Phibsboro is one of the longest established clubs in Dublin and the largest club on the Northside, if not the entire city. The club was established in 1954, and further information on the history of the club is available here. We cater for players from beginner up to 2300+. We have had 3 former Irish champions amongst our membership and we always welcome new faces.

Meeting Times and Venue

We meet Mondays and Thursdays from 7:30 onwards, in An Oige, 61 Mountjoy Street Dublin 7.

There is a car park at the rear of the building which you have to get a key from reception to open – we advise that cyclists lock their bikes in here for security reasons (further details are available on the club location page. Upon entering the club visitors should sign in at reception where they will be given an access keycard.
