McGettigan’s Irish Pubs – Proud History, Bright Future! Check out our latest video…

Work is progressing at speed in our new Downtown location near the World Trade Centre in Dubai.

The new property, set over 3 floors, will be the latest addition to the McGettigan’s portfolio, with an Irish fine dining restaurant, The D, on the first floor with genuine Irish flavours and design to rival Dubai’s best and longest established restaurants.

McGettigan’s Irish Pub first opened its doors in Ireland in the 1960’s on Queen Street in Dublin and 2010 saw the very first McGettigan’s Irish Pub open in Dubai at Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

McGettigan’s in Jumeirah Lakes Towers has had a very successful launch, hosting all of the major sporting events live on multiple TVs and featuring concerts and gigs from the likes of Jason Byrne, The Coronas, Paddy Casey, Paul Brady and a Christmas sellout performance from multiplatinum selling UK boy band East 17. The central location and unique take on the Irish bar experience has made McGettigan’s in JLT a firm favourite with the expat community, with droves of customers coming through their doors week on week. They have embodied the Irish spirit and hospitality, while making it appeal to an international audience.

CEO of the Bonnington and McGettigan group, Dennis McGettigan, said “The success of our venue in Jumeirah Lakes Towers has been the fundamental reason behind our expansion. Our new property promises to offer a few surprises, and we are sure it will sit well among our current clientele as well as attracting new customers to experience true Irish hospitality. McGettigan’s proudly wears the tagline ‘The Modern Irish Experience’, as it reflects modern Irish food, The brand is steeped in Irish family history and is using this history and experience to bring a real flavour of Ireland to a global market.”

McGettigan’s at the World Trade Centre is due to open its doors this autumn and already the hype has been phenomenal. The branch will cater to the throngs of customers who already frequent their very popular JLT property, and also those who have yet to to experience the institution that is McGettigan’s. Combined with JLT, this Downtown location means your nearest McGettigan’s is never far away! The architecture and design will dazzle even the most seasoned Dubai socialite, while the traditional friendly atmosphere and unique feel will have regulars and new customers alike relishing the entire experience.

Fans of McGettigan’s are being kept up to date with the developments via their social platforms, with Facebook and Twitter updates publishing regular pictures and information on the advancements at the new venue.

The last quarter of 2012 promises to be an exciting new chapter in the McGettigan’s story! Watch this space!!

Coming soon: McGettigan’s @ Dubai World Trade Centre

The folks at McGettigan’s Irish Pub aren’t slowing down over summer. While the Euro 2012 fanzone attracts the crowds to McGettigan’s in Jumeirah Lakes Towers and the Pub is already preparing for the Olympics, work is ongoing to create an all new McGettigan’s right in the heart of Dubai’s business district.

Over the summer, the site just next to the Dubai World Trade Centre will be transformed into the city’s latest dining and entertainment venue.

An opening date will be announced soon and there’s bound to be a large opening party, too!
