Elephant & Castle, named after the London hub, opened in New York City in 1973. It was soon a favourite amongst New Yorkers and visitors alike, with a menu whose dishes soon appeared throughout lower Manhattan restaurants – imitation is the best form of flattery after all! It led us to adopt a motto at the time of “Copied by many, Excelled by none”.
The Dublin Elephant & Castle was opened in 1989 when one of our Irish chefs was denied entry into the U.S.A., so we decided to move to Dublin instead. Sure why not! Located in the heart of Dublin’s Temple Bar, Elephant & Castle serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. From brunch classics of pancake stacks and French Toast, to the now iconic chicken wings, we offer something for everyone no matter what hour of the day.
Drop in – we can’t wait to see you!
