“Great food, ales and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a wonderful evening at this pub with great tasting Kilkenny and outstanding organic roasted chicken with parsnips and mashed potatoes. And the best part was the outstanding service provided by Sarah, a real wonderful and delightful server. Will most certainly go back over the course of the next week.

Between October and May the Irish Pub in the Irish Village is a great place to hang out on the weekends with lots of al fresco areas to enjoy food and a pint as well as some of the best live bands in Dubai

Hello The DolphinGuy!

Glad to read you enjoyed visiting The Irish Village.
Indeed October to May are great months to sit outdoor and enjoy dinner or drinks, but come Summer months, we do build a "Summer Retreat" that is covered terrace area with air condition, Also in August we hold our Hopfest, a 3-day beer festival under a huge air-conditioned marquee. Not to be missed!
See you soon,

“Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The Irish village is a good place to meet friends, sit outside and enjoy some good beer. The bar food was tasty. The sausage appetizer was excellent. There is a wide range of beer to chose. Over the course of our stay, six hours, we only had to ask for a refill once. Service was friendly, fast & timely. If the weather is good, pick a spot outside. Otherwise there is plenty of seating inside.
