After walking through Grafton Street, we decided to see where our feet would carry us. Turning a corner, we saw a lovely church at the end of the street and there in front stood Molly. The church was locked up from the side she stands on with bars and chains over the stairs but the architecture is quite beautiful! Others... More

We knew as soon as we booked our visit we wanted to see Molly Malone. When we got there a tour guide was signing the song which was a lovely touch. The statue is a great symbol of Dublin :-)

I don't think a first time trip to Dublin is complete without a photo with this statue. Luckily for us it was the pick up spot for a couple of our day tours so we did not have to go out of our way to get the photo as that is really all you would go there for.

Molly Malone is part of the legends of Ireland, with (at least) a dedicated song. She's one of the main characters that makes Dublin what it is. The statue is really typical and it's worth a sight.

Molly is a hot babe, great for getting attention. That makes the statue an easily recognized meeting place. What was life like for the sorry fishwives that sold their husband's/boyfriend's catches? She has nothing to say on this important subject, and any red-blooded male's attention is likely to be distracted from the true significance of those forgotten women.

Molly Malone is just off Suffolk Street, and this is a wonderful statue. Generally there are lots of people taking selfies and pictures with her, typically with their hands on her chest for good luck. Our guide told us a story: Molly Malone sold seafood during the day, but she was "celibate" by night. "She would sell a bit, and... More

Everyone visits Molly, so often very crowded. It is a statue of a very buxom woman. Just another place that you will, and are expected to visit, when a tourist in Dublin. She will be moved back to her original spot when the tram works have been finished.

You've heard the song, now see the lady behind it. A wonderful piece of sculpture that glorifies a simple person who made her living selling on the straats of Dublin in the good auld days.

A very touristy thing to do, but have to tick it off the list. lots of people here. And there is a new(ish) trend to rub her boobs,, which is obvious. :)
