The Molly Malone Experience

The ballad of Molly Malone is one of Dublin's most famous and it tells the tale of Sweet Molly Malone "who wheeled her wheelbarrow through streets broad and narrow, crying Cockles and Mussels alive, alive oh." Nowadays the famous song is sung by supporters at Irish rugby and football matches.

Discover one of Dublin's greatest legends, learn some Irish ballads and enjoy a cooking demonstration of a wholesome Seafood Chowder made from Irish Cockles and Mussels served with a traditional Irish Soda Bread.

You will be treated to a delicious Irish lunch and of course, for those who prefer not to eat shellfish, there will be tasty alternatives. All dietary requirements are catered for.

Following lunch, enjoy a good old Irish sing song with a singer leading the way. Sing along to the ballad of Molly Malone and some other Irish favourites. The experience closes with the short walk (2.5 minutes) along South William Street and Suffolk Street to the statue of Molly Malone, one of Ireland's most popular statures, and a must see for all visitors, for photos.

Cooks Academy Cookery School is located right in the centre of Dublin in the city's "Creative Quarter". The school is very close to Trinity College, St. Stephen's Green, City Hall, Leinster House (Ireland's Parliament), The National Museum, Dublin Castle, Christchurch & St. Patrick's Cathedrals and the prime shopping area of Grafton Street. Cooks Academy is Dublin's premier cooking school and is served by all city public transport links.
