This statue of the great Phil Lynott is to be found in Harry Street, which is just off Grafton Street. Worth a visit - many photos are taken of this, and some people like to have someone take a photo of them alongside it.

The Statue to Phil Lynott, is just off of Grafton Street, in front of a pub, and is certainly worth seeking out for a photo if you are passing, or are a Fan of Lizzy

Unfortunately Phil's grave and his statue cannot be farther away from each other. The statue is downtown while his grave is on the other side of Dublin on the far eastern edge. It would be best to stay closer to downtown... More
