Fadó Irish Pub Expands into the Middle East in Partnership with the Irish Pub Company & McNally Design

McNally Design International, the Irish Pub Company and Fadó Irish Pubs are delighted to announce the first international expansion of the Fadó Irish Pub concept.  The new location will be located in the Oryx Hotel Abu Dhabi and is set to open the end of September 2016.


Fadó in the Oryx Hotel is currently being installed by the Irish Pub Company team and marks an important step in the future of Fadó and the Irish Pub Company.  Designed and built by the Irish Pub Company team in Dublin, Fadó Oryx is pure Irish craftsmanship from start to finish. Operational and marketing support is being provided from Fadó HQ in the USA.


The Irish Pub Company and Fadó have been working together since 1996 when the first Fado Irish Pub opened its doors in Atlanta. Twenty years, and many Fadó pubs later, the Irish Pub Company and Fadó are delighted to be marking their first international venture.


When speaking about the Fadó expansion, Simon McNally, Managing Director of McNally Design and Irish Pub Company, Middle East said:

“We are delighted to have partnered with Fadó once again on this exciting expansion of the brand. The Irish Pub Company have designed every Fadó pub in the chain, our team are bar design and build experts and with the unrivalled operational expertise of the team at Fadó, the package we have brought to Abu Dhabi is second to none. This is more than a design and build project for us, this is a commitment to our new licensing partnership with Fadó and we are looking forward to expanding this opportunity to suitable operators in new markets.” 


Speaking about this new venture into Abu Dhabi, Kieran McGill, President and CEO of Fadó Pubs Inc said:

Our relationship with the Irish Pub Company is a long and strategic one.  In addition to building the best Irish pubs in the world, we’re excited that they can connect our brand with like-minded local partners.  Abu Dhabi is an exciting, thriving market and we think it’s an excellent fit for the contemporary execution that is Fadó Irish Pub.”
