Stumbled upon the statue whilst exploring along Suffolk Street. It's no better than okay and, if you want a photo, you will have to jostle with the many tourists that seem to think their holiday would not be the same without getting a 'selfie' beside her. Saw the statue, got my photo and then had the damn song in my... More

Not much to do or see with Molly, but a great place to people watch. Tourist Central. Watch out for the pickpockets though. When we were there we saw the Garda make an arrest.

A good place for a selfie when in Dublin. That's all. The statue is fairly new and not very good. Still it's difficult to take a picture there without getting a couple of Chinese and Japanese selfie sticks in your shot.

While the story of poor Molly may well be pure fiction, the plight of the poor in Ireland in past centuries was not, and Molly's statue reflects this in its presentation of both sex for sale and "cockles and mussels, alive, alive o," in the cart she pushes. It is powerfully evocative of the desperation that drove many women to... More

The tart with a cart really was not worth searching out. We came across it while walking around. Tourists were lined up to take photos with the statue. Just not that interesting.

A small statue in the middle of the street but an iconic figure of Dublin representing a tragic story.

Although this is just a statue , it reminds me of the images of Dublin I had as a child . It's easily found not too far from grafton st and attracts plenty of people waiting to photod with her and her wares

Molly Malone's statue at the bottom of Grafton Street is known colloquially as "The Tart With The Cart" or "The Trollop With The Scallops". The statue portrays Molly as a busty young woman in seventeenth-century dress. Dublin is littered with statues and the locals often give them notorious nicknames, Molly Malone is a good example. I would not go out... More
