The Irish Village is one of Dubai’s larger Irish venues with a spacious outdoor terrace. Inside, the bar is slightly more traditional with dark wooden furnishings and old-fashioned glass partitions. The walls and shelves are adorned with antiques and quirky Irish memorabilia. Visitors can watch the latest sports coverage or listen to live entertainment. When it comes to the food, the menu has enough dishes to satisfy the average pub-goer. There is a range of traditional dishes such as Irish stew, a daily roast of the day and fish and chips as well as wraps and panini melts. It’s a great spot for a casual drink with friends.
Open Sat-Wed 11am-1am, Thu-Fri 11am-2am (last orders for food: 10pm). Aviation Club, Garhoud, (04 239 5000).
