When you think of Irish pubs, Dubai is probably the last place in the world that will come to your mind. But that’s exactly where you should go if you’re looking for the best Irish pub in the world. The Irish Village, a pub located in Al Garhoud, Dubai, was named the best in the world by the Irish Pubs Global Awards, an annual event that honours the successful Irish pubs around the globe.

The inn, that’s celebrating  20th anniversary this year, managed to beat some serious local and international competitors with its impressive authentic design and its contribution to developing and supporting the Irish community in Dubai.
