Visited numerous times for drinks during our stay at the Al Raha beach hotel as it’s situated next door, drink prices were cheaper than the hotel and there were plenty of offers available on drinks

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, at the Dubai World Trade Centre, and Dubai International Airport, McGettigan's arrived in Abu Dhabi in 2014. McGettigan's AUH is located next to the Al Raha Beach Hotel. Pop in and try our award-winning pub grub, watch live sports, or enjoy live music! Twitter: mcgettigansauh Instagram: mcgettiganspubs
