Was surprisingly easy to find the statue on a quiet corner just off a main shopping street. A fitting tribute to a great rocker. Rip Phil Lynott.

We found this by accident. Many people were queuing to have their photograph taking next to Phil. It's a great attraction, don't pay for a tour Google it .

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.

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?

Visited on the last weekend of October and the statue had been removed due to roadworks on the street. I really wanted to see this and pay homage to a musical hero of mine.

Excellent statue of Phil Lynott. Just off Grafton Street. Next to a lovely bar with outside terrace? Took us hours to find this, as was just off Grafton Street, in a walkway behind the flower seller. Easy to miss with that in the way! Apparently...More
