Molly Malone Statue, Dublin

(950+ reviews on the web)
Monument Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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."
  • 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.
  • A must visit of Dublin. One of the most iconic figures of Irish history, which lets you touch her boobs ;)
  • 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.
  • Pretty much just sells cockles and muscles. I've never bought any myself but I've heard they're very fresh.
