Acquired by Charlie Chawke in 1982 The Goat Bar & Grill showcases a wealth of collected memorabilia across a broad range of all sports. Highlights include the great Jack Charlton’s tweed cap, superior pictures capturing many Irish sporting triumphs at home and abroad and statues of famous sportsmen.
True to its name, The Goat played home to a real goat, Gertie, who acted as a mascot and delighted in keeping visitors entertained. She even had three kids (Dinny, Miley and Biddy) and was part of the surroundings until 1983 when she was released into the wild around the Dublin Mountains. She is still fondly remembered by the owner, staff and visitors and her memory endures through the bronze statue of a Goat that now stands outside the pub.
