Happy Birthday DWTC! Here’s to Fujairah. And Singapore!

DWTC 2nd BirthdayTime really does fly, doesn’t it! Today marks the second birthday of McGettigan’s DWTC – the Irish Pub at Dubai’s World Trade Centre! Happy Birthday, folks!

Over the past two years, McGettigan’s turned an old bank building into one of the city’s best pubs, added a beer garden, and launched The D – Upstairs at McGettigan’s, the city’s first Irish fine dining venue, which already ranks highly on TripAdvisor!

DWTC’s second birthday sees a huge party taking place with star guests Mundy and Ryan Sheridan, who will also play McGettigan’s AUH, of course!

McGettigan’s really has taken the UAE by storm and it’s probably high time to bring the modern Irish experience to folks over here, who – so far – have perhaps felt left out a bit: Hello Fujairah! Yup, McGettigan’s is coming to Fujairah very soon! It’ll be located at the Tennis & Country Club and you can already check out the Facebook page!

We all know that, once something has arrived in Fujairah, it’s set to dominate the world alright, so the folks from McGettigan’s aren’t stopping for a snooze on the beach, but are raising the bar a little more: Hello Singapore!

For the first time, McGettigan’s will open outside the UAE and Ireland, right in the heart of Singapore, in the beautiful and happening Clarke Quay neighbourhood!

Exciting time ahead then, but in the meantime, come and experience the craic in JLT, at the World Trade Centre or at Dubai International Airport, and, of course, in Abu Dhabi!

Welcome to The D Bar & Grill – Dubai’s first Irish fine-dining venue!

Ahlan-English-Launch-AdJust a month ago, Dubai’s first Irish fine dining restaurant opened its doors at the Dubai World Trade Centre, above McGettigan’s.

The D Bar and Grill offers a selection of contemporary Irish and European dishes made with fresh and carefully sourced produce. Brought into fruition by Executive Irish chef Richard Stratton, The D is the first venture into fine dining by the McGettigan’s brand. A wealth of thought, care and culinary expertise has been poured into the creation of the menu and restaurant itself in order to provide guests with the best possible dining experience.

The menu places a strong focus on Irish ingredients and traditions. The kitchen is showcased in an open plan style, featuring a large char grill where delicious meats such as Irish Black Angus beef and Wicklow lamb will be griddled to perfection. The best of Irish produce including fresh meats, seafood and artisan cheese are openly displayed throughout the restaurant.

The striking décor of the venue complements the unique cuisine, featuring many elements from past and modern Ireland; exuding a warm, welcoming ambience within an elegant and stylish setting- ideal for both a convenient business lunch or leisurely dinner rendezvous!

You can find The D’s website here, or why not check out the restaurant’s Facebook page here?

Thanks to its location just a few steps away from the World Trade Centre metro station and right outside the main exhibition halls, close to the Trade Centre Tower, the Trade Centre Apartments, and Jumeirah Living, The D is the ideal lunch & dinner spot for people working in the trade centre area or attending events or exhibitions there.
