A journey set over three generations, one family, kindred spirits, passionately providing authentic, timeless grooming products, encapsulating the unique character & spirit of master barbers, and proud Irish men.
In 1939, just before the outbreak of World War II, 20yr old Sammy Donnelly, along with his brother Jimmy & their friends, attend a dinner dance at Dublin’s famous Hotel Metropole. It's here the barber brothers meet two nurses, Rose & Kitty, who so happen to be sisters. Not long after courting, Sammy & Rose tied the knot, settling in Dublin, and the first Sam's Barbers of Dublin is founded.
The war is over, time to explore.
Sammy is firmly established as a true, master barber & Dublin legend. Passionate about creativity, authenticity and soul, Sammy, in the basement of his barbershop, explores all manner of lotions and potions, creating the original formulations for Pomp & Co. to provide patrons with a regular supply of premium, crafted toiletries... ensuring the gents of Dublin were always at their best.
Back in the forties & fifties, Sammy’s original formulations were, and remain to this day, renowned for their fragrance, which was the result of blending his personal collection of colognes into every batch.
Keeping it in the family, James & Sam Donnelly continue Sammy’s legacy, following their passion, as kindred spirits, to provide authentic, timeless grooming products, you’ll use for a lifetime & pass down to the next generation.
