Time Out Says

You’d be forgiven for placing a foot in the wrong direction when visiting Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre. The outdoor terrace and its plethora of restaurants and bars can feel a bit like a labyrinth. That said, once you find your way around, you’ll come across The Dubliner’s – one of the more delightfully rustic Irish pubs Dubai has to offer.

We could easily imagine ourselves in a dimly lit Dublin bar on a rainy November night here, which is inevitably part of its charm. The Dubliner’s has all the nooks and crannies of a quintessential Irish pub, and its football allegience to Celtic is fierce (given the number of vintage jerseys adorning the walls, anyway).

That makes The Dubliner’s great at kick-off, and we happen to visit during a Champions League tie featuring the team.

With a huge projector and tonnes of other screens, it’s easy to lose track of time if you’re a sports fan, while a conservatory houses pool tables for those who aren’t.

It’s lively, there’s great craic and there are plenty of Irish beverages behind the bar. Head here for the footie, just don’t say you’re a Rangers fan.

The bottom line
A proper, no frills Irish bar. It’s great.
