Dublin Castle

Building 

Categories: Food & Drink

Public House. One of four in the Camden area with 'castle' in its name. The story (which we repeat for the sake of tradition, not because we believe it) goes that towards the end of the nineteenth century, labourers from all over Britain came to London to work on the construction of the railways in this area. Inevitably drunken fights broke out in the pubs amongst the different nationalities. To try and ease the situation, separate pubs were opened to cater for each country - The Edinburgh (now spelt Edinboro, Morington Terrace), The Pembroke (Gloucester Ave), The Windsor (32 Parkway, which has changed use a number of times) and the Dublin Castles.

The Dublin Castle gave Madness a year-long weekly residency in 1979 and also presented Amy Winehouse and Blur early in their careers.
