UAE. Popular Dubai hospitality venue The Irish Village, owned by Dubai Duty Free, has opened its doors to Expo 2020 visitors. It will be serving high-quality food and drink and providing entertainment throughout the high-profile business event’s run from 1 October to 31 March 2022.
The hospitality provider, which celebrates 25 years in business this year, has a well-established venue in Al Garhoud next to the Dubai Tennis Stadium and a second venue at Dubai Studio City.
The Irish Village venue at the expo is sited in Jubilee Park, which will be the main hub for entertainment for the event’s six months duration.
The look and feel of The Irish Village Garhoud has been recreated down to the weathervane on top of the clock and the Ballinasloe Post Office in Galway, Ireland (which pays homage to the origins of Dubai Duty Free Executive Vice Chairman & CEO Colm McLoughlin).
Guests can enjoy sitting outdoors on the terrace listening to traditional Irish musician Graham Mills, who has been flown in especially for the event.
