We discovered this small Square on our way from our hotel (the excellent Croke Park) to O'Connell Street. It hasn't got the grandeur of Merrion Square but it offers enjoyment and relaxation for locals and visitors alike.

We stayed right on Mountjoy Square and appreciated looking out at it as well as the playground which was fun for our 6 yo. It's got quite an authentic feel and as an added bonus there are two Pokestops conveniently located for your Pokemon playing pleasure. A nice outdoor moment in the less salubrious part of town.

A bit run down - which is a shame because with a little TLC it could be restored to a grander square like its counterparts on the south side of the city.

A run-down Georgian square with a park in the middle, best known as a land mark for reaching Croke Park, otherwise don't waste your time. If you want a view of Georgian buildings in Dublin well Mountjoy Square is not recommended.

So much hidden history here, also where 'Once' the Irish Oscar-winning film was made - As a guide I'd recommend viewing the wikipedia page as there is little official tourism guides on the Square, despite links with literary giants James Joyce, WB Yeats, Sean O'Casey: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountjoy_Square As for eating in Georgian North Dublin, there's the charming Cobalt Cafe on nearby...
