Bar & pub food 04 356 0470 Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT)

This contemporary Irish bar is a no frills kind of place. It’s decked out in wood panelling with the food menu printed on paper tablemats. There’s also a garden area with palm trees and shaded cabanas. The bar is pretty minimalistic in comparison to traditional pubs you’d find on the emerald isle; there is no clutter or antiques lining the walls. But the draw at McGettigan’s is the comforting food such as Atlantic salmon, fish and chips, and freshly-prepared soups. Another popular choice is the buffalo chicken wrap with fries and ranch dressing; perfect for lovers of spicy food. Keep an eye out for the changing daily specials as well, which often feature Irish dishes with a modern twist. Service can be haphazard at times, especially during major sporting events or post-brunch, but it’s generally quite friendly. There’s also regular live music throughout the week, ensuring a great atmosphere at almost any time. And if it’s hearty, pub grub you’re after, you won’t be disappointed at McGettigan’s.
