Happy St. Patrick’s Day from all of us here at the Bonnington!
Celebrations are in full swing and we’ve already enjoyed a great St. Patrick’s Day lunch at our Cavendish Restaurant and a lively performance by the Irish dance troop in our lobby:

A little while ago, our partners from Lastminute.com came to see us and brought us a nice surprise: A special plaque of appreciation for our dedication and longstanding partnership.
We’re very proud to have had a stellar year with Lastminute.com and would like to say a big “Thank you!” to all our Lastminute.com guests and, of course, our teams who look after them.
If you’re in Dubai this weekend, do join us to congratulate our friends from McGettigan’s JLT on their 5th birthday! Yes, it’s really only been five years that we opened McGettigan’s Pub in our hotel, but what a journey it has been! These days, you can find McGettigan’s in several locations in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ireland, Singapore, New York, and – shortly – also in London.
The next three days, though, are all about the JLT pub, where everything started. McGettigan’s has put together a fabulous lineup of offers and events – check them out here.
During the past weeks, we’ve also received more guest comments via our Golden Book in the hotel lobby. Here are a few, but you can find more on our dedicated Pinterest board here.
March is one of our favorite months in the year, because of our annual St. Patrick’s Day extravaganza around 17th March. Being Irish owned, we’ve celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in style since we first opened our doors and, from our second year onwards, with our friends from McGettigan’s (who, coincidentally, run their own blog – check it out here).
The McGettigan’s blog is also a good source to find out what’s going on this St. Patrick’s Day, as most of our celebrations will take place in #McGettigansJLT . As always, though, we also have plans for a St. Patrick’s Day dinner in our Cavendish Restaurant and we’ll release the details soon on the restaurant’s Google+ and Facebook pages.
Are you looking for our other March special offers? You can find them here.
Did you know that, for guests in our luxurious serviced apartments, we introduced an exclusive room service dining offer a little while ago? Daily changing specials for only AED 79/portion! Want to see what’s on offer? Just search for hashtag #DoorBellDining on Twitter or on Instagram. We also publish the offers every afternoon on our Facebook and Google+ pages.
We were pleased to welcome Mona from The Monalogues recently. Mona runs a blog that’s worth checking out (you can find it here) and came to try out our Pink Ladies Night in Healey’s Bar and Terrace recently. See what she had to say here.
