“Good Irish Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

“A real pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Fibbers is the nearest you' ll get to a " real " pub in Dubai where most other "pubs" are hotel bars with indifferent staff and management. Good food, good value and great atmosphere.

“Loud and fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We went specifically to see Declan O'Sullivan, a.k.a. The Paddyman, perform and had a great time. There are people from all over the world, but everyone is Irish for the night!
Non-stop humour on many of the video screens between sets, so skimping on the drinks, and the food we had was definitely superior to most any pub I've been, in anywhere in the world.
They do like to crank the music progressively louder as the night wears on, and it did get a bit uncomfortable for me. Then again, we chose to sit right beside the stage so taht needs to be taken into account.
Definitely make this a stop in Dubai if you like a good brew and a fun crowd.

“Best full English in Dubai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Morning after big night out...head to Fibbers for their big breakfast. The works including pork sausage, bacon and black pudding. Great value, 30% off before 11am on a Friday. Great other meal deals too.
