Merrion Square is one of Dublin’s largest and grandest Georgian squares. On three sides are Georgian Houses and on the other the garden of Leinster House, and two museums. Many of the houses predominantly used as office space – have plaques detailing the rich and famous who once lived in them. The attractive central park features colourful flower and shrub beds. Look out for the statue of Oscar Wilde reclining on the rock, just accross the road from his childhood home.
