McGettigan's Opens New Pub in Bray

Irish pub franchise McGettigan's opened its newest bar in Bray, Co. Wicklow this week, the newest addition to the global business.

McGettigan's, which has 11 locations in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the US, opened in Bray next to The Royal Hotel which is also owned by the family.

Boxing champion and Bray native Katie Taylor was at the opening, where Dennis McGettigan, chief executive of The McGettigan Group told the Irish Mirror it has strong ties with Bray and has plans to build on the new development.

"In 2016 we are aiming to upgrade the hotel to a four star and with the opening of McGettigan’s it will bring to over 100 the number of people employed, with 80 in the hotel and a further 25 in the bar."

Originally opened in Dublin in 1960, McGettigan's has pubs in Ireland, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates and New York with three more bars planed for London and the Middle East.
