Ever-popular Irish pub PJ O’Reilly’s is marking its milestone 25t anniversary in style – and everyone is invited to join in the party.

The capital’s original emerald isle-themed haunt will be getting the celebrations in full swing from this Wednesday, and there will be brilliant savings to be made over a terrific 25 days.

Customers will be able to bag food and beverages from a special menu for just, you guessed it, Dhs25, enjoy a slice of jubilee cake and have a go at winning free refreshments in the Mascot’s gold, end-of-the-rainbow crock pit.

There will be free-flowing drinks and traditional Irish treats on offer from 7pm until 10pm this Wednesday, with live musical entertainment provided by Kasey & The Dukes and up-tempo beats from DJ Tintin.

Keen-eyed folk in the capital – and across the road in Dubai – will also be able to get in on the fun. If you spot PJ’s Irish leprechaun at famous landmarks in either city you will win a birthday present of your own.

When you catch up with the little fella, take a picture with him and you will score a weekend staycation at the Le Royal Meridien and be entered into a prize draw to win a trip to a mystery location.

Antonio Mansfield, Director of Food and Beverage at Le Royal Meridien Abu Dhabi, said: “This is a chance to celebrate the good times that have rolled in PJs for the past two and a half decades against the backdrop of the décor upgrade which will herald in another era of great Irish craic at this original and inimitable venue.”

Ashraf El Siessy, General Manager of the hotel, added: “We’re keeping the party going for 25 days because there’s not many outlets these days that can claim to hold their own for 25 years – but PJs can and that, we think, is worth celebrating with our many loyal fans and newcomers who’ll find a warm Irish welcome there.”

We think it’s definitely worth enjoying a birthday toast at PJ’s.

Open Sat-Wed noon-1.30am, Thu-Fri noon-3am. Le Royal Méridien Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Khalifa Street (02 674 2020).
