Join Molly on her plinth for that iconic photo! Well worth seeing as she's placed between the Temple Bar and Grafton Street, so in either case you don't need to make that big a detour!

You will notice that Molly has a low cut blouse on. They say that if you rub her left breast, it is lucky. It is bad luck to rub her right breast. And you shouldn't rub both or people might get ideas! A good photo opportunity

The nearby church appears closed and shuttered. Yes, this is a statue. Street musicians play nearby. It's one of those things you'll run into walking about town. Near Grafton Street.

Worth seeing because it's a Dublin icon, and so many statues in the city are of men, but mostly entertaining because of euphemisms employed to describe her evening activities.

You have to go and see this sculpture. It is amazing and called after the Molly Malone song - very traditional Dublin Ballad. Don't forget to take a selfie

Molly Malone's Statue is a symbol of Dublin. This girl was a fishmonger who also worked as a prostitute for earning extra money. While the story may seem tacky, it is well enshrined into Dublin's tradition. Recently, the statue has been moved from Grafton Street to Suffolk Street, to prevent vandalism. If you are in Dublin, it is worthy a... More

It's a statue based off the famous Irish folk song. Tourists take a variety of photos with it from fun to lewd.

One of the must see things to see when visiting Dublin. Easily reached by hop on hop off bus, about minute's walk from the bus stop at Temple Bar area. Surrounded by plenty of nice pubs, bars and shops.
