About McGettigan's JLT & The Baggot
2010 saw the very first McGettigan’s Irish Bar open its doors to great success in the trendy Jumeirah Lakes Towers neighbourhood in Dubai. Since opening McGettigan’s JLT’s popularity has grown from strength to strength, fast becoming a Dubai ‘institution’ and ‘home away from home’ for expats living and working in the city. McGettigan’s JLT is held in high regard as a surefire great night out for both visitors and residents alike. The bar is nestled beneath the elegant, 5 star Bonnington Hotel in Jumeirah Lake Towers and is just minutes walk from the metro and Dubai Marina pedestrian bridge.
Award-winning food and beverage is served daily from 12noon until late with a host of Dubai’s best bands and DJs performing on various nights each week. Many of Ireland’s top musicians, bands and comedians are flown into Dubai to perform live in a series of once off gigs throughout the year. Acts such as The Coronas, Aslan, Roisin O and Hermitage Green have all been over to peform in McGettigan’s JLT. Local comedy shows are also hosted regularly at ‘The Baggot’; a dedicated live entertainment venue situated within McGettigan’s JLT.
Magners cider not available on the brunch offer any longer.
Great brunch, especially for the cost!
Food was very good service also , however the brunch drinks choice is poor , taking away Guinness and cider from brunch and drunch being that it’s an Irish bar is very disappointing, please reconsider this , a lot of people where complaining, I’m sure the Customer numbers will go down
We had booking at 6.30pm for 15 people, however when we arrived (6.45pm) nothing was prepared and all the guests was just staying on the middle and waiting for the staff to move the tables. Service very bad, no one around to give the order, then you have to wait for a drink for 20mins (just a beer, not even a cocktail or something), then they are bringing wrong order, mixing with other guests. we know the place and that is why choose it, but after this experience i dont think we will ever come again.
best time ever, thank you
A lively atmosphere & lots of fun! Enjoyed the food off the al a carte menu & a decent roast carvery. Service a little slow occasionally, but understandable given how flippin' busy it was! :)
Fantastic way to celebrate my birthday, thank you so much will definitely be back again some time
Brilliant atmosphere every time we’re here!!
Good food, esp the a la carte and great music by John O
Always a solid choice for atmosphere, food and drinks.
best bar ever
service was first class - always watching our drinks to offer fresh ones. Great value for money. Very Friendly Casual vibe.
Extremely poor table service. The table Behind us we’re able to order meals Over and over yet we had to walk around to seek a waiter to order just once. Otherwise, it was a great brunch!
I payed to attend a BRUNCH half way through the music was turned off and football was on all TV's and turned up to the loudest possible level and ruined it for me and my guests So wont be coming back ?
Booked a table to watch a world cup game online and confirmed it but walked in and they said they don't take reservations on game days. Unusual and annoying as no where does it say that online and no one else mentioned it. But 3 tables had reserved signs on for 'the local lads'. Staff pretty unhelpful about it all. Pub is ok but service below average
For a “World Cup Brunch” and marketed as such, there was nothing apart from the choice of TV channel that made me think anything about football. I was told there would be prizes for wearing football shirts, but nobody approached anyone wearing a shirt of their national team. No football songs, no flags up, no serving staff wearing national shirts with “McGettigans 1” on the back.. it was no different to a normal brunch, and was highly disappointing.
Service was terrible , servers very rude and made everything seem like such a problem when ordering drink/ food
Great Day there on the Brunch Ticket. Great atmosphere
Excellent value for money and a great atmosphere. What’s not to like about the Mcgettigans Brunch.
McGettigans in JLT is the best bar in Dubai, my absolute favourite, amazing staff amazing food and wonderful atmosphere. I heart it <3
Another cracking event delivered by the McGettigans team, thank you for hosting a celebration of the Royal Wedding!
Booked the 2 for 1 Sunday Steak deal, and despite the sandstorm closing the grill, enjoyed a nice Sirloin and Rib-eye, for myself and my Wife. Both cooked perfectly. The Pork Belly Popcorn made a nice light sharing starter - very tasty. And as you would expect the Guiness was as Guiness should be in any good Irish Pub. Service was good and whole evening very enjoyable - keep up the good work.
