Declan O’Sullivan – Pure Irish Craic in Dubai

Declan O'Sullivan - Pure Irish Craic at McGettigan's Irish Pub every Wednesday Night!For some pre-St. Patrick’s Day 2011 craic, why not catch Declan O’Sullivan live in Dubai, every Wednesday evening at McGettigan’s Irish Pub in Jumeirah Lakes Towers?

McGettigan’s is fast turning JLT into somewhat of an Irish village and Wednesday evenings from 9 p.m. onwards are made even more special by Declan’s live performances.

Declan, who’s originally from Monasterevin in Co. Kildare (up the Lilly Whites!), has been living in Dubai for the last 5 years or so.

Music is his pass-time and it has helped him make many great friends at home and while working in France, Italy, and Canada over the last few years.

He says: “It’s a great feeling to get a pub full of strangers all singing together at the start of the weekend.”

He now has to regular weekly gigs in Dubai, McGettigan’s on Wednesdays, and Fibber Magees on Thursdays. Do check him out!

Here’s a video of Declan in action:

Welcome to St. Patrick’s Day in Dubai!

Welcome to the home of St. Patrick's Day in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates!

Every year on 17th March, Dubai residents and visitors, whether Irish or not, flock to the city's entertainment venues to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. We thought it was time to provide St. Patrick with an "online" home in Dubai!

As you can see from the countdown clock on the right, there are only 39 days left until the 2011 St. Patrick's Day in Dubai.

On March 17th, everybody is a bit Irish, and to get you ready for the big day, we suggest you visit Dubai's premier Irish Pub, McGettigan's at the Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers, for some pre-St. Patrick's Day training beverages.

Make a note in your diaries now! The 2011 St. Patrick's Day Ball, organised by the Dubai Irish Society, takes place on Friday, 11th March 2011. The venue and ticket prices are currently being finalised, so make sure you keep an eye on the Dubai Irish Society's website for updates!

Lovers of Irish music do not have to wait until St. Patrick's Day to enjoy Irish songs, food, and drinks, because Paddy Casey is coming to town on Friday 4th March 2011. For one night only, Paddy Casey will perform all his hits live at McGettigan's:
