The Irish Village named best Irish pub in the world

Abu Dhabi's McGettigan's took home the coveted crown for Best International Pub Food

The Irish Village named best Irish pub in the world

The Irish Village in Al Garhoud has named best Irish pub on the world.

Beating off competition from all across the globe - Glasgow’s Jinity McGuinty’s, Kevin Barry’s in Savannah (Georgia, USA), Galway Bay in Annapolis (Maryland, USA), and Jameson Distillery and Pub in the German city of Cologne - as well as local rival McGettigan's, it scooped the prize at the Irish Pubs Global Awards.

Abu Dhabi's McGettigan's took home the coveted crown for Best International Pub Food.

“Dubai and the Irish Village has become part of the community for the past twenty years,” Dave Cattanach of The Irish Village told the BBC about the Irish Pubs Global award. “New people coming to Dubai head to the Irish Village because they know they’ll get the Irish welcome.

“We’re also a good pub to know what’s going on in Dubai.”
