Specializing in entertainment and hospitality, the McGettigan group has bars in Ireland and the UK, Singapore, UAE, Jakarta and Bahrain.
A family-run company, McGettigan’s roots go back to 1964, when CEO of the McGettigan Group Dennis McGettigan’s father Jim McGettigan opened his first pub in Dublin in Queen Street. The family’s success grew and in 1978, they bought their first hotel and continued to purchase properties and hotels for the years after.
Fast-forward to 2005 and the group purchased a piece of sand in Dubai, which became the Bonnington Hotel in Jumeirah Lake Towers, which opened in 2009. The idea to establish a chain of Irish pubs under the family name, originated through the vision of Dennis McGettigan, the CEO of The McGettigan Group. The first McGettigan’s Irish pub opened its doors in Jumeirah Lake Towers, Dubai in November 2010. Due to its success, the brand expanded further, with new bars opening across the UK and Ireland, the Middle East, and Asia.
