Tickets are priced at Dhs1,000 (US$276) each and limited to 5,000 ticket holders.

VISIT The Irish Village. The little piece of Ireland in the heart of Dubai allows you to step back in time and visit pubs of old. Designed to look like a typical Irish village street, serving traditional Irish food, it’s a little slice of home away from home.
In December 2016, The Irish Village opened its doors to its second home at Riverland Dubai, Dubai Parks and Resorts. Recreating the impressive high ceilings and unique finishes of the original, the Irish Village has been taken to (two) new levels with a memorabilia collection that allows you to experience yesteryear. At The Irish Village in Riverland, you can experience true hospitality while enjoying the views overlooking the river and park attractions.
