  • Unfortunately a target for vandals. But luckily when I was there it was in perfect condition. An internationally well respected musician , this is a fitting tribute  more »
  • This statue to Phil can be found off Grafton Street Outside The Westbury Hotel. It’s is fitting placed beside Bruxelles bar which is a bar known for its live gigs.  more »
  • Phil Lynott was a famous Irish guitarist so deserving of the statue - but - not worthy of a special visit. Nothing to see and just ask WHY and why there?  more »

  • It's Phil, what more can you say. Play some Thin Lizzy while you say hi. Hit the pub next door and head to the basement. Edit. Apparently they move Phil around town, so ignore the visit the pub next door. Although I am sure one isn't far away.
  • As a huge Thin Lizzy fan, a big part of wanting to go to Dublin was to pay homage to Phil at his statue. Sadly the statue was not there as of 31/12/17. I asked the barman at the nearest pub what the score was, and he said roadworks had meant the statue going into storage. However, he commented it would likely be back at some point in January for the annual celebration of Phil’s life. If you are currently in Dublin as of first week of January, and are similarly disappointed, I recommend you visit the nearby Irish Rock n Roll experience - you will definitely get your Thin Lizzy hit there!
  • As a huge Thin Lizzy fan I made Phil's statue one of my main choices to visit in Dublin. It is good and did bring back a lot of memories but it does look slightly too Bruce Forsyth to be truly like Phil in my view.
  • Any visitor to Dublin city is duty bound to get a selfie at Phil's statue, the legendary front man for Dublin rock superstars Thin Lizzy, as well as the traditional Molly Malones statue a short walk away.
  • A bit disappointed, short break in Dublin was great but what a shame the statue of the legend has still not been put back. I'm lead to believe it's often vandalised or damaged by reversing vehicles, perhaps it would have been better to site it in a safer location away from traffic and revellers.
