The McGettigan Group today announce the opening of their fourth venue in Dubai, located at Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim. The new venue will open its doors to the public on Wednesday August 17 from 4pm for a soft-opening phase, with an official launch party taking place in September.
McGettigan’s Madinat Jumeirah is the latest venture in a series of new openings for the group, who launched McGettigan’s in Fulham, London (July 2016) as well as an entirely new concept, Warehouse Bar + Kitchen in Co. Donegal, Ireland (July 2016).
The Madinat branch, which has an indoor capacity for up to 400 people, reflects the core concept of the popular McGettigan’s destinations in JLT and DWTC, with live music, sports, fantastic fare and top-quality drinks and stunning, contemporary décor.
Located at the site formerly known as Frioul restaurant, McGettigan’s Madinat Jumeirah enjoys a prime location with postcard perfect views of the Burj Al Arab and souk waterways – with outdoor seating providing excellent views and a relaxed atmosphere ideal for enjoying dinner and drinks.
McGettigan Group CEO, Dennis McGettigan said, “We are excited to launch McGettigan’s pub at Madinat Jumeirah and bring our famous Irish hospitality to an area that is known for topclass dining.” The venue is easily accessible from the main entrance of Souk Madinat Jumeirah close to the taxi drop-off point and car park. Guests can simply enter McGettigan’s via a staircase next to Pacha Ibiza Dubai, which leads down onto the waterway and outdoor terrace area of the Irish bar.
Open for lunch and dinner – the menu is a mix of international cuisines alongside traditional Irish menu items. The new menu will offer guests a mixture of McGettigan’s favourite signature dishes alongside new items which have been created exclusively for the Madinat Jumeirah venue. Dishes include grilled sea bass, steak tartar, salmon sashimi as well as seafood broth, Irish artisan cheeses and Irish mussels.
In keeping with McGettigan’s warm hospitality and friendly welcome, a range of offers and promotions will be available throughout the week.
Happy Hour will run daily on selected house beverages between 2pm and 8pm, for just AED29. Offer valid from opening date.
