We wanted somewhere to watch premier league football so we found the irish bar. So plus points: respond quickly to facebook enquiries, service very good, atmosphere ok, good pool table. Negatives: food was terrible. We ordered fish and chips and the only redeeming feature was the peas and tartare sauce. Fish was like mush inside a thick soggy batter and... More

Thanks for your review! Yes,we do try to reply quickly to any questions posted on social media about whats going on and when here. This normally strikes up an, all be it - 'cyber' friendship,where the customer generally introduces themselves when they get down to watch the match..and a bit of banter ensues...

Five star service, ice cold beer, food that tastes like home and a genuine atmosphere that makes you wanna stay there forever. Luckily for the owners, who both politely introduced themselves, there are other places to stay the night - so they do get to close down the bar every now and then! A must when visiting the island, not... More

Good Irish bar but nothing else. I liked it, the food was good but more expensive than the other places in Ko Lanta. I would come back but doesn't expect nothing to be great.

The owners themselves admit that this is not a gourmet restaurant but as a place for a drink and some hearty food it is hard to beat. If you go you will meet the owners as they make a point of going arond and talking to everyone. Good night out!

I went to this Irish bar last year and had a great time. Wonderful atmosphere, the manager, Darren is a class act Irish publican, great fun. It has extended the restaurant area outside and has a real buzz to it. It was a hidden gem on Lanta, now it is just a Jem!
