Charles Fitzgerald Pub
Sandycove, Co. Dublin
Fitzgeralds of Sandycove is one of Dublins most famous Victorian pubs. The Joycean theme is prominent in this pleasant and relaxing lounge. It is convenient for a drink, or lunch after a visit to the James Joyce Tower in Sandycove.

Charles Fitzgeralds of Sandycove was established as a public house in 1861, and has been in the current family since 1960.

Internationally renowned author, James Joyce is a major influence on the premises as is visible from the many pictures, posters & newspaper cuttings on the walls of the premises. Each chapter of his acclaimed work, Ulysses, is featured on the stained glass windows throughout the pub. Ulysses began in the nearby Martello Tower, which was originally built to withstand an invasion by Napoleon, but is now the James Joyce Museum which also houses many photographs, personal possessions and rare editions of Joyce’s’ work.

Although restored in recent years, this house is one of the great Victorian pubs of Dublin. Quaint, relaxing and unpretentious, Charles Fitzgeralds captures the austerity of Victorian life better than any contemporary pub. Charles Fitzgeralds traces its origins to the Royal visit of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in August 1861.
