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.

On Sunday's, until about 5pm, the railings around the outside of Merrion Square park in Dublin are filled with pictures and paintings in many different styles. The majority of them are of very good quality and prices vary quite a bit. They are well worth a browse - and lovely on a sunny Sunday afternoon!

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 as we were in their work. A lovely mix of original paintings from cheap souvenir... More

We greatly enjoyed browsing the art and talking with the artists on the 3 sides of Merrion Square. The artists exhibit on Sundays, starting at 10am. There was an assortment of art, from watercolors of Dublin landmarks to modern pieces. We especially enjoyed talking to the artists, as they gave us many insights into Dublin from a personal perspective. When... More

A leisurely stroll down the outside perimeter of Merion Square, turned out to be an excellent way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon in Dublin. Many local artists display their wares on/against the iron railings of the park, and they are fun to engage with! I loved seeing what was on display - the pries were reasonable , Paul Ryan's...

If you are visiting Dublin, you would not be going to wrong to spend an hour or so here, it is just so nice, beautiful setting, all Georgian and old school, then loads of paintings hanging off a fence of the ornate gardens, really pretty, especially with all the paintings up too.

My wife and I visited the Merrion Square in September 2013. Merrion Square is a Georgian garden square laid out in the late 1760's and mostly complete by the early 1800's. It is surrounded on three sides by Georgian homes, and the other side faces government buildings, the Natural History Museum, and the National Gallery. The park is laid out... More
