Dublin Statues

Memorials Worth Seeking Out in Ireland's Capital


Dublin statues, are they worth it? Statues can tell you a lot about the city that erects them - about its attitudes, its history, its famous sons and daughters, albeit sometimes adopted. Look at its statues, I always say, and you look at the heart and soul of a city.

Dublin is blessed by a multitude of monuments, from the abstract to the life-like. Here are some of my favorites you might want to seek out. All are in public spaces and within easy reach of the the city center, so go exploring!
