First of all, the cocktails here although pricey are excellent. I had a lychee martini and my husband had a Guinness martini both great and v. Strong. Dinner was fish and chips and a burger. Both excellent. The fish and chips came with “fat chips”...More

After a long day at the office, McGettigan's is the perfect ending to the day. Bartender was prompt and courteous and recommended a couple of dining options nearby.

Disappointing. A very modern take on an Irish Bar, but unfortunately, spent too much time on the deco and not on food and service. Food was below average and service was terrible despite very few people being there.More

It was a very stylish place, and we didn't really expect it from the utilitarian type storefront. But the atmosphere was very nice and the menu was decent too. Clean with nice bathrooms, and the service was good. Priced for the area.

The food here was good. I can recommend the nachos and the calamari (squid). The beer from the place is very good as well.

Description
The very first McGettigan's Irish Pub was opened in Dublin, Ireland, in 1964 by Donegal man Jim McGettigan. In 2010, McGettigan's started its journey around the world. After opening pubs in the United Arab Emirates, Ireland, and Singapore, McGettigan's arrived in New York City in 2015! Twitter: mcgettigansnyc Instagram: mcgettigansnyc
