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.

I remember it was a night cold enough to be in Thailand, and one of the Irish Pub restaurant manager invited us to go inside. We sat at a table in the indoor area, too bad because the restaurant has a nice outdoor garden. The menu is western and thai food, so we ordered a little of everything including pizza.... More

I've been here a few times, and have never been disappointed. They bake their own bread and it's GOOD. They also do a Caesar Salad right, lots if dressing, and good dressing. Their Coconut Pumpkin soup puts a delicious spin on things. The pies are good too, a bit heavy with the pastry, but tasty, and the pastry is flaky.... More

This is a great place to relax, have a meal or drinks and escape Chiang Mai for a while. Good quality food - we had Cottage Pie with extra veg and a bowl of chips - even if you pay for the western luxury. A nice outdoor courtyard, although the mosquitos can be a bit overwhelming.

Great atmosphere, good beers, tasty eats, and an owner that's deep on his sports game. Every single major sport is represented in the western world on screen here, and you may not need to drink anywhere else.

To find a good bread can be a bit of challenge in Thailand, so this place is a piece of heaven, with fresh breads been reposed three (?) times a day, for a good price. There's an outside green area to sit and enjoy your food. The menu also offers other options. :)

Not far from an Italian restaurant we had been before there is the Irish restaurant and pub. This place seems to be very popular in Chiang mai and I believe that have more than 30 years os success. They often make events as live music or big screens for watching football or anything else. Sitting in the outdoor area we... More

I tend to judge pub food by quality of the burgers. Chose the cheeseburger since the menu claimed they use 'the most succulent cuts of meat.' Burger was thin (again by pub standards) with a texture that felt like a filler had been added to it. Cheese slice was a pale yellow and added no flavor. Wife and daughter ordered... More

I was alone on my visit to Chiang Mai when I stumbled on this little delight. It was like a bar from home and very welcoming. It served all the usual drinks in a UK pub and was delightful having a JD and Coke...or two seated in the lovely gardens. I really wish I would have been hungry enough to... More
