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

Always very lively..... Lots to do. There is a metro stop nearby but quite a way from the centre of Dubai....

Had a very relaxing afternoon in the outdoor courtyard listening to the entertainment. Great burger and real chips, ice cold cider and friendly atmosphere. Great place to catch up with friends. Have visited before a good few years ago and once again had a good time and craic.

I went to the Irish Village for a meal after a long day. I read about the hype so I had to check it out. It seemed that on the night I went there was no regular food service and the wait staff were not very informative, they were too busy walking around socializing with customers. You had to get into an outside puedo buffet line and order hamburgers, steak sandwich, or Fish and chips. I decided to go safe with a $13 tat was sorry at best. Did not come with a drink. I was a bit disgusted so I struggled with my burger and left. Probably a nice place normally. Check it out for yourself, maybe this was an off night.

Dear Bgreenard,

Thank you for visiting The Irish Village.
The night you visited was not an off night rather a concert one: on evenings like this, the food is served at hot stations and not "a la carte"., to enable us accommodate the busy crowd. So far guests have been happy with this formula as it makes it easy to eat something hot and freshly grilled (steak, burger, sausage, etc.) without having to wait long for the order.

We hope to see you back on a regular evening when you can sample traditional Irish food and some of the best pub food in Dubai.

Kind regards,

Been here many times and always leave there a happy customer! Good vibes, good rapport of staff, vibrant, sometimes have solo artist playing guitar and singing cover versions on little stage outside the main doors, large lawn area for kids to run and play, soft beanie bags and lazy boyz scattered on the lawn for more casual seating, lots of benches and seating with sun umbrellas shading punters, attentive staff bring menus and take food and drink orders. Good selection of pub grub and traditional Irish dishes on menu.
Handy location with tennis championships going on in the background, lots of large screens about to watch it all. Love it there!
