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.
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.
Great value for money. Proper pub grub and beers kept flowing!
Absolutely excellent service and great fun place to be! A must visit spot for both Residents and Tourist alike. Best place in Dubai for live music.
Took family to Brunch last Friday during a very short long weekend trip to Dubai. I had told them of the great busy atmosphere and great live music at JLT . When we arrived we saw it was half empty and there was a DJ instead of the usual great performers. Food was satisfactory and drinks flowed well enough but overall feeling was one of disappointment.
Had a great day and loved the cake given for the birthday, thank you so much
Maximum fun on a weekday - thoroughly enjoyed musical bingo wings. Thank you for a fabulous evening
when i got to the venue my name was on the list however it said that I still owed the money for the brunch even though I had already paid in full when making the booking, it then took approximately 1 hour of discussions with the staff before this got resolved
