Yan, the waiter is by far the best thing about this place. The restaurant seemed fairly under-staffed and poor old Yan really had his work cut out, running from table to table like a blue-a*sed fly. But this didn't stop him from being on top of his game and providing all of his guests with next-level service. I would return... More

Burger fries and 3 beers. Kiss goodbye to 40£. Food would have been great at half the price, but distinctly average given the alternatives available in Dubai.

An atmospheric pub . Lots of party space including an outdoor lawn as well as spacious indoor seating . Food is good , if a bit heavy ( especially on the mashed potato accompaniments ) and helpings are large . The salmon is excellent quality and the Greek Salad and bread and butter pudding would be the other recommendations .... More

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. After opening pubs in Dubai's Jumeirah Lakes Towers neighbourhood, McGettigan's DWTC arrived at the Dubai World Trade Centre in 2012. McGettigan's DWTC is located right next to the Trade Centre Arena. Pop in and try our award-winning pub grub, watch live sports, or enjoy live music!
