A well maintained park in the southside Georgian quarter of Dublin. Leafy, mature trees, shrubs and manicured lawns as well as colourful flower beds and many sculptures including that of Oscar Wilde, a chair dedicated to Dermot Morgan (Father Ted) and a memorial to members of the Irish Defence Forces. The park is surrounded by mighty fine Georgian architecture and hosts many festivals and concerts during the summer and provides a great location in the city, close to the National Gallery and Museum of Natural History, in which to have a picnic on a sunny day.

Largish square that used to be a private garden for the residents of the houses that surround it. Right in the heartland of Dublin's erstwhile business and finance district the park is a haven for office workers wolfing down a fast lunch when it's sunny, and often nearly deserted in the rain. There's frequent festivals and outdoor events during the summer months, including the soul festival and concerts. And I found out recently that the bump in the grass when there sometime do plays is actually an underground bomb shelter which can provide protection for up to 1000 people. Weird, eh?

This is my favourite green space in the city. Well maintained with numerous shows in the summer including the wonderful Dublin City Soul Festival. It's a great place to spend a few hours with a book or a frisbee. It's only downfall is the Irish weather.

Great city centre spot on a sunny day to go for a walk or sit on the grass.

Working on Baggot St, I'm well positioned for parks. When it comes to chilling out at lunchtime, there's the choice of Iveagh, Stephen's and Merrion. More often than not, Merrion wins out. Beautifully kept, with a good variety of space for such a small green, it's perfect for alfresco lunches. There's a spot where there's lots of little trees, so if you're a sunworshiper and your mate's a sun-phobe, you can have the best of both worlds. Something to be said for the Dermot Morgan chair too.

Beautiful park in the heart of Dublin. You can go just to take a stroll or even zip through when you are in the area. I really enjoyed it during a sunny day and while a street performance festival was on. The grass was a great place to hangout :)

It's so nice to have a park close to work to be able to wander around in. Great for those rare sunny days.
