Oscar Wilde Statue

4/5
1 Reviews
Modern Architecture
Address: Merrion Square Park Dublin Republic of Ireland South Inner City

What people are saying:

The statue is located in the corner of Merrion Park and is free to visit. Right next to it is a bustling intersection, standing at the intersection, separated by black fences and bushes, you can see the statue. The statue of Wilde is on a huge stone. The difference from ordinary statues is that at first glance, the color and posture of this statue give people the feeling of a rock star and swinger in the 60s and 70s. The portrait is leaning on the stone, and the posture is not like thinking about a problem, but it feels a little bohemian, unlike the writer in the traditional impression. There are two other statues, male and female, in the empty field in front of the statue. The style is relatively traditional, and the color is a bit like bronze. From time to time, tourists pass by here and take photos with the statue.

    Easy to miss! I a corner stone

    The monument is in-craved in a big rock in a corner of the Merrion Square Park in Dublin. It is easy to miss. Great stop to the Oscar Wilde author admirers.

    Informal, colourful & fitting tribute

    Informal, colourful, fitting tribute to Oscar Wilde. Queues build up for photo opportunity but well worth it when out walking. Nice location, easy to find.

    Different

    In St Stephens Park this 20th century depiction of the famous man is a little to modern in appearance. But at least it is a tribute to him.

    Unique

    This is one of the most unique statues I have ever seen, and although I am not a reader of Oscar Wilde, it probably sums him up nicely. There is also an information board nearby which can be easily mi...
