Time Out Says

It seems matter where you go in the world, you are never too far from an Irish bar. Major cities all have them, with the levels of tackiness varying wildly.

McGettigan’s, however, has forgone the chintz, and its first Dubai offering has become an institution thanks to an entertaining line-up of live music, comedy, sports and a food menu inspired by the Emerald Isle.

A trip to the JLT branch will see you offered a warm welcome and plenty of space for you to park those tired legs (unless it’s post-brunching hour on a Friday, when the bar gets particularly packed and lively).

The grub is also pretty solid here. Staples such as a seafood chowder and Irish stew are complemented nicely by some flavoursome burgers and several tasty vegetarian options (the butterbean and beetroot hummus being a real gem). And if you miss a little of that greasy spoon action, the Irish fry-up here is legendary.

Such is the intrinsic link between McGettigan’s and music, it even has its own separate gig venue, The Baggot, which hosts local bands and rising talent from Ireland and across the city. Sports fans will also feel well at home here, especially during a major event when promotions offer an added incentive for you to make this your home favourite.

The bottom line
Simply put, the best Irish bar in Dubai.
