The first ever McGettigan’s pub was established on Queen’s Street in Dublin city in 1964. In late 2010 McGettigan’s crossed continents to establish itself in Dubai. This modern Irish bar has proven to be a real winner among Dubai expats offering unrivaled food, perfectly poured drinks and the chance to experience a genuine Irish atmosphere and traditional hospitality in a modern setting. One of the first ports of call for new Irish immigrants in Dubai, McGettigan’s has become widely recognized as the place to go to meet like minded people, establish new connections and ultimately have a good time!
McGettigan’s bars reflect modern Ireland throughout with contemporary surroundings, excellent food and beverage offerings, efficient service and friendly staff who pride themselves on providing a truly Irish welcome to everyone who walks through their doors.
The first UAE based McGettigan’s bar is nestled away under the Irish owned Bonnington Hotel in Jumeirah Lakes Towers- a large residential and commercial community in Dubai. The bar boasts a sizeable and extremely popular outdoor beer garden which has played host to numerous Irish and international acts and sell out gigs from the likes of The Coronas, East 17, Paddy Casey and Jason Byrne! The bar also runs a successful weekly entertainment and sports schedule including the ever popular iPaddy Quiz night, live sets from locally based bands and traditional Irish music sessions with various international games and championships televised live on wide screen TVs throughout the bar.
McGettigan’s has recently opened a second venue in the city, situated in a prime spot just beside the bustling Dubai World Trade Centre convention halls and metro station. It looks and feels just like its JLT sister property with friendly and efficient service, cozy log areas, a vibrant interior and large dining area. McGettigan’s DWTC is the perfect spot for business meetings, lunch, or a meal and drinks with friends and family…while still offering the full McGettigan’s nightlife experience after dark!
