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.

No complaints here - Good food and great staff!

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.

I visited the UN Irish Pub 4/5 times in May while visiting friends in Chiang Mai and the standard of food and drink were consistently good with a fine selection of draught and bottled beers and cider and also tasty meals.

Me and my friend have been travelling for a while and often crave some "homely" western food, and this place definitely provides this! The bread is delicious, and everything comes out exactly as expected. Very good find.

This place is the best sports pub in CM, and has a great bakery attached. It also happens to do the best breakfast as well. Nice to sit outside or upstairs on a balcony early in the morning when it is quiet. If you are going for a large sporting event get there early because it will be completely packed!

Just because sometimes you really need to find a little bit of comfort food and environment. The U.N. Irish Pub is most excellent for it's imported beer offerings and sports on the tele. And now they have their own bakery next door, so their bread is made fresh daily. Added bonus!
