Evidently, Molly was moved from where she used to be....we looked and looked down by the river and actually walked right by her in her current location. Yes...we stopped for a pic and managed to get a couple with no one around her! It was late in the day so it was a little less crowded than it usually is.... More

Every guide I read about visiting Dublin said not to take a pic with Molly because it is too touristic. Just do it. After all, you are a tourist. And it was quite easy. Beside us, there was only one other couple and we kindly share the statue for our "tourists" pictures. It is cool

This is a walk-by event, 5 minutes and you are done here. Molly Malone statue is very well done bit of cultural, traditional sculpture in Dublin. However, do not even hope to get a decent photo of the statue. We were there in off-season, and it was swarmed with locals, kids and tourists, taking photos, leaning on it, climbing and... More

This visit was September of 2013. I'm not sure how you are supposed to get near this statue (see the picture I took below). She was surrounded by bicycles, vans, construction equipment, buses and a trash can. I think they need to find another location for her, more out in the open, so people might have their picture made with... More

There are plenty of statues in Dublin and most of them deserve a look or two, but that one actually attracts more attention. The woman is very lifelike, all details are very well done including the fish on the cart (btw, check out what is inside the baskets), the revealing dress is helping too. It's a great photo spot, especially... More

Far too many people stand in the way trying to take pictures of this. Combine that with the Leprechaun's that are invaribly standing there, all the buses driving past and the fact that it's at the bottom of Grafton Street and you have a very busy place to try and walk past!

As far as statues goes it's pretty good. It's something a little different and represents a piece of history for the city. I'd only spend a few minutes to take a look though.

Good place to take a cheesy tourist photo. As they say, "The Tart with the Cart" is a big tourist draw.
