Photographer's Note

As I wrote, we missed our flight from Dubai to Warsaw (it was on Friday, 13th) and Emirates Airlines gave us free day in Dubai, luxury hotel with the three buffet meals. We went on a tour of the city, spent some time near the swimming pool but in the afternoon I wanted to see something more and I went for a walk. I hoped to see some mosques. I had no plan, just walked around. it is quite difficult to move in Dubai the street are highways and it is difficult to go on the other side. Anyway, I found smaller side streets and came to rather unexpected place - Irish Village.

The Village was designed using Irish craftsmanship and materials which were shipped to Dubai and reassembled on site, creating an authentic experience in the heart of the city. Even the paving stones came all the way from Liscannor in County Clare, on the west coast of Ireland. All props and décor items around The Village, from the telephone box down to the shop windows bric-a-brac, are genuine Irish pieces.
The Village terrace has been expanded over the years to satisfy Dubai patrons and can now accommodate up to 3500 people during special events and concerts. Famous performers have played at The Village: Sir Bob Geldof, Finbar Fury, The Human League, The Pretenders, Paolo Nutini, Macy Gray, The Wailers and Midge Ure to name just a few. Whether you decide to sit inside the traditional wooden pub or out on the terrace overlooking gardens and lake, let the traditional Irish music entertain you while sampling authentic meals served with a warm and friendly Irish smile – what better way of experiencing Ireland in Dubai!
