Dubai International Airport, Terminal 1, between Gates 123 and 125, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

By far the most popular gathering spot in the terminal, the Irish Village Pub, with its wood-paneled walls, high bar, moody lighting, and Guinness paraphernalia everywhere, is a little bit “Disney Ireland.” No matter; its fish-and-chips and sausages are renowned, and it is perpetually crowded (it’s open 24 hours) with military contractors returning from Kuwait and Iraq, businesspeople after a pint (or three), and travelers on their first stopover through Dubai, invariably shocked to find a pub here.
