Well, watch it for the craic then…

Never mind the Royal Wedding, join us for Friday Brunch!Not a fan of Royal Weddings? Well, join us for Friday Brunch on the 29th and watch it for the sheer craic then…

Wedding, schmedding? Things could be much worse! You could be stuck in London town on the 29th… Rain, security everywhere, overpriced hotel rooms and sloppily poured Guinness. Instead, you’re in Dubai and just a short hop away from McGettigan’s – the home of Dubai’s best poured pint of Guinness!

So yes, the wedding will be screened in the Pub from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. on the 29th. Pop in, have a brunch or two (after all, it’s only AED 99/person per brunch), check out the Royals, and later on in the evening join us for Mundy live at the Garden @ McGettigan’s! For the latter, tickets are selling faster than Royal Wedding souvenir coffee mugs, so make sure you get your ticket today at McGettigan’s!

Mundy live in Dubai!

The Wolfe Tones at McGettigan’s…

The legendary Wolfe Tones rocked the Garden @ McGettigan’s last Friday and performed a 2 1/2 hours set in front of a sell out crowd.

Captivating from the first tunes of the first song until the last note of the closing tune, the Wolfe Tones had the crowd dancing and singing all night long.

The Wolfe Tones are Ireland’s number one folk and ballad group. Currently celebrating 48 legendary years on the road, the group continue to sell out venues across the world. Check out their official Facebook page here or follow them on Twitter.

April and May will see two more concerts taking place in the Garden @ McGettigan’s: Mundy plays the Garden on Friday, 29th April, and Paul Brady will appear on 6th May. Get your tickets today!

Party Pictures!

St. Patrick’s Day is officially over for this year, but what a day it was in Dubai!
Thousands of people celebrating all things green in various venues across the city, singing, dancing, and partying the night away.
Slowly the first pictures start to pour in and here’s a couple of them showing the party atmosphere at McGettigan’s Irish Pub and the Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

Dubizzle also has a nice picture gallery of the party in Jumeirah Lakes Towers and you can view it here.

The Bonnington Hotel and McGettigan’s Irish Pub in Jumeirah Lakes Towers have kicked off the day’s celebration’s with a live performance of dancers from the Siobhan Kilalea School of Irish Dance in the Bonnington’s Hotel lobby.

Already a big hit with Bonnington guests and visitors last year, the dancers drew big crowds again this afternoon. There are two more performances planned for today, one at 6 p.m. in the beergarden just outside Mcgettigan’s and one at 9 p.m. again in the lobby of the Bonnington, where the Cavendish restaurant also offers a specially created St. Patrick’s Day menu.
