Merrion Square, Dublin 2

This elegant Square, adorned by an attractive public park, retains much of its Georgian character. One of the most beautiful and interesting parks in Dublin, it is officially named Archbishop Ryan Park in memory of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Dublin who generously transferred on a long lease the 12 acres or 4.75 hectares to Dublin City Council in 1974. The Church had bought the park in 1930 as a site for a new cathedral, a project which never went ahead.

Inset in the railings is the restored Rutland Fountain. Plaques on the walls of the Georgian mansions recall famous occupants, for example Daniel O'Connell, W.B.Yeats

    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.
