Time Out Says

What is it about Irish pubs making great sports bars?

There are myriad reasons, but this popular haunt in Jumeirah Lakes Towers has it spot-on.

Highly Commended in the Best Sports Bar category at our 2018 Music & Nightlife Awards, this always-heaving spot from the global chain has so many screens you’ll barely know where to look.

Generously sized TV screens line your every step at this bar, whether you’re inside, loitering around the circular bar, playing a spot of pool, chilling out in The Baggot annex function room, down in the thick of it by the stage area, or sitting in the sprawling terrace/garden area, which now the weather is cooler is the perfect place to unwind with your pint.

It’s great for kick-off (for Premier League fans), but McGettigan’s also excels in rugby and, rightly so, prioritises Irish sporting endeavours.

But it’s not all about the sports. This friendly pub has a regular crowd that return for the warm vibe and the plethora of deals. Mondays mean a chilled-out ladies’ night with four free drinks, while there’s also a cracking happy hour every day from Saturday until Thursday from noon until 8pm where you’ll get up to 40 percent off. You can’t do much better.

Add to that brunches and comedy nights (see below for this week’s), there’s a heap of reasons to keep coming back.
