Whilst cruising the streets, we stumble on some pretty impressive art hanging along the fence of merrion sq, the art on display was high end, didnt seem overly expensive as low overhead we expect, definetly worth a look.

Lovely way to spend a few hours particularly if the weather is dry. Nice stroll around the peripheral of the park browsing the art and taking in some people watching along the way. Lovely calming atmosphere and relaxed environment around the area.
