Georgian Doors of Merrion Square, Dublin

Dublin

Merrion Square is considered one of Dublin’s best preserved squares, with its lovely Georgian architecture. Since I didn’t have much time, I photographed mainly the colourful doors around the perimeter of the square. I barely went inside the park in the center. Oscar Wilde lived at 1 Merrion Square (now the American College in Dublin); the park contains a statue of Wilde. Construction began in 1762 and continued for about thirty years.

A few buildings have lacy iron balconies and ornate fanlights.
