Glugging pints of the black stuff and tapping your toes along to Celtic music isn’t just reserved for St. Patrick’s Day. Not at Fibber Magee’s anyway. Every day at this Irish watering hole is cause for occasion, with live music on Mondays, Wednesdays and at weekends. Tagged “Dubai’s Best Kept Secret” by its owners, it’s not so much a secret per se considering every Irish or British expat will know it, but finding the actual bar can be tricky for a newcomer to the city.

Located close to Crowne Plaza Dubai on Sheikh Zayed Road, the bar is located just off a side street (take a right before KFC), and behind a cluster of high-rise buildings. The small pub is a sort of home away from home for Dubai’s Irish and British expats and offers a friendly welcome
to all.

Food and drinks are distinctly Irish. Comfort foods abound on the lengthy menu, such as bangers and mash, cottage pie and fish and chips, as well as drams of imported famous Gaelic short drinks. Don’t miss Monday Madness – all you can eat and drink for Dhs210 from 8pm until 11.20pm.

Whether you come to eat, drink or sing along to Paddyman on a Thursday night, this is the closest thing you’ll get to the Emerald Isle in the desert.

The bottom line This place will offer you Céad Mile Fáilte – a hundred thousand welcomes. Fibber Magee's

    Bouncer at the door would not let my friend into the bar because he was wearing a turban. He told my friend the he'd have to take it off if he wishes to enter.
    We then called the bar manager (hoping for sensibility to prevail), but he too didn't seem to care.
    It all seemed quite contradictory to what they state on their website "traditional Irish hospitality... friendly atmosphere... welcoming staff...".
    If someone from Fibber's actually reads these reviews, I would really welcome the opportunity to discuss this w/ them further.

    A rare thing in DXB - an almost authentic dive bar. Not quite up to NYC standards, but not bad. Decent grub, decor in need of an update, Declan the guitat player/singer in need of an update (typical over cranked fuzzy guitar, 2 or 3 chord stuff) but the total lack of pretense in a bar in DXB brings this joint to the top of my list for authentic decent places for a pint. No compensated daters here either which is refreshing, although the place is a bit of a sausage factory.

    Food is first class. The bar is not a posing palace but to be honest the its the people and the craic you are wanting, music nights are fantastic and the quiz night is a good one.
