The grounds were part of the lands of the Pembroke Estate from which the Club took its name. In 1983 the Club bought out the ground from the Estate and now is the joint owner in conjunction with Monkstown Rugby Club.
The First XI have a proud record winning the Leinster Senior Cup in its Inaugural Year, 1935 and on twelve occasions since. It has regularly provided players to the Irish Team of whom S.F. Bergin, with fifty-three caps between 1949 and 1965 is the most famous. The 1999 captain, Peter Davy and his twin brother John, were both capped for Ireland. In 1999 Peter Davy scored 132 for Ireland against the MCC at Lords. Our most recently capped players are Andrew Balbirnie and Alan Eastwood.
All the other teams in the Club have had success in league or cup competitions over the years. The Club particularly values its youth policy and encouragement of Schoolboy Cricket; most of the better players who have represented the Club over the years have begun on the under age teams.
The Club has also been fortunate with its overseas players, both professional and amateur, including three New Zealanders Chris Kuggeleijn, Alan Stimpson and Richard Hastie; South Africans Wim Jansen, Ian Solomon and Walter Masimula and Australians Luke Jackson and Owen Gilchrist. In addition the Club regularly welcomes players from the UK and other countries while working in Dublin.
The Club has a healthy social atmosphere, a full bar, a hard working committee, and many other members who give of their time voluntarily for all manner of things from coaching to organising social functions. The Club has a record of touring, of which the highlight was probably the 125th Anniversary Tour of Australia in 1992/1993.

Although Pembroke is located on Park Avenue our location is listed in all our material as Sydney Parade. This is an historical quirk and owes to the fact that our neighbours, Railway Union Cricket Club, are also located on Park Avenue. To avoid confusion when Pembroke hosts a game the fixture is listed as Sydney Parade.
Catch a dart and disembark at Sydney Parade station. Exit the station and turn right (towards the sea) and continue along St Johns Roads for 200m, until you hit a left turn into Park Avenue. Continue along Park Avenue for about 500m, until you see a church on your right hand site, opposite the church you’ll see left turn sign posted, Monkstown Rugby Club and Pembroke Cricket Club.
One of the easiest ways to find Pembroke is from the Strand Road. Either cross the Dart/Train line at Merrion Gates or get onto it from Ringsend or the East Link. Continue along the Strand Road until you come to the first Martello Tower. Take the left (if coming from Merrion Gates) or right (if coming from town) at this roundabout onto St.Johns road. Continue to the end of St.Johns road and take a right at the T-junction at the end. Pembroke Cricket Club is immediately on your left hand side.
