"Molly Malone" Molly Malone Statue Tip by littlesam1

Molly Malone Statue, Dublin: 26 reviews and 36 photos


One of the first sights I saw my first day walking through Dublin was the statue of Molly Malone. The statue is in memory of the heroine of the old folk song Cockles and Muscles. Although I always had a romantic view of the folk song we were told by a lady on the street that the Molly in the folk song was not quite a saint. Just take a look at the way she is dressed in the statue we were told. She was the Tart with the Cart. We had a good laugh out of the description and a new view of the old folk song.

The Statue is located corner of Grafton Street and Suffolk Street.
