Good food (hamburger, fish and chips, Irish dishes...) and drinks in the best atmosphere of the town. The live music is great!

Have visited here twice on two different trips to Dubai. Both times there were very few customers which doesn't favour creating an atmosphere. Staff were nice, decor was good-interesting-drinks were the same price as everywhere else-nothing special-might have been a great venue had there been enough people to create some sort of atmosphere.

Dear TWOS60, Thanks for your review. You should have been at our Paddy's Day celebrations :-) It was good to see that you liked the service and the decor. I'm sure that it was just a coincidence that the times you visited were somewhat quiet. Do pop in again and I'm certain you'll find things more lively. All the best,... More

Good sports bar with many screens scattered around. Good choice of food and you can watch several matches at the same time. Very friendly and efficient staff.

We visited here 3 times during the week as an after work stop off. It's certainly very popular and has a live band on some evenings. The food is typical pub grub and is tasty, large and reasonably priced (for Dubai). Although there's clearly a group of regulars. it is generally very friendly with a warm atmosphere. If you're at...

Yan, the waiter is by far the best thing about this place. The restaurant seemed fairly under-staffed and poor old Yan really had his work cut out, running from table to table like a blue-a*sed fly. But this didn't stop him from being on top of his game and providing all of his guests with next-level service. I would return... More

Burger fries and 3 beers. Kiss goodbye to 40£. Food would have been great at half the price, but distinctly average given the alternatives available in Dubai.

Description
The very first McGettigan's Irish Pub was opened in Dublin in 1964 by Donegal man Jim McGettigan. In 2010, McGettigan's started its journey around the world. After opening pubs in Dubai's Jumeirah Lakes Towers neighbourhood, McGettigan's DWTC arrived at the Dubai World Trade Centre in 2012. McGettigan's DWTC is located right next to the Trade Centre Arena. Pop in and try our award-winning pub grub, watch live sports, or enjoy live music!
