McGettigan’s is going to give away free fish and chips in celebration of Irish National Fish and Chip Day next week.  

On Wednesday, May 31, the beloved gastropub franchise will be giving out free bite-sized fish and chips for 60 whole minutes (7pm-8pm).

We suggest that you get to one of McGettigan’s many venues (Souk Madinant Jumeriah, DWTC, JLT and Abu Dhabi) early to secure your spot.

There’s also a number of special offers on drinks. McGettigan’s DWTC is offering all ladies who arrive between 8pm-10pm five complementary drinks, while McGettigan’s JLT is throwing a massive eight-hour long happy hour.

While the exact origin of the event is pretty unclear, the chairman of the Irish Traditional Italian Chipper Association, Peter Borza, claims that the phenomenon has been going on for over 130 years and that it initially started as a way to give back to the community.

True or not, we are forever grateful.So grafetul in fact, that this is a sneak peak of what we'll look like when our food arrives... 


Irish National Fish and Chip Day
When: 7pm-8pm, Wednesday, May 31
Where: Various McGettigan's venues across Dubai and Abu Dhabi
