Having visited Dublin last weekend, the statue isn't where it has been for many years. Not sure where it is right now or if / when it's coming back ... we didn't see it at the bottom of Grafton Street as we have done many times before.

This is one of the better statues in Dublin and well worth researching the history behind it. If you book onto any of the hop on hop off bus tours then your tour guide will give you some information as you drive past.

A little over-hyped, but interesting history behind it. Did not expect it to sort of just sit right there by the street. It did make a good place to tell friends where to meet up though. Often crowded with tour groups. The statue was much bigger than I had thought. Still worth walking by and taking a picture.

Decided to take a walk through the Temple Bar area of Dublin in order to find the statue of Molly Malone. It was printed on the map issued from the "Hop on Hop off" buses as being at the top of two adjoining streets, but we found it very difficult to find. There are no signposts on the streets directing... More

This major sculpture beautifully captures the spirit of the legend of her life and times. The statue has, I think, been moved from the location indicated on some street maps.

If your just walking around Dublin why not pass this wonderfully big breasted lady. Even the building in the background is pretty. A church but really closed. Check out the creepy statue behind the fence by the church

Everyone focuses of poor Molly's tig ol bitties, which I feel misses the point. Sure, she has physical beauty and is not overly modest about it but take a moment to notice her forlorn expression, no doubt cultivated by long hours of hard work with little return - her beauty is in contrast to this. Great artwork and glad we... More

Molly Malone is just a lovely statue some may think. No, she is not only that, she is part of the story of Dublin. Listen to the song by the Dubliners.

We had no idea about Molly. Had to google. This statue is good for a few photographs, otherwise nothing exceptional.
