Description
Culture & Lifestyle

Merrion Square is an elegant Georgian square surrounding a lovely public park, laid out in the 18th century. Amongst the former inhabitants of Merrion Square are Oscar Wilde, Daniel O’Connell, physicist Erwin Schrodinger, Irish-American sculptor Andrew O’Connor and William Butler Yeats. On the west side of the square is the National Art Gallery and Leinster House, home of the Dail, the Irish Parliament. Lincoln Place is the location of Sweny’s Chemist shop, immortalised in James Joyce’s Ulysses. Nassau Street was formerly known as St Patrick’s Well Lane. The street was rebuilt in the late 1600s and renamed in the early 1700s after the Royal House of Nassau to which King William belonged. Notable buildings include the former Kildare Street Club and the former Morrison’s Hotel. College Green was originally a Viking assembly place. It faces Trinity College on one side and the former Houses of Parliament, now a major bank, on another. Built in 1731 and added to later, the Parliament house was the world’s first purpose-built parliament building. The tour finishes in the grounds of Trinity College, after which you might want to visit the combined Book of Kells and Old Library exhibitions.
