Standard pub food and cold Guinness. Okay if you need a pint half way through an exhibition but not a place you would travel to deliberately

Great Friday experience at the DWTC branch where there is a 2 for 1 offer on food and drink till 10 PM. Fish and chips were phenomenal. Service was good. Has both a nice quiet outdoor area and a buzzing inside area.

We were at this place on Friday night and more than happy! On this day until 10 pm there was an action on which it was possible to order a dish or drinks in a separate menu and you are offered free choice of something else that would be easier to understand the 50% discount which is very convenient for...

Nice Pub, but the second floor with pool tables lacks atomospher and service is slow. Live music on ground floor is good. Will go for a second time just to try the place again.

Description
The very first McGettigan's Irish Pub was opened in Dublin in 1964 by Donegal man Jim McGettigan. In 2010, McGettigan's started its journey around the world. After opening pubs in Dubai's Jumeirah Lakes Towers neighbourhood, McGettigan's DWTC arrived at the Dubai World Trade Centre in 2012. McGettigan's DWTC is located right next to the Trade Centre Arena. Pop in and try our award-winning pub grub, watch live sports, or enjoy live music!
