not into irish pubs but I see a lot of people like it. Too much smoke, too noisy and too heavy (for food!) but its worth trying their mash and meats

Good for a casual night out with friends. Nice outdoor area with seatings and sofas. Good to find a place in Dubai where you can breath fresh air. Music can be a bit loud indoor.

Came here with some friends & family on for a brunch on my birthday. We were about 15 of us and were seated together outside. 249AED is a steal in DXB for a brunch. From 12-5. So 5 hours of fun! Amazing food - breakfast menu is ala carte, but lunch is buffet styled. Seafood and roast. Simply fantastic! Free... More

Popped in for quiz night and decided to eat too. My husband ordered the hog burger, he said it was delicious, moist and extremely filling! It came with a bucket of chips and a big side salad, which I ate as nothing green ever passes his lips LOL! The salad was well dressed, crisp and fresh tasting. I ordered sticky... More

It has been a while since I dined in this place, and I am happy I paid a visit today. The place was packed and everyone was watching the AO finals (Federer and Nadal) m.

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!
