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 and Dubai's Jumeirah Lakes Towers was the first international opening. Taking the city's nightlife scene by storm, the pub is located just outside the Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers and in walking distance to the nearest Dubai metro station. Pop in and try our award-winning pub grub, watch live sports, or enjoy live music! Twitter: mcgettiganspub Instagram: mcgettiganspubs

We enjoyed a drink at this very nice bar on our first night in Dubai highly recommend this to those who like a busy atmosphere and night life. All sorts of people here so it's really like a place to be.

One of the few bars/pubs in Dubai where you can be guaranteed a good evening. Lively atmosphere and welcoming staff.

The jazz music and seating setup was great however, the smoking made it for non-smokers quite uneasy

Dear Abdalla K,

Thank you very much for taking the time to review us! I was glad to see that you liked the music and the layout of the pub.
I appreciate that during busy times, the atmosphere can get a bit smoky, however our open air beer-garden is available as an alternative.

All the best,
