What the Irish village lacks in services it makes up for in mood, atmosphere and great outdoors experience (at least in March). The live music, easygoing feel and good food all make it a definite must visit. The cosmopolitan nature of the people and the great design really make you feel that you are in Ireland; they even have a few Irish people on the staff.
However, be warned you could face a long wait to find a table, and the service is slow and at times unorganized, in my visit I even got a bit of attitude from the staff.
Irish Village is great; they have lots of different events that happen there, like Hop Fest, they also had big celebrations for St. Patricks Day.
There are lots of pubs & restaurants to choose from. I particularly like The Cellar, they have really good food.
I really enjoy going here for the big events, where there is always live music, and 1,000 of people partying and having a great time.
Ive been a regular at the Irish village but recently the service has become very poor & the manager is to be blamed for this. He is very rude and definately is racist towards asians! everything is there to make this an excelent Pub but it is managed so poorly! It is a profit making machine, dressed up like a Irish Pub but no Soul or Craic here... Much better Irish Pubs to be found in Dubai.. Fibber McGees being the Best... Staff are the Best , Music is proper Irish Pub Music. If a Beer falls whens its handed to you they will replace it! But not here! The food is average but the service is below average.
When i get bored from work and i want to drink alcohol, to have a cup of coffee and to eat in the restaurant there's only one place comes to my mind, Irish Village, the one stop place to have it all. I really love this place! the atmosphere is so cool sorrounded with western people and you could see all the people are all laughing and smiling while having their bottles of beer or glasses of wine. In this place you could feel that your not in arab country for a while, the feeling is so free. I used to order Bullfrog and french fries while watching there live band playing the songs. The waitress/waiter are very friendly and approachable although it takes time your order will arrive maybe because theres a lot of people. Accessible to the cab coz its just along the highway. You will mingled with different nationalities on this place.
