McGettigan's Irish Pub will soon be seen in Abu Dhabi.

After opening three branches in Dubai, McGettigan's Irish Pub will now be opening in Abu Dhabi at Al Raha Beach Hotel at the end of February 2014.

Bonnington and McGettigan's Group CEO Dennis McGettigan said: "The call of Abu Dhabi has been very strong over the years, but as we have expanded each time with a new venue in Dubai, the need to develop into Abu Dhabi has become even greater.

"We found the perfect location at The Al Raha Beach Hotel and we are working towards our new opening at end of February 2014. We look forward to bringing the same award winning formula to Abu Dhabi, a place where people are guaranteed the best food, drink, music, entertainment and atmosphere."

He added: "Abu Dhabi is our main focus right now; we have a fabulous venue and we intend to bring that special McGettigan’s formula to the ex pats of Abu Dhabi, it is an exciting time."

McGettigan’s Pub was first opened in Ireland in the 1960’s on Queen Street in Dublin by Jim McGettigan, and then opened up in Jumeirah Lakes Towers in 2010. 

Since then it has expanded to the Dubai World Trade Centre Arena and Dubai International Airport.

The brand is currently exploring opportunities throughout other continents and would like to see McGettigan’s shamrock across most major cities in the near future.
