HE U.N. IRISH PUB was originally established in August 1992 by Rosemary O'Connell (from County Monaghan) and her husband Daeng Putthawiteree (from Chiang Mai). Opening as The Crusty Loaf Bakery it quickly developed into a restaurant specializing in Western food and a local venue to come and meet new and old friends, usually over a few drinks. When licensing laws (yes they do exist) required that premises selling alcohol advertise as such, Daeng put up a chalkboard saying The Irish Pub. In 1998, Rosemary returned to Ireland as she wished her children to have an Irish education. Daeng remained but brought a new partner into the business, an Australian - Alexander (Sandy) Cullen. In 2001, after 9 years, Daeng left to open a new establishment. Since then, various owners from various nationalities (including German, Karen, English, Thai, Australian and Kiwi) have been involved with the running of the business. As none of these folk have been Irish, it was decided in 2003 (over a few drinks) to add The United Nations to the name, thus giving the establishment the full name of The United Nations Irish Pub, Restaurant and Crusty Loaf Bakery, or The U.N. Irish Pub for short. The current partners are Australian, Thai and Kiwi but the intentions of the pub remain the same, that is, to provide a casual Western/Thai atmosphere with good food and drinks at a reasonable cost.

The decor was not as tacky as some places, was like a typical pub. Had the bangers and mash which was excellent, Guinness not bad either. Coming from Cornwall I was amazed to see a Cornish pasty on the menu, did not try, looked nice but my only criticism was the crimp ran along the top and not the sides... More

Decent food. Satellite TV focused on sport. Subscribe for e-mail notifications of events and viewing schedules. Very pleasant and helpful ownership. Centrally located within the moat. Parking lot is about 100 m west.

Nice place for a change if you feel like a fix of western food - the food is quite good and the staff are very friendly and helpful. They definitely make the best mojito in Chiang Mai and that for me is a good reason to go back!

Really good for fresh bread & Steak Pies - the staff can be limited in Their English & don't always understand questions being asked about the food etc - but the food deserves the top marks.

Went here several times while staying in Chiang Mai and it never disappointed!! We tried a few of the sandwiches, the roast chicken and the the Irish stew...all of which were delicious! The staff are friendly and there's plenty of fans to keep the place cool.

Some time one gets a bit lazy and just wants the taste of home. This place is easy, convenient and friendly. A variety of seating options include a quite garden and a rowdy sports pub upstairs. Good strong drinks and a great variety of food items including some respectable Thai fair. The Massaman curry was great. An amazing apple pie... More

Felt like a break from Thai food. Menu has great selection. We ordered a hamburger and a steak/onion pie. Good came out so quick and was really awesome food. Not super cheap but well priced.
