If the Irish (and those with Irish roots, however distant they might be!) ever needed an excuse to party, look no further than McGettigan's annual Paddy's Day antics. There is no better place to enjoy the best and most authentic Irish 'craic' and hospitality in Abu Dhabi. This will be the second St Patrick's Day for McGettigan's AUH and staff are determined to make it the best knees up in Abu Dhabi, with a whole weekend of celebrations and free concerts.
McGettigan's will fly over a host of Irish music acts to perform free gigs throughout the weekend in celebration of the biggest day in the Irish calendar.Crowd-pleasing Irish band Gate Crashers will be performing on the day itself (Thursday 17th March) at McGettigan's AUH. There will also be performances from McGettigan's resident band The Distillers and a live DJ to keep the party going until late. Guests can enjoy traditional Irish dancers perform as well as McGettigan's award winning food, drinks, fun giveaways and an electric party atmosphere.
The festivities continue on Friday 18th March as one of Ireland's top rock bands Hermitage Green perform live on the McGettigan's stage. The band, from Limerick in Ireland, is renowned for their unique style of indie rock, which is easily identified by their incredible four-part harmonies. The lads will be rocking out for the post-brunch crowd from 6.30pm. Guests can take advantage of the 'Happy Friday' drinks package: three hours of unlimited house beverages from 5-8pm for just AED149.
Saturday 19th March will see an evening of rugby and live music play out, alongside the final round of the RBS 6 Nations. Modern trad-fusion band, The Gentlemen Barstewards are guaranteed to entertain, and will take to the stage at 8pm.
McGettigan's St Patrick's Weekend celebrations kick off on Thursday 17th March and run until Saturday 19th March. All music performances are free of charge.
