Merrion Square is a well-known and popular area, with imposing Georgian houses surrounding a sculpture-filled, gated park. But do you know how much of Irish history can be traced back to this small section of Dublin? The historic and architecturally unequalled square was once the most desirable address for Dublin’s aristocrats and elites, with some of Dublin’s most famous citizens calling it home. Allow skilled guide Dave to walk you through space and time, and feel the lingering presence of former famous residents including Oscar Wilde, W.B. Yeats, and Daniel O’Connell. You will hear about others who are associated with the Square, gasp at the resident’s most notorious scandals, and see the Statues and busts located around the park featuring Henry Grattan, George (AE) Russell, and Michael Collins. This walking tour is fun, exciting, and informative and lasts about 80 minutes.
Starting Point: The tour will commence at the Oscar Wilde Statue located at the North-East end of the park.
