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.
Food was really nice!
Great live music and brilliant atmosphere. Breakfast and roast dinner options were really nice. I'd prefer to drink beer from glasses rather than plastic cups, but no big deal. Our group had a great time. Real value for money.
Great food and atmosphere on a fun quiz night
THE place for a relaxed social, the brunches are exceptional value with good wholesome food.
Excellent brunch, good quality food.
The only criticism would be having babies/children at brunch. We were subjected to kids screaming for quite a while before they left - having thought this was an adults only venue, we were quite annoyed by this. Other than that, the food and bev choices were great, DJ and live music very good. We will be back!
Great venue, relaxed and a fun quiz!
We spent a great day enjoying brunch and the delicious food that was on offer all day! Great service from everyone we met as well as a good atmosphere. Made for a very good birthday party - Thank You!
The quiz night at McGettigan's is one of the best in Dubai. The food is excellent and good selection of beers.
Thank you once again for being my venue of choice for my Bday brunch. A fabulous day!
We had a great day ! Thanks to all the staff they worked really hard and the brunch was worth the money 😁
Despite booking we were advised to sit "anywhere" although some tables had "reserved" signs, greeter seemed somewhat disinterested. Was not offered the "Sunday" special menu despite being advertised on website. Although when we requested this particular deal we were told that it was, in fact, available. Website advertised Grand Prix as being shown, this was the case, but it was failed to mention that there would be no sound as Irish football was being shown on other TV's.
Great bar have visited many times. The 5 hour brunch followed by 3 hour drunch is best value for money in Dubai.
I found it very good value for money and the staff were really good.
A grate place to just relax and be yourself - no airs, no graces, no pretences, just a great watering hole with good food and plenty of sporting and live entertainment.
Always a good brunch. Good food, good drink selection and atmosphere is always good.
Very nice pub and ambiance particularly in the Ramadan brunch
Fantastic atmosphere, especially for the quiz.
Too bad the tent is not up yet. I also emailed you and messaged you to increase my reservation to 4 people but never received a response.
Always a great day and really good value for money.
I had booked a very large table and was disappointed to find out that it was actually outside in 40 degree heat and therefore not suitable to sit at. As a result we stood inside by the bar and didn't really have anywhere to eat which was very disappointing. When booking there was no option given for inside or outside and I assumed that all of the tables would be inside or that the air conditioned tent (that is up every year) would have been up by now.
Great value for money. Great service to start, but got progressively worse at the venue filled up.
loving the new Ladies night!
