I have been to McGettigan’s many times, it is an Irish family run and owned Irish Bar in Dubai. It is a very friendly venue with the atmosphere and quality that defines an Irish bar. The decor is quaint with part log cabin and part library. It is a great place to chill out and have a meal and a few drinks. Later in the night there is loud dance music and you can dance the night away on the dance floor, or just relax and sit back and watch people, enjoying the atmosphere. They also have regular live entertainment and pub quizzes. This venue is always alive and buzzing with people.
The food is delicious and hearty with portions that are generous and filling. I recommend the fish and chips with mushy peas and the home made burger, the food is of excellent quality and reasonably priced. They also do a good value weekend brunch, an ideal venue for a get together with friends for a few drinks and great comfort food. There is a limited selection for vegetarians, otherwise the food is fantastic.
Sometimes it can get Smokey inside but there is also an outside garden area, which is less smokey if you want to take a breather. The garden area is air conditioned and covered with a temporary roof during the summer months.
McGettigan’s Irish Bar is definitely a must in Dubai for it's great ambiance, music, food and drinks.
