Merrion Square is a garden square and gem of Georgian Dublin, depicted by delicate imposts crowning the elegant doorways of the flawlessly proportioned red brick houses. But that is not all!

The west side is adorned with the lawns of Leinster House and the National Gallery, while the south side is graced by the Greek façade of St Stephen's Church (1821).
