… and it’s a wrap! Another Paddy’s Day weekend at the Bonnington has been and gone. This year, we had old favourites, like our Irish dancers in the lobby, but also exciting new events, like the biggest Irish party Dubai has ever seen, which was organized by our friends from McGettigan’s and which took place in Media City.

Of course, we’ve had the Irish flag up again on our tower, too:

The day itself sped past like a whirlwind with events taking place in the hotel, in McGettigan’s JLT, and in Media City. Although it was very busy, we had time to pop across the road and party a little, too:

If you didn’t manage to join us this year, mark your diaries for next year’s celebrations!

Hello March! Here’s what’s going on…

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.
