Ireland, you can find Merrion square close to Trinity college. It is a garden in the Georgian style which was planned and realized after 1762. It contains a collection of historic street lanterns, an underground air-raid shelter but it is mostly known for a sculpture placed here: Oscar Wilde iconically hanging out on a stone. The author of The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Canterville Ghost was living between 1855 and 1876 in Merrion Square 1.

Don’t expect too much – it is just a nice park where you can enjoy life and have a good photo opportunity with Mr. Wilde. If you need something to eat and load up your batteries you can have a fantastic burrito at Mama’s revenge just around the corner.
