“A bar with alot of character”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Fibbers has been and always will be one of my favorite bars.
Their prices are very reasonable for both drinks and grub and the bar has the look and feel of an authentic british pub.
It gets very crowded on thursday and friday nights. Be sure to go on thursday night around. 9 pm to catch Declan O'Sullivan "The Paddyman" playing his weekly set. You are sure to enjoy some amazing Irish Craic!
Try a pint of Magners irish cider or some of the other wide selection of british ales and beers available.
They have a daily happy hour from 4pm to 7pm everyday except Friday.

“Good Irish Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Visited this bar 3 times in the week I was in Dubai. As previous reviewer said it is probably the only actual stand alone pub in Dubai. Other bars are all in hotels. It is very difficult to find however. Ask taxi driver to take you to Crown Plaza in business bay area (there are other Crown Plaza hotels in Dubai). Go behind hotel and a few blocks to right. Someone will point you in right direction if you struggle. Worth it when you get there. A traditional and lively bar. Drink prices expensive by UK /Irish standards but normal for Dubai. £7 a drink. Happy hour between 5-7 when it is about £4.50. Food is normal bar food but again expensive. £14 for fish and chips. On Mondays however there is Monday madness offer where you can order any food from menu as many times as you want and as much drink as you want between 8.00 and 11.20 for about £35. Service is great and even with 2 minutes till end waitress came up and asked if we wanted more drink. There is an Irish singer that comes on at 11.30 and had a good night. On Wednesday there is an offer of any 2 meals and bottle of wine for £26. Crap English singer that night. Thursday night has a very good singer The Paddyman. Well worth seeing. I much prefer this pub to another so called Irish venue called Irish VIllage. This is just outside town. A complex of several Irish pubs in a row but all part of same place. Nothing much Irish apart from name.
