Time Out Says

Pretty much wherever you go in the world, you’ll find an Irish pub.

Now, although many of us might pretend like we’re too grown-up and sophisticated to be spending our evenings at such raucous establishments, nobody can deny that these chilled-out bars have created a winning formula with universal appeal.

With leather booths, sloping ceilings and a classic, friendly-pub feel, this Al Raha Beach establishment is much loved by the residents of Abu Dhabi.

It’s one of the go-to places that you can always rely on to be busy.

On Friday evenings it draws in the post-brunch crowd like moths to a flame.

By 9pm you can basically guarantee that the dance floor will already be filling up and the bar will be packed.

The Monday Bingo Wings event is also one of the highlights of the capital’s nightlife scene.

The musical quiz comes with two drinks and unlimited amounts of the institution’s signature chicken wings. It’s all very silly, but highly entertaining.

We’re here on a Tuesday evening, and it seems like we’re not the only ones who fancy letting off some steam and celebrating reaching ‘hump day’.

Many of our fellow guests are here to watch the live sports being broadcast on the many big screens throughout the bar.

You’re almost certain to have a good view of a screen from wherever you’re sitting, and tonight there’s excitement in the air and good vibes all round.

It’s also ladies’ night, which means that girls get five free drinks, plus 50 percent off food.

The servers are kept busy trying to keep up with the constant flow of food and beverage orders, but the service doesn’t falter at any point. The ‘late bites’ menu is available from 10pm and features top-class bar snacks such as burgers, nachos and chunky triple-cooked chips McGettigan’s might not be the prettiest bar in Abu Dhabi, but it never lets us down.
