The Dubliner's

Old-school Irish pub in Garhoud
  • 1

Time Out Says

Once an intimate Irish pub complete with old gramophones, signage and even horse-drawn cart (minus the equine), Garhoud institution The Dubliner’s has in recent years expanded to more than double its size.

But while there may be a shiny new glass-clad extension, the somewhat gloomier (and, as a result, immediately more fun) original remains untouched right next door – and it’s there you’ll find the city’s Irish pub purists.

Service is quick and friendly, and if the music’s not to your taste – change it. The bar is one of a select few in the city with its own electronic jukebox, and Dhs10 will get you enough tokens for seven songs, so you can blare out Westlife’s greatest hits to your heart’s content.

Prices are keen, too – though more for mains, as you’ll find starters similarly priced. Expect the expected – colcannon, bangers and mash, Irish stew, an all-day breakfast, and a beef and black stuff pie – including enormous portions. Cottage pie, already topped with no meagre amount of mash, comes with a mountain of chips and steamed veg, while homemade chicken liver pâté is escorted by a canoe-sized rack of toast and mixed salad. It’s all good, and it’s all excellent value.

There’s also an all-day happy hour, which offers 30 percent off from noon until 4pm, and 20 percent off from 4pm until 8pm. You won’t need to luck of the Irish to make your hard-earneds go far at this longstanding Irish bar.
