Thank you for some excellent memorabilia!

Everybody who’s been to McGettigan’s knows that we have a wall of fame, where we display memorabilia given to us by our guests.

We’ve just received two more truly outstanding gifts, which will shortly take pride of place in Dubai’s foremost Irish pub!

First, however, it’s time to say thanks to the people who so kindly donated the items. The first one came courtesy of the Ospreys Rugby Team:

The Ospreys like Mcgettigan's Pub!

The second item, which arrived by post yesterday, is truly unique and stunning. Granted, only people knowledgeable about horse racing will be able to appreciate it fully, but still, having one of these is a real coup:

What you see here is nothing other than the bridle worn by Giant’s Causeway. Giant’s Causeway is quite the horse:

Super Saturday @ McGettigan’s! Oh, and Obama’s in Ireland!

Super Saturday at McGettigan's in DubaiIt’s Super Saturday next Saturday! Munster is playing Leinster and, if Rugby isn’t your thing, you can catch Barcelona vs. Manchester later on the same evening.

Those of you who were in McGettigan’s last weekend, know that it’s the city’s best venue to watch sporting action and enjoy a good craic.

Talking about the craic… President Obama is in Dublin right now. We presume he’s visiting for the craic. Maybe he will pop into McGettigan’s in Queen Street to have a pint? If so, you can watch it live on TV at McGettigan’s this afternoon (Monday)! We’ve had numerous calls asking us whether we’ll screen the President’s visit to Dublin, so of course we obliged…
