Quite a different vibe compared to McGetty's in Singapore. I like this place more than any other McGetty's I've been to, especially their Al Fresco area. Wagyu Beef Chilli Nachos is probably my favourite and will definitely be back to try the other dishes.

First a warning, there are several McGettigan’s. My cab brought me to the wrong one, costing me an extra $65 round trip. Add this into the high restaurant prices and Dubai became even more expensive. The bar was enjoyable, good food and drinks. Would have...More

Really nice food and good atmosphere for the weekly quiz . We were in a group of 8 and everyone was very pleased with what they had. The ham and mash potatoes are fantastic 🇮🇪😊.

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 and Dubai's Jumeirah Lakes Towers was the first international opening. Taking the city's nightlife scene by storm, the pub is located just outside the Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers and in walking distance to the nearest Dubai metro station. Pop in and try our award-winning pub grub, watch live sports, or enjoy live music!
