"Georgian Dublin - Merrion Square" Merrion Square Tip by ChrsStrl
Merrion Square, Dublin: 41 reviews and 68 photos
Amidst the hustle and bustle of modern Dublin there are still reminders of a past that was more elegant. Merrion Square is an impressive Georgian square with typivcal four storey terrace houses, each with brightly coloured doors and all in an excellent state of decoration. I took many of them - they make a lovely set. The fanlights above the doors have varied patterns of tracery - do look closely! It makes the whole very attractive, and the Square itself is a large garden-cum-park. #1 was the childhood home of Oscar Wilde; #58 the home of Daniel O'Connell; #82 W.B. Yeats.
Directions: In the southeast of the city centre, about 10 minutes walking east from the front of Trinity College.
