Sculpture and Street Art Hunting

The Best Things to Do for Free in Dublin

© Bernd Biege 2017

Dublin is jam-packed with sculpture in public places—including works by Henry Moore—but one has to know where to look. From the towering Spire in O'Connell Street to the cinema usher near the “Screen,” you can spend an entire day hunting down sculpted masterpieces in Dublin.

Alternatively, you can take a walking tour to explore Dublin's often amazing—though, at times, quickly vanishing—street art, massive murals, or colorful small additions to the city's walls. Graffiti artists from around the world leave their marks all over Dublin, but city officials are quick to cover up these spray-painted murals, so you never know what you'll see or how long it'll be there after you leave.
