The Irish Village in Al Garhoud: Relaxing Ambiance, Live Entertainment

There are plenty of restaurants in Dubai, and one of the places that a lot of expats go to for a relaxing ambiance with alcoholic drinks is The Irish Village in Al Garhoud. This is a huge Irish pub that becomes even more vibrant during winter season as they place the tables outside and it becomes an alfresco dining and hangout experience.

One of the things that we really love about it is its relaxing atmosphere. People who come here don’t have the pressure to ‘dress up’ and every time we visit The Irish Village, people drop by to relax and have good conversations after work or over the weekend. It’s a far cry from the clubs in Dubai where people go because it’s the place to “be seen”.
