Opening Night at McGettigan’s New York

McGettigan’s made its American debut on Thursday June 4th 2015 when ‘McGettigan’s NYC’ opened its doors in the heart of Midtown West, within steps from the Theatre District. The opening night was a great success and saw hundreds of eager revelers pour through the doors and enjoying the celebrations until the early hours! Entertainment on the evening was provided by ‘The Coronas’; one of Ireland’s top bands.

The very first McGettigan’s Pub debuted five decades previously on Dublin’s Queen Street in the 1960s. Since that day, and with the company’s global expansion, the McGettigan’s commitment to offering the modern Irish experience has caught on internationally. With locations now open to visitors throughout Ireland, Asia, the Middle East and now, the United States.

The McGettigan’s brand is steeped in Irish family history and is using this history and experience to bring a real flavor of Ireland to a global market. It is a family-run business at its core, run by father and son team Jim and Dennis McGettigan. Jim debuted the first McGettigan’s location in Dublin and it remains a family business today – with personal involvement in the brand’s expansion, and a standing commitment to the company’s mission to provide “The Modern Irish Experience” – with each location, no matter the location, reflecting modern Irish food, culture, sports and music.

The team at McGettigan’s NYC will continue to work hard to bring a real taste of Modern Ireland to its first U.S. location and to ensure that residents and tourists of New York City will not be disappointed by their experience.

McGettigan’s is open daily for lunch and dinner serving an array of mouthwatering modern Irish ‘pub grub’ and perfectly poured drinks from its award-winning menu.

Dennis McGettigan, Bonnington and McGettigan Group CEO said of the opening;

“We could not be more excited to be opening our first McGettigan’s location in the United States, in the very heart of New York City.”

“McGettigan’s is all about excellent food, beverage, service, entertainment and sport, which we work to enhance through the interactive feedback we receive from our customers in person, and via social media. We look forward to bringing this location to life for the people and visitors of New York.”

As of June 2015 McGettigan’s Bars are in operation at ten locations throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The outlets are located in Dublin, Letterkenny, Limerick, Galway, Abu Dhabi, three in Dubai (at Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Dubai World Trade Centre and Dubai International Airport), and one in Singapore.
