Molly Malone Statue, Dublin

At Molly Malone Statue, meet the woman who inspired Dublin's unofficial anthem, a ballad about the tribulations of Dublin's working class. The bronze statue of Molly Malone on Suffolk Street was unveiled in 1988 along with an announcement that June 13 had been officially designated as Molly Malone Day. The landmark is one of the first things you'll see because of its location in front of the tourism office. While the city of Dublin claims that the "real" Molly Malone died of a fever on June 13, 1699, it has no records that show prove that she actually existed.

    It is an icon of Dublin... is famous... He has stories... and is not of this world. If they cross it the way any well traveled, but if they have to lose 20 minutes to get up to there not worth it.

    It's just a statue. It has a story behind which I didn't find particularly interesting. If you walk by go to take a look but that's all  more »

    Molly Malone is one of the main meeting places for tours from Dublin to other cities in Ireland. She is located on a side street that is merely 100 meters from a bus stop and main traffic area in Dublin. Her chest is very bare because someone keeps telling tourists that, "Rubbing Molly's breasts will bring good fortune."

    A great statue that acts as an easy to find meeting spot. Located just off Collage Green, not too far from the original spot, It's well worth taking a bit of time to stop and appreciate.

    Another free statue to include on your day of touring statues. If you are a newbie, or simply unfamiliar, google the song first so that you know what you are looking at.

    Molly is one of a kind. She is lovely and everybody loves her. You got to see her when ever you are in Dublin city.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
