Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A very moving monument to the one million Irish men, women and children who starved during the Famine. The Famine Statues, located on Custom House Quay, were presented to the city in 1997.

    The statue is really good, the location is a bit weird. Although I found a great pub to rest in after my shopping trip round the corner :) I’d definitely recommend popping by to see the statue.

    Located within the lovely gardens of Merrion park, is this lovely statue, that the sculptor has captured the essence of the man.

    You gotta love Ireland's love affair with statues of celebrities - local and otherwise. Phil Lynott wasn't necessarily all that famous. Even some fans of Thin Lizzy might not know the name of their foounder, lead singer and songwriter. His songs are more famous than he is. Having said all this, I admire his work. At least he got a statue while not all Dubliners like U2 enough to memorialize them.

    I am currently walking with a walking stick and felt right at home alongside James Joyce with his walking stick. He is a great writer and the statue is a real testament to his work and his talent.

    If you walk down O Connell street you can't miss this statute of Daniel O Connell himself in the middle of the four lane section. It is impressive. It was comical that their was always a large white bird perched on his head as there is in this picutre

    Located in the grounds of Trinity College, this is an unusual piece of art. In some ways, it gets your attention from different angles and the design is clever. One of the better pieces of public art in Dublin.

    Impressive. Shame about the graffiti. We visited as part of a visit to Phoenix Parkland so worth having a look if you are in the parkland.

    On O'Connell Street at the square with the same name - in the middle of the road you shall the monument erected to commemorate Charles S. Parnell - Irish politician who played a great role in the Irish independence ... The Monument has is tall block of concreted "plated" with rock - on side it has the Irish harp on it on the other the political credo of Parnell - dedicated to Ireland and the Irish self determination movement, in front of all this the statue of Parnell itself with his arm pointing to something. Overall a nice monument dedicated to a great son of Ireland.
    (And why was he called the "un-crown King of Ireland" - I leave this to you to discover when you visit his monument).

    This small garden is situated over the bridge from Heuston Train Station. Dublin. I would liken it to an oasis in the middle of a busy hotel guesthouse district.

    Come sit awhile and listen to the world go by. Known as The Croppy Acre.

    "Big Jim" Larkin (1874-1947) is remembered as one of Ireland's greatest champions for workers' rights, and was involved in the 1913 Strike and Lockout. His statue was unveiled in 1979.

    This is an excellent statue of James Connolly and surrounding detail, but I would've thought that what he did during the Irish Socialist Movement and 1916 Easter Rising, would've placed this memorial statue at a more befitting location in the capital.

    I visited this cemetery to see the resting place of the Irish Victorian writer Sheridan Le Fanu. It is a well organised cemetery that is a place of reflection too.

    Was in the Garden of Remembrance when I came across this statue of the story of Children of Lir. The story comes from an Irish myth about 4 children who were turned into swans by their evil stepmother. They are forced to live in that form for 900 years, before regaining their human form., but sadly as three very old men, and an old woman. Sensing that the children were close to death, the monk who found them, baptised them and (according to Christology) allow them to ascend heaven. The rebirth of the children provides an allegory to the the rebirth of Ireland after hundreds of years of English occupation.
