This is definitely an Irish bar, there's no other place like it, it's like going back to Wicklow. I believe the Guinness comes from Ireland, and I can tell, this is due to the hard water they use. Perfect.

The best kept secret in Dubai - absolutely. This Irish bar is an authentic Irish watering hole. The Guiness is second to none, food is reasonably priced and well prepared and the service is awesome. If you’re looking for an Irish bar to have some...fun in Dubai Fibbers is the real deal.More

3rd year on the bounce we have visited. Usually Monday Madness, this time Thirsty Thursday. Just as good! Great music and no worries about service, drinks refilled without asking.

Do not go here with children. Our children are teenagers and at 6:15pm on a Sunday we were asked to finish our drinks as children are not allowed after 6pm We arrived at 5:15pm, hoping to enjoy a Sunday dinner with the family. We left...feeling very unwelcome. Plenty of other Irish bars in Dubai, McGettigans, The Irish village where true to Irish values, families are welcome.More

Dear esteemed guest Thanks for your lovely review. I think the good people of Ireland would be embarrassed by your view that "true Irish values" are letting young children sit in a bar surrounded by adults smoking. We don't consider ourselves a family pub and...More

Hello all. I have never ever written a poor review. I have visited this venue for 20 years, mainly at lunchtime. Today Saturday 5th August, I had a table for 5 persons, to watch build up to Rugby World Cup. When I requested mine host,...Gordon, to put on commentary, I was told, only music on a Saturday. Even though there were Scots in Fibbers, wishing to watch Scotland v France. Our table arrived to watch this game, and then England v Wales. 4 hour stay, 5 persons, maybe 800 to 1000 bill, plus tip for waitress. Whatever, if you wish to watch any Sport in Fibbers on a Saturday, with commentary, Gordon says "No" So. World Cup approaching, if you want commentary, on the game, not Irish Folk Music, I suggest McGettigans.More

Hands down, the worst customer service I've ever came across! Except for a couple of attentive gentleman. When we were ready to place our order, we asked for a pint of "black stout" to which the server responded "which one?". Curiously we inquired if they...serve any other stout apart from Guinness to which the server responded with saying Kilkenny. (P.S - please educate your staff on product knowledge!) When we pointed out that Kilkenny isn't a stout and what else have they got, the server rolled her eyes and raised her voice at us. I don't usually do this but this time I will be specific to say this is the young South-East Asian lady in glasses who turned out to be terribly rude and walked out of the kitchen area with guest meals while chewing food in her mouth. Later when my friend walked towards the washroom and saw her, he tried pointing out that it was nothing serious as we were all having a good time, she decided to roll her eyes and walk away, again. Horrendously disgusting customer service!! The pints of Guinness were poured well and all in all, the place has a great ambiance. Loved the bar display! Just a darn shame that one person flushed the whole experience down the drain. Please train your staff and hire personnel that understands hospitality instead of ones aimlessly searching to get paid.More

The worst customer service ever received. I ordered regularly from this place and mostly they would call and say that they cannot deliver due to no rider. This time they called me almost an hour after placing the order to say they cannot deliver. To...my question why they made me wait this long to know that I need to order somewhere else they simply said they were too busy. Half an hour later I received the most disgusting message from the manager insulting me which I was totally shocked about. I absolutely would not recommend anyone respecting themselves to ever go and order from this trashy place with no customer service that allow themselves to send personal insults to their customers with legitimate complaints.More

Went for Monday Madness last night for my partners birthday. We had an amazing night. There was 10 of us in total and all of us enjoyed ourselves so much. The menu was so much more extensive than we ever imagined, the quality and portions...size were not compromised with the Monday deal either. Solo guitarist was very talented, it was just a good all round vibe. We will defiantly be returning.More

We used to be a frequent customer of this bar as we love the ambiance, vibe and service of the staff as they are really accommodating specially the bar manager. Until we encounter this Filipino guard who didn’t allow us to enter the premises for...a very invalid reason. Two days ago we are at this bar but unfortunately, I realized my phone was lost and we are trying to locate it outside. Luckily, we have found it from someone but he was with a group and trying to chase us and get something from us. These group of guys followed us back to Fibber Magees, we were a bit scared so the only way we could think of is to ask this Filipino guard to stop them from entering as anyways it’s already pass 2am. The guard for no reason didn’t listen to us and still allowed them enter so they ended up sitting with us trying to get a drink from us.. We are so glad, that one of their staff (Art) got a hint from us that these group of guys are trying to take advantage of us as they knew that my phone was lost outside.. So he politely informed these group of guys that the bar is already closed and they have to leave the premises. Today, we visited the bar and with the rude behavior of the same guard, he didn’t allowed us to enter as he said I brought these guys with me the last time and the management was not happy about it. We are so disappointed with his behavior so we decided to go to other bar instead. This bar is something that is special to us as the service are exceptional but the behavior of this Filipino guard is unacceptable as they are losing a loyal guests. I believe this could have been handled in a better way.More
