Jason is back

Following his previous sell-out appearances in Dubai, McGettigan’s is kicking off Dubai’s winter season by bringing the Irish funnyman back to the city of gold for two very special performances at the Almas Tower in JLT on 10th & 11th October.

Jason Byrne’s “Special Eye” tour is supported by Eric Lalor, who’s no stranger to Dubai and McGettigan’s either.

McGettigan’s JLT is the official pre- and post-show venue and is just across the road from the Almas Tower.

Tickets are on sale now at McGettigan’s JLT or DWTC for AED 120/ticket. Doors open at 7 p.m. and shows start at 9 p.m.

What’s happening at McGettigan’s over the summer?

Ramadan Kareem from all of us here at McGettigan’s! During Ramadan, our pubs will be open daily from 6 p.m. for food with full service resuming from 8 p.m.

So it’s summer in Dubai and if you’re stuck in the city, why not pop into our Jumeirah Lakes Towers or World Trade Centre pubs and cool down a bit?

At our World Trade Centre branch, we have a special Summer happy hour daily, except Thursdays:

In JLT and WTC, we’re also showing all the GAA football & hurling action every Sunday:

If you’d rather have a nice dinner, we recommend you pop into The D, upstairs at McGettigan’s DWTC. They’re currently running a summer dining offer that’s too good to miss:

St. Patrick’s Day 2013 in Dubai! Are you ready?


The Irish flag has been flying from the Leisure Deck of the Bonnington Hotel in Jumeirah Lakes Towers since last week already – a sure sign that St. Patrick’s Day in Dubai is around the corner!

This year’s St. Patrick’s Day offers you an even bigger choice of venues & entertainment.

First up, Dubai’s favourite Irish Pub, McGettigan’s:


Between the long-established JLT location and the new Trade Centre pub, McGettigan’s is putting on a 4 days spectacular of Irish music, dancing, food, and live performances by stars like Paddy Casey and Jerry Fish & The Mudbug Club And An Emotional Fish.

There’s of course also the rugby on the 16th, just before things turn properly mad on the 17th.

For those preferring a little more quite evening, there’s a fine St. Patrick’s Day buffet at the Cavendish Restaurant in the Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers on the big day itself:


The D Bar & Grill – the city’s new Irish fine-dining venue – even offers a special St. Patrick’s menu which is available for several days:


There’s so much going on at McGettigan’s this December! Be part of it!

Good news for all McGettigan’s fans in Jumeirah Lakes Towers – Dubai’s favourite Irish Pub’s JLT branch now opens earlier on weekends. Pop in from 10 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays from 7th December onwards for breakfast, lunch or a pint.

Also, don’t miss the annual switching on ceremony! McGettigan’s Irish Pub in JLT kicks off the festive season with Santa, snow, mulled wine, carols, and of course the switching on of the Christmas lights. It’s all happening in the evening of 5th December and, like last year, it’s free!

McGettigan’s JLT also just released their 8 Days of Christmas line-up and here’s what’s on offer over the festive season:

Lastly, the Dubai Irish Society is organizing its popular “Santa in the Desert” outing again and it’s taking place on 7th December. You can find more info on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/554542521227312/

Make it an East 17 Christmas with McGettigan’s in Dubai!

Guess who’s coming back to Dubai? That’s right, following last year’s sell-out event at McGettigan’s in JLT, East 17 is once again preparing to fly out to Dubai for a pre-Christmas performance in the beergarden in Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

It’s all happening on Thursday, 13th December 2012. Tickets are AED 100 only and will be available from the pub shortly. This is bound to be a sell-out, so get your tickets while they last!

McGettigan’s JLT is turning 2! Help them celebrate!

McGettigan’s at the Bonnington in JLT is turning 2! Yes, it’s only been two years since the modern Irish experience first opened its doors in Dubai.
