Oscar Wilde Statue, Dublin 2

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 - 30 November 1900) was an Irish writer and poet. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Today he is remembered for his epigrams, plays and the tragedy of his imprisonment, followed by his early death.
This is the memorial to Oscar Wilde.
A relaxed Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde, who was born in nearby Westland Row in 1854, is shown reclining on a huge 35-ton quartz rock.
Wilde, who spent much of his adult life in England, is regarded as one of Ireland's greatest literary figures. Until the late 1890s, owing to a gay affair which led to a prison sentence and disgrace, he was the darling of the upper classes, entertaining them with his wit and conversation

    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.
