He was so helpful in everything that he did! He sorted every question that we asked and served not only our drinks but great entertainment and a great atmosphere provided.

Had a great brunch experience, very impressed with our waiter JD. Jideofor (JD) was extremely responsive, an extremely likeable man- thanks so much for taking care of our massive table with such a cool vibe!

Fair Price, good selection of drinks available, great live music. The buffet was very good. I didn't realize until reading the reviews that I also had the option of ordering food from the menu. The place was packed and everyone was having fun.

Fantastic place fora social encounter or business meeting. Extremely popular. Brunch is amazing. FooD is fantastic. Service can be slow when it's busy because of the popularity.

Description
The very first McGettigan's Irish Pub was opened in Dublin in 1964 by Donegal man Jim McGettigan. In 2010, McGettigan's started its journey around the world and Dubai's Jumeirah Lakes Towers was the first international opening. Taking the city's nightlife scene by storm, the pub is located just outside the Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers and in walking distance to the nearest Dubai metro station. Pop in and try our award-winning pub grub, watch live sports, or enjoy live music! Twitter: mcgettiganspub Instagram: mcgettiganspubs
