When we went to the outdoor art exhibit there was only one artist selling his work. I don't think this is how it always is, and we truthfully didn't mind, because Simon Meyler is a fabulous artist. We ended up buying a painting of two...More

I love this! You go to park and there are artists selling their work. Super cool. Now this is the type of items I want to buy and bring home. One of a kind original art from the creator.

Whilst cruising the streets, we stumble on some pretty impressive art hanging along the fence of merrion sq, the art on display was high end, didnt seem overly expensive as low overhead we expect, definetly worth a look.

Lovely way to spend a few hours particularly if the weather is dry. Nice stroll around the peripheral of the park browsing the art and taking in some people watching along the way. Lovely calming atmosphere and relaxed environment around the area.

If the weather is fine you can stroll around Merrion Square and look at the paintings and pictures of local Dublin artists. Great variety and styles but most seem framed so it can be difficult to purchase to take home on a plane.

Set within Georgian Dublin we took a lovely leisurely stroll around Merrion Square. The hop on hop off bus stops here every ten minutes so plenty of time to browse and enjoy speaking with the artists who we felt were just as interested in us...More
