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!
