If you're on the hunt for a lively bar with great food in Abu Dhabi, McGettigan's is the place for you. This global chain of Irish pubs is well-versed in serving up tasty food, drinks and service with a smile to boot. On the screens, you'll find all the live sport you could want, while on the menu you'll find plenty of small and large options for sharing, as well as an extensive range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks to choose from.
To sip on during the game (or meal), there are draught beers like Guinness, Stella Artois, Peroni, Heineken and Budweiser. If you prefer wine, there's a very reasonably priced list of global options by the bottle or glass. For a shorter sip, there are plenty of spirits from all over the world to try, including Irish whiskey, Cuban rum and Russian vodka. However, we recommend trying one of the house cocktails. These include the punchy 'Irish snapper', a mix of whiskey, peach schnapps, lime and cranberry. Alternatively, go for something a little more classic like a dirty martini or mai tai. Don't miss the happy hour, which runs 3-8 pm every day.
Food is by no means an afterthought at McGettigan's. Those seeking something to snack on can enjoy the likes of fiery chicken wings, beef chilli nachos, panko breaded fishcakes or mushrooms on toast with truffle oil. Diners staying for a full meal, meanwhile, can tuck into heartier fare like cod and chips, steaks, butter chicken or cottage pie, as well as pasta dishes like bolognese and burgers too.
Finish off with a decadent, pub-style dessert like sticky toffee pudding, granny smith apple pie with custard or Bailey's cheesecake with berry compote. To book a table, simply choose a time and group size on the right and the booking widget will do the rest.
