Third Irish Village to open in Dubai

Dubai’s Best Pub is about to multiply once again. The Irish Village in Garhoud is a much-revered institution on the city’s going out scene, and after opening a second branch at Dubai Parks And Resorts’ Riverland back in 2016, a third branch of the bar is now on the horizon.

Set to open in early 2019, the brand-new Irish Village will be located in Dubai Studio City’s Studio One, a new hotel from the team behind Media One in Dubai Media City, right on the doorstep of residents in Arabian Ranches and Motor City.

While an exact date for the opening is yet to be confirmed (fret not – you’ll hear it here first), there’s good news for fans of the original – and its pricing policy.

In a recent interview with Time Out Dubai’s sister publication Time Out DXB, Colm McLoughlin, executive vice chairman and CEO of Dubai Duty Free, which owns and operates The Irish Village, reiterated the brand’s commitment to offering good value to punters, wherever it operates. Prices at both its existing Garhoud and Riverland outlets are the same, and the Studio One branch will be no different.

Fans of the pub’s hearty Irish grub will also be pleased to hear they’ll be able to find the same menu at the new digs. So whether it’s the fish and chips, bacon and cheese toastie or the classic Irish stew that calls to you, it’ll be even easier to answer.

“Nowadays with traffic, people don’t travel as much,” McLoughlin said. “[So] we want to provide our service at the other end of town.” And with around 80,000 residents in the area, there certainly looks likely to be an army of regulars.

Stay close to Time Out for the official opening date.

And if you just can’t wait in the meantime, we can highly recommend a bowl of chopped sausages in the Garhoud pub’s sprawling garden on a lazy winter afternoon.
