Merrion Square in Dublin, Ireland was laid out in 1762. It is ringed by elegant Georgian houses that are decorated with fine doors which is known to be Dublin’s trademark. In fact, anyone who is inspired by the very ornate knockers and knobs, can easily grab them from a store right by Nassau Street.
The park – Merrion Square Park is a delightful public escape, and is ideal for picnics and on a fine sunny day, you’ll see couples by the benches “snogging” a.k.a. smooching. On one corner of the park, Oscar Wilde’s statue can be located wittingly sitting on a boulder. I regret not being able to take a pic of the statue. I thought I snapped a pic but as I’m reviewing my photos, there’s none that I found.
