The Philip Lynott Exhibition

Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Dublin, Ireland

The Philip Lynott Exhibition is the largest collection of Phil and Thin Lizzy memorabilia ever gathered. Housed in a superb location on the top floor of Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, the exhibition site overlooks an area of the city centre loved by Philip and immortalised on the cover of Shades of a Blue Orphanage.


It is just a stone's throw from the Philip Lynott memorial statue on Harry Street, off Grafton Street.

The exhibition features a myriad of items from every era of Philip's life, from childhood mementoes to instruments (including the famous Fender Precision mirror bass and Ibanez bass), hand-written lyrics, original artwork, tour jackets, clothes worn in videos, rare vinyl, postcards, birthday cards, notebooks, photographs, posters, shares certificates for Manchester United, previously unseen film footage and much more. A large multimedia section includes performance footage and specially conducted interviews with Thin Lizzy members and other significant figures.

The Hot Press Archives have been meticulously raided for all our Thin Lizzy coverage through the years!

This is a must-see experience for fans of music – and for all those who love the man so many consider Dublin's ultimate rock star....
