This is an all-time favourites for everybody who has been in Dubai for a long time. They have maintained the quality of service for more than 10 years even before I was here, I heard stories about this place when Dubai was still a desert and they have endured. I really love the roaming ducks, They are so cute to watch and so soothing on the green grass. This place always hosts outdoor concerts as well as bands that play during the weekend. During good weather in Dubai it is really nice to unwind in the sun while having a beer or lunch. Make sure to give it a try. It is also right next to the tennis stadium where you can enjoy some really nice matches.
Been going to the Irish village for 18 years. What a shambles. I sat in the non-smoking area. While there, the server came and removed the "no smoking sign" so 2 people could smoke. Words don't describe! Complained. The manager, also one of Dubai's finest looked lost and quite unconcerned. For the amount they get paid, not sure I'd care either. I blame it on the owners. Food is substandard but edible after 5 pints. Restaurant is full of servers waiting to get better jobs or death. Whichever comes first. Thank goodness I have other options in Dubai where I live. Steer clear. Convenient is all I can say about the Irish village. Oh, as a foot note, don't complain on the website....think it was updated in 2012.
The Irish Village in Garhoud, Dubai is the place I go to when I want to recharge with great food, long conversations and live music. A friend introduced me to this place for casual dining and I was immediately smitten by its Irish memorabilia, wooden furnishings, picturesque outdoor space and delectable food. The restaurant never disappoints and all the guests I have hosted there have really liked it. The menu has many options; portion sizes are good and meals are tasteful. It’s generally busy but hunting for a table is worth the experience. Despite the crowd, you can enjoy a sense of privacy. For a few hours, you get transported to an intriguing, new world where it is easy to unwind after a long, hard week.
Very nice staff albeit can be slow when they are busy. Irish village can get very busy. The drinks selection is very good, very large selection of good beers. The fish and chips was very nice, the 300g portions was huge , if you order this be hungry. Very good place to meet people and easy to find. Taxis waiting out front when you depart. Always one of our stops when in Dubai
This is a very relaxed venue with very good service. The staff are very attentive and when your beer gets low they're there offering top-ups in without any delay. There was very good live music yesterday which was not intrusive and not to quiet either. There's a great party area fur the kids and some decent swing-chairs by the lake. I'd recommend this place for people who fancy copious decent beers. There's plenty of seating and the Guinness was very good!
