Easter Monday in Merrion Square made me proud to be Irish
Without a shadow of a doubt the best day I've spent in Dublin City with my young family was Easter Monday 2016.
We began our adventure by train from Dunboyne to Pearse Station, (the older children had wanted to go to Tayto Park and grumbled a little, but luckily resigned themselves). Along with a picnic, we strolled to Merrion Square to be completely uplifted by what surrounded us.
Dublin City opened itself to us and there was a real sense of freedom. Money was not required as activities were offered by the artists who kindly shared their talents with our children.
