JLT. You rock!

Cast your mind back five years and, tugged away on page 25 (currently) of the TripAdvisor listing for our McGettigan’s JLT pub, you’ll find the first ever review for what was then the first family owned & operated Irish pub in Dubai:

Screen Shot 2015-05-22 at 10.13.53 pmIt all started in Jumeirah Lakes Towers in the shadow of the Bonnington Hotel and even though McGettigan’s pubs can now be found in Abu Dhabi, Limerick, Letterkenny, Fujairah, Singapore, and – soon – New York and Galway, our JLT pub hold a special place in our hearts.

Therefore, we’re very happy to announce that our JLT team received not only a 2015 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, but because it’s been the 5th year in a row that the pub has received this accolade, McGettigan’s JLT has also been admitted to the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame for bars and restaurants that offer consistently outstanding service.

All credit goes to our guests and reviewers and, of course, our team in Jumeirah Lakes Towers!
