Duke of Wellington Monument, Dublin 8
Wellington Monument may refer to any one of the monuments to Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, a leading British political and military figure of the 19th Century, particularly noted for his defeat of Napoleon in the Battle of Waterloo.
The Wellington Testimonial was built to commemorate the victories of
Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. Wellington, a member of the
Anglo-Irish upper class, also known as the 'Iron Duke', was born in
Dublin. Originally planned to be located in Merrion Square, it was built
in the Phoenix Park after opposition from the square's residents.
Over the past 10 years I spend an average of 190 nights per annum in hotels throughout Europe and the USA, and the Trinity is my favourite hotel of all! The friendly staff and the accommodation make for an enjoyable stay.
Really nice hotel, staff very helpful. Bed very comfy and rooms nice and warm, would recommend it to all.
