Description: The Irish Village restaurant and bar recreates the culture and hospitality of a traditional Irish pub. The Irish Village long-standing popularity is rightly deserved for always hosting world–renowned acts and brilliant concerts; over the years many celebrities have performed there: Sir Bob Geldof, Beverley Knight, Ali Campbell, Paolo Nutini and the Proclaimers to name just a few... It also offers media-acclaimed pub food and great craic

“For beers in Dubai, this is the place”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Wanna feel like you in Ireland, come to this place... just don't try during summer time. As far as I know this is the only place (among the other restaurants around Irish Village) that you can have alcoholic drinks in Dubai without being in a hotel. Cool place with a variety of nationalities. Friends go there after work to hang out. They also have some concerts along the year. The food (for my taste) its just ok.

“Great place for drinks”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We ate here on a Friday night and the food was great, service was fine. The atmosphere was excellent. We sat outside and listened to live music. There is also a bar outside which helps as smoking is permitted indoors. Fairly cheap for drinks compared to other places.

“Great Meal At Irish Village”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We were recommended to visit Irish Village and we were not dissapointed, the service was spot on, I ordered fish and chips whilst my husband ordered the Irish Stew, our drinks arrived almost immediately which was wonderful and our meal followed not so long after, we were entertained by a good singer who was very good, the staff friendly, attentive and professional.

“Good food & Atmosphere”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Just a great place to get out in Dubai if you feel like a family style pub day out in the open. The food on offer is great at a reasonable price (for Dubai that is).

“Great craic”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We always try to visit the Irish village when we are in Dubai and this time was an added treat. We arrived around 4pm with great delight to fine Sir Bob Geldof rehearsing for his evening performance so we stayed until 6pm. Just sorry we couldn't have stayed the rest of the night. Staff as always were great craic. Thanks!
