McGettigan’s is an Irish bar that will remind you why Irish bars are so popular in the first place. From the dark wood interiors, exposed bookshelves and cosy log corners, the pub has a homely, welcoming feeling. Customers can perch themselves on a high stool at the counter and watch the latest sports action or gather around a table and take in the daily live entertainment. The great thing about this Irish bar is that on top of the lively atmosphere, you have a rather impressive range of pub grub dishes. Choose from tasty, filling pie dishes, classic choices such as fish and chips or a traditional all-day Irish breakfast. The food is fuss-free, appetising and you get generous portions for your money. On top of that, with such efficient service, it’s hard to fault this place.
